Phase two of the work at Sub 13 is progressing nicely, and we are very close to announcing something very exciting!

The two ground floor rooms above Sub 13 have been gutted, the old plaster and wallpaper removed and traditional lime plaster lovingly re-applied by some very skilled local craftspeople. Our crack team of tradespeople (Tim Page Electrical and Brûler) are now busily installing new electrical and plumbing services, before a brand new floor is laid and then sumptuous Farrow & Ball sloshed over the lovely, crisp walls.

But why all this effort? Well, the next phase is even more exciting: we have expert cabinet maker Matt Pugh and metal magicians Bristol Restorations beavering away on two new swanky zinc and brass-clad bars, and the Rolls-Royce of cocktail bar creators Cantilever are working their magic on two stainless steel cocktail stations…

Have you guessed yet? Correct: we will soon be opening two new bars at ground floor level! An amazing achievement that has been over a year in the planning. As well as employing more staff, we will be able to serve more cocktails more quickly, and for the first time in our 13 year history you’ll be able to walk from the pavement straight into a bar and then straight into our fabulous garden terrace.

As well as the great technical teams already mentioned, we have got the unique Felix Lighting sourcing the statement-piece lamps, and great local furniture maker RDI Interiors building the seating for us. All of it set off with a stylish new tiled entrance, thanks to the great folks at Mandarin Stone. The team has been managed by Frome based construction firm McIntosh DBR, who you may know from the work they have done for Babington House. They have been a pleasure to work with and come highly recommended if you’re planning your own project!

The new bars will be opening in the next two weeks. We’re very, very excited and cant wait to show you them. We’ll be letting you know more details between now and then so keep checking back to be the first to know all about it!
