With it's eclectic mix of retro furniture and 80's styling, Bluu does not take itself too seriously. Lived in values are at the heart of it's design. Early doors and into the evening Bluu comes alive playing a mix of music from funk and disco through to soul and house music. A cosy 60 capacity basement bar is available for private hire and the large pavement terrace is ideal for when the sun does shine! Bluu's vibrant, buzzing atmosphere makes it the perfect place to socialise with friends or colleagues, whatever the time of day. Bluu combines the best premium quality wines, spirits, beers and hand-crafted cocktails with exceptional modern British cuisine, served throughout the day and with a service that is second to none.
