Thanks for this SupperThyme!
Thank You 40 Alfred Place – The Perfect Pop Up Venue in Bristol
In November 2012 SupperThyme Bristol launched our Pop-Up Restaurant using 40 Alfred Place. After 2 years of discussion, deliberation and distractions it took the discovery of 40 Alfred Place to give us the perfect place to start. We kept hearing about this lovely private hire venue from the many people who had visited this central venue for a Christmas Party, Pop Up Restaurant Night or Supper Club.
We checked the place out and it soon became apparent that this venue fitted the bill perfectly! Comfortably seating just shy of 40 covers over two well presented floors, meant we could serve enough covers to ensure a viable and managable night of pop up dining. Many other venues for hire in Bristol were only available for large private functions and corporate events or were by no means as accommodating to our needs.
The venue is clean and fresh with a modern yet rustic feel. If you are in need of a venue to hire in Bristol as a pop up restauranteur, private caterer or party thrower we would highly recommend 40 Alfred Place . The venue is available to hire all day as standard, allowing use of the fantastic open kitchen space to prepare and set up the tables/decorations. The kitchen is equipped with all the basics such as pots and pans, chopping boards and all the other essential preparation equipment. The tables are plain with all the necessary plates, bowls, platters and cutlery. Luxuries such a glass washer, ice machine and lots of refrigeration for drinks and storage was great! Not to mention a proper 2 Group Espresso machine (which as a trained Barista I was able to utilise)! A full itinerary was sent to us at time of hire to make it clear if we needed to get other bits in advance. The only thing we needed to bring was wine glasses, although there are plenty of other glasses behind the bar.
The venue has an alcohol licence which was also handy for us.
SupperThyme is the brainchild of Rich and Dan, two young foodies from Bristol looking to stamp their mark on the local pop up food scene. After the success of our launch night at 40 Alfred Place we hope to return for a series of Pop Up dining events in 2013 both in Kingsdown and elsewhere, We already have our next night planned in 40 Alfred Place December to run a Private Pop Up for a local company’s Christmas party. You can keep up to date with our next Pop Up’s by following SupperThymeBristol on Facebook or @supperthymechef on Twitter.
