Nestled in Millennium Square and built on ecological principles, attendees will enjoy sunrise yoga classes, BUMP roller disco, independent food traders and free film screenings on Big Screen Bristol, all placed around a recycled shipping container bar aptly named Bristol Beach Club
Upcycling will be a key focus throughout The Square, using old materials and creating a new upbeat theme for the whole of Bristol to enjoy. Located in Millennium Square just behind the hustle and bustle of the iconic Bristol waterfront, The Square will create a family friendly haven alongside entertainment for adults of all ages running for six weeks only. The Square', which has been created by Pure Spaces, working alongside We The Curious, will kick off from Thursday July 25th running to 7th September. The hottest spot in town will feature Bristol Beach Club, fitness activities including Sunrise Yoga, Bump Roller Disco and free film screenings from Big Screen Bristol. Visitors can enjoy a taptail (cocktails on tap), delicious street food from local food heroes The Cowshed and Pepe Nero with the chance to relax in their own private cabana. As the evening rolls in; music, free outdoor film screenings and competitive games will keep everyone coming back for more this summer.
With enough entertainment for all ages, participates have the opportunity to start the day with a spot of sunrise yoga followed by a hearty bowl of fresh healthy breakfast. The games areas will feature dedicated pétanque and corn hole setups alongside a BUMP Roller Disco stage taking up the rest of Millennium Square. Deckchairs will be available throughout the summer to watch popular family films on Big Screen Bristol’s 296 inch display.
Ross Blake, from Pure Spaces says “Being born in raised in Bristol, its always great to come back. After the success of the Apres Bar we were delighted to work again with ‘We The Curious’ and offer something a little different to the people of Bristol. This time we have a little something for everyone, with Games, BUMP Roller Disco, Sunrise Yoga, delicious street food and of course our immersive pop-up beach club where you can get cocktails on tap and relax in your own private cabana! We are only open for 6 weeks, so make sure you pop along and see us”
The food and drinks area named Bristol Beach Club will host bespoke pop-up converted shipping containers and a rare designed space which isn’t just a bar; guests will be transported to their own little beach holiday right in Bristol city centre. The food comes from The Cowshed: Bristol's finest butchers and steak restaurant. They’ll bring the best of their flame-grilled succulent BBQ meat. Other food will be provided by Pepe Nero upholding an independent vibe with this family-run business who brought Bristol their first vegan pizza. They’ll be offering some mouth-watering pizzas including vegan and gluten-free options.
Lydia Ladbrooke, from We The Curious says “We’re delighted to welcome Pure Spaces back to Millennium Square again, to create some really memorable and exciting experiences for the summer - we hope that it’ll appeal to our family audiences, but also to visitors to the city - it'll be great to see Millennium Square used in a different way with a whole mix of activities for all. We can’t wait to see if open at the end of July!”
With summer set to be blazing, Bristol Beach Club and beyond is a place to chill out with friends, bring the family or simply pop in for a cheeky taptail. It’s time to escape the city and get immersed in a beach set up around Millennium Square.
