Expect brace-wearing bartenders and bourbon at this classy speakeasy

The Bootlegger has the unique distinction of being a speakeasy-style bar in Bristol that isn't hidden behind a doorbell or a payphone. Instead, there's the shock of windows opening out onto the street, which makes for that rarest of commodities – natural light.

There's live music from chaps and chapesses on double basses, as well as DJs spinning more contemporary tunes.

At lunchtime, try the Bootlegger burger (£8.50) or the classic American cookies and cream (£4.50).
