An independent drinking den on Saville Row, The Common Room is one of Bath’s original late-night bars. An institution on the city’s party scene since the rose-tinted haze of the swinging 60s, the Common Room opened its doors in its current guise back in 2005. These days, the unmistakable retro glam surroundings are infused with a Tiki vibe and a love for rum, with over 100 varieties of the pirate’s tipple of choice – served neat, on the rocks or mixed into classic and creative cocktails – to tempt you. There’s also a stunning spirits selection alongside draught beers, cider, fine wines and more.
There’ll be no disco ball (or DJ) action for the foreseeable future. Our small-yet-perfectly-formed dance floor is currently off limits, replaced with a much more chilled, socially-distanced vibe.
Head upstairs to discover our lounge-style drinking parlour. It’s bold, blooming and provides the perfect intimate backdrop for date-night drinks or cocktails with the girls. Our first-floor bar is also available for private hire for small special occasions.
Want to learn more about rum or how to mix your favourite Common Room cocktail like a pro? We’re launching a series of masterclasses for all abilities, whether you’re a complete rum rookie or are more advanced in your knowledge of the pirate’s favourite drink. Taking place in the vibrant surrounds of our Tiki-inspired bar, you’ll get to sample our delicious wares, have some fun and depart with some new-found knowledge. Masterclasses require a minimum of two participants and are limited to six.
Rum Rookie – 1 hour, £40pp
The perfect introduction to rum, we’ll showcase a range of styles from the different rum regions and explore production methods and how they affect the liquid in this one-hour masterclass. Each person will try six affordable, yet quality rums and we’ll have snacks too. Ideal for groups of up to six.
Renowned Rum – 1 1/2 hours, £55pp
If you have some knowledge of the rum basics or just want some fine rums to try, this hour-and a-half masterclass goes into a bit more depth on the spirit’s history and production. Each person will try six premium rums and get some good snacks. Ideal for groups of up to six.
Cocktail Masterclass – 1 – 1 1/2 hours, £25pp
Whether you’re keen to up your cocktail-making game or fancy some mixology fun, then our cocktail masterclass is a deliciously fun way to spend an hour.
