About

The Architect is an art deco café bar bringing a taste of Europe to Bristol’s historic harbour.

By day, The Architect is a warm, welcoming haven on the quayside, serving speciality coffees, teas & sourdough sandwiches — it’s the perfect place to meet, or take a quiet moment to read & make plans.

By night, The Architect is a sophisticated bar with fine wines & craft beers, cheese & charcuterie boards. In the summer, our terrace is where you can catch the evening sun with a unique view of the water, passing ferry boats & the lively festival culture.

The Architect is a social space at the heart of Design West, a centre of excellence for design and placemaking. Beautifully designed, the café bar celebrates the heritage of the historic building — a former sail loft, and the first centre for architecture outside London — with contemporary elements made by local metalworkers, upholsterers and craftspeople.

Design West aims to inspire people to design better, healthier places to live, work & relax.
