Allandale Road is a wonderful independent hub just outside the city centre. Now there’s a brand new cocktail spot as the Allandale Bar has opened its doors.
Open daily from 3pm and serving high end cocktails, bottomless fizz and beer offers and more, it looks a great new addition to the area. We caught up with the manager, Matthew Davies, to find out a little more about it.
The Allandale Bar is now open on Allandale Road, what can people expect from the bar?
Our goal is to provide a relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy a casual drink whether it’s a beer after work, a couple drinks with a few friends on a Saturday night or if you’re looking for somewhere to take a date for high end cocktails.
What attracted you to open up in Stoneygate?
Well most of us have lived and worked in and around Leicester for a very long time and Stoneygate has always been an area we were very fond of with a more personal feeling than being right in the city centre. This is something we want to focus on and from the last week of being open we’ve got to really experience this community first hand and we definitely made the right choice by opening here.
What is your favourite drink on the menu?
Personally the Eye candy is a favourite. It’s a sweet rum based cocktail that you add a pinch of candy floss to and personally I can’t think of anything better.
What else can people expect from the menu?
Our main focus is drinks but we are serving nibbles too, including olives, peanuts and an antipasti board, plus in the near future we will be running afternoon teas as well.
Tell us about your bottomless deals…
Yes so we have a bottomless beer or Prosecco deal which has a set time slot from 3-5pm each day. Between those hours it’s unlimited refills on any of our draught beers or on Prosecco depending on your preference. It costs £20 per person.
If I was coming to Allandale Bar for the first time, what should I order?
If your looking for something to share then our Jinjito that comes in a large sharing jar is a great place to start however if that doesn’t take your fancy then our staff team will be able to find something that’s to your taste.
