Welcome to Bath’s No1 Cocktail Bar
Sipping iced mojitos as the sun goes down, enjoying chilled Champagne in the private lounge, or sharing a bottle of red in the vaults. Our venue creates a sophisticated atmosphere for pre-dinner drinks, before our late-night club takes you dancing into the small hours.
Sub13 is available to book in its entirety, allowing your party the freedom to explore the venue uninterrupted. Exclusive hire is available from Sunday-Friday, subject to a minimum spend

Meet the movers and cocktail shakers behind the Sub13 bar.
Co-founder & Director
Any good? Bath legend whose penchant for hosing you down with Champagne is notorious well beyond the city walls. He doesn’t like going small and can be found enjoying a Dark & Stormy in Sub most weekends.
Tim has been in the booze trade for over ten years. Wine is his passion, but his cocktail preference is exclusively diurnal: Martinis in the morning and Manhattans in the evening. He’ll drink Champagne at any hour.
Adam has been with us for a couple of years now. He is good at keeping the team on course although less so once he gets stuck into his favourite tipple: Absinthe. Another one of the team who doesn’t eat meat we often wonder how he got so tall on a diet of cheese and lettuce!
Cool, calm and collected Will knows how to keep things on an even keel. Just don’t get him started on the Roman Empire or you may get a lecture with your mojito!
Ramsey divides his time between the gym and the bar, but he is an exert on all things alcohol. His favourite cocktail is a Penicillin, we’re not exactly sure why but he assures us he’s never needed antibiotics!
Hailing from Greece, Spyros is a great bartender with a serious taste for hummus! His favourite cocktail is dry martini with Martin Miller's Gin and a twist.
Dec has been part of the Sub family since he was 17, working his way up from a glass collector to the bar. He may be 19 now but will always be the baby of the team!
Having cut his teeth on the terrace bar Louis has now come in from the cold to join the main bar team. He may be mild mannered but he is also a mean mixology machine that will make your mojito in record time!
You need a certain sense of humour to work behind the bar and Louis is living proof of that. It’s always a relief to see Louis walk in to start his shift, anyone who has been in the car with him will know why…!
New recruit Joe is also a music student. We’re yet to ascertain if his singing is as good as his cocktails, so why not ask for a song with your order and judge for yourself!
Sam is the man that keeps everything behind the scenes running smoothly, and we couldn’t manage without him! He might look like a bit like Jesus but don’t fooled, soft-spoken Sam rules the glass collectors with a rod of iron.
Bartender & Host
Essex girl Mia is to be found as the host-with-the-most on Saturday nights. If it’s a bottle of something you’re after she’ll serve it to your table with a wink and a smile…!
Xtopher is our resident DJ, playing his famous Friday Night Disco slot and Saturday night in the Sub 13 basement bar till late! Check out his mixes on mixcloud here!
Head doorman Dan might look a little intimidating but he has a heart of gold. In his spare time he enjoys relaxing with his Siamese cats Rocky and Carl. Aww.
