Blues Bar originally began life as a popular coffee shop. However, changes in local laws meant that tables and chairs were no longer allowed on the footpath, the preferred place for coffee drinkers. As a result, Blues Bar was born…

Why the name Blues Bar? Simple, one of the partners is called Mr Blue, hence “Blue’s” Bar 🙂 Blues is open from 6.30am and still serves our own specially roasted and blended coffee. Our coffee is one of the very best tasting available, full flavoured with no bitterness… try it (and the superb egg coffee!!!)

During April 2018, Blues underwent major renovations to give the bar an even more open aspect, and increase the space available for seating. The actual bar was moved and made
smaller. A new toilet was a major improvement and is voted by many as the best toilet in any bar in the Old Quarter. What do you think?

We added TV’s, projection screen, band stage area for live music, new floor, new ceiling and opened out the entire street frontage. A new kitchen was built and an all new food menu created, featuring local Vietnamese dishes and English style pub favourites, pies, burgers and pizza’s.

Despite all the changes we managed to still keep the Blues Bar ‘feel’, which makes it so unique and ranked as one of the best bars around.

Come and see us soon.
