The Balloon Café & Bar


You’ll notice a few changes at The Balloon Bar as they try and make sure the bar is as safe as possible for staff and customers. Currently they are operating on a takeaway only basis.

They serve, tasty sandwiches, great coffee and a selection of bottled and canned beers and ciders. They’re committed to being a more sustainable bar by reducing waste and single-use plastic, so remember to bring your keep-cup with you for reduced prices.

More than just a Students’ Union bar, the Balloon Bar offers some of the best prices on food and drinks in the Clifton area.

The Balloon Bar offers fresh, locally sourced and good value food throughout the week. Hot menu items are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays, alongside a wide selection of coffees and pastries. The Balloon Bar caters for everyone, offering a vegan menu as well as multiple gluten free and vegetarian options.

A projector screen, tv and BT Sport subscription allows the Balloon Bar to showcase all manner of entertainment. There’s also a spacious terrace area to relax in the sun.

Deals are available daily on food and drink, and there’s a weekly specials menu to compliment the main menu. All are served by friendly and attentive staff. Regular events take place including student society takeovers and private bookings can be accommodated outside of term-time.
