Craft beer and cocktail bar with an industrial feel, set in an old amusement arcade

Collaboration is the name of the game at the Urban Standard, a bar that brings together the teams behind the former Urban Wood on Colston Street (now the second Roasemarino restaurant) and Moreish on Chandos Road.

The result is a bar set in an old amusement arcade. It’s now just as fun, swapping Pac Man and Asteroids for Wiper & True beer – the gold standard for Bristol breweries and a firm indicator that a bar knows what it's doing.

Up to five beers can be on tap here at any time, including Arbor Transatlantic PA. The food is more than just of the ‘dude’ variety – but their £8.95 burgers remain one of the bar’s most popular items on the menu. Street art fans should keep an eye for a huge piece by My Dog Sighs on a side wall.
