Bristol’s Queen Square is to host a new pop-up restaurant from April 25th to May 7th, as a custom tipi structure is created to form a 100 seat formal dining space alongside a champagne and wine bar. The Eat Drink Bristol Fashion project is being managed by Josh Eggleton of the Pony & Trap in Somerset and Luke Hassell, Director of Tipi Events.
The main dining room will host a new resident restaurant each evening, including a five course tasting menu from Casamia, winner of Gordon Ramsay’s Best Restaurant in 2010. Throughout the morning and lunchtime, the venue will serve coffees, sandwiches, artisan breads and cakes, with free entry to this and the bar during the evenings.
Aside from the featured tasting evenings in the main dining area, local bands and DJs will provide entertainment alongside art installations provided by Arcadia, known for their impressive sculptures and performances at the Glastonbury Festival.
Commenting on the event, Josh Eggleton said; “We’ve set up Eat Drink Bristol Fashion to celebrate Bristol’s thriving food scene. Many local suppliers, chefs and restaurants are doing great work and in the process making Bristol one of the most exciting culinary cities in the country.
“It’s a simple but creative concept. By bringing restaurants from across the city to the centre we’ll give Bristolians the chance to experience great food of places they may have never ventured to before.”
Co-Director of the event Luke Hasell added; “We hope Eat Drink Bristol Fashion will further cement Bristol’s position on the UK’s cultural map. Not only will the food be fantastic, but the entertainment including visual art, bands and DJs will make our unique tipi venue an attraction in itself.”
Other restaurants due to feature at the venue include Dynasty, The Star & Dove, The Pump House, Bell’s Diner, Ronnie’s Restaurant and Namaskar Lounge. For tickets and more information about these and other events at Eat Drink Bristol Fashion, visit the main website.
