Kongs of King Street
Let your competitive spirit take over at Kongs. If vintage arcade games such as stone-cold classics Street Fighter II or PacMan aren’t your style, give your wrists a workout on the table football table or don your coolest headband on the table tennis table where a ricocheting shot could end up…
One of Bristol's iconic bars, Kongs is a relaxed spot with ping pong tables, table football and lots of retro arcade games.
Playing computer games since we were toddlers and spending most of our working lives working in bars, creating Kongs of King Street in Bristol was the next logical step. Since opening the doors in 2014 the response has been so good that a sister site was on the cards and after much thought Cardiff…
Late-opening bar with a clubby feel and several arcade machines. Great for groups in their twenties and upwards. Good beer selection and I hear the food isn't bad either.
Retro arcade machines, table foosball, ping-pong, great beers and fine music.
“The Apple's location - set within a converted barge boat - immediately makes it a strong contender as one of one of the coolest bars in Bristol. Add to that its riverside terrace and a mammoth stock of cider, alongside ales, spirits and wines and you've got yourself a top-notch afternoon of alfresco drinking.”
“If you love meat, you'll love Grillstock. a 5 minute walk from the flat, you'll get a big old tray of slow cooked meat. The burnt ends are to die for. ”
“This is a fantastic steak grill near St Nick's market. They offer a relatively limited menu and you basically gotta love steak to enjoy it but if you do it's worth a visit. It's suprisingly big all in all but feels like an intimate restaurant because of how it is laid out. They won 'Best Steak' in the Bristol Good Food Awards this year so it's not just us who love it! ”
“Still one of the best burgers in town. Expect hipster service and beer choices and rather good food. It gets busy so you may have to wait for a table and enjoy a drink on King St, but it is worth it.”
“Beer everywhere. There are literally hundreds of choices in the ‘Emp’. Don’t be fooled by the small bottle shop on street level. Three vaulted cellars downstairs play host to more beer than anywhere else in Bristol. An ever changing selection comes from all four corners of the globe as well as closer to home, often in the shape of breweries including Wiper & True and Ashley Down, who share premises in St Werburgh’s, and Towles from Easton. Belgian beers are celebrated every Wednesday, with 10% off and 250 bottles from which to choose. ”
