Scriptorium - A Medieval Cocktail Emporium


Dates: 18/06/2021, 19/06/2021

Venue: Blackfriars Priory

Step back in time as the ancient Scriptorium at Blackfriars Priory will be transported back to the thirteenth century for a Medieval themed cocktail bar.

With moody lighting, faux antler chandeliers and an eclectic cocktail menu brought to you by ‘The Cocktail Service’, a rare trip to Scriptorium is not to be missed.

Themed around the fascinating history of the site, the Scriptorium is widely considered to be the oldest standing purpose-built library in Northern Europe and is of international historical importance.

The building was used by Dominican Friars Monks as a place to study, with carefully positioned windows for maximum light and a cool ground level for storing food. Rarely open to the public, we invite you to step inside our very own time capsule and sample a stunning menu of experimental and traditional cocktails. For those who prefer a simpler tipple, mocktails and a standard bar menu will also be available.

Fancy some food to go with your drinks? We’ve got you covered. We’ve teamed up with Openside Pizza so you can tuck in and get that foody fix with vegan options available alongside the standard menu. Need gluten free? No problem! Get in touch to let us know no later than 24 hours in advance and we can get that ready for you.

Openside Pizza is a mobile pizza company run by Gloucester’s No1 restaurant on Tripadvisor, Hooker & Eight and Gloucester Rugby’s current captain Lewis Ludlow. Hand stretched stone baked pizza cooked on the flame to order!

Good To Know

The bar will be open in two hour sessions. Tables are available in groups of 6, barrel tables with bar stools for 2 and a comfy lounge area for 5. Pre-booking essential.

Tickets are £10.00 per person, which includes your first cocktail. Over 18s only.

Upon arrival, you will be asked to check in either manually or by scanning the QR code in the NHS app for track and trace. You will then be shown to your table by a member of the team. Masks should be worn when moving around the room but can be removed once you are seated at your table.
