Bottle Bureau - Chelmsford

Once again we at the Community Hub, steeled ourselves against the cold November night and ventured out to the city’s newest drinking establishment, all in the name of bringing you the best in City life of course!!

Long been a feature of the city landscape, some might remember as the Hot House on the corner of Waterloo Road near Shire Hall. We’re sure and hoping no-one remembers the building as holdings cells taking prisoners to the shire hall for judgement…there are rumours of a tunnel still linking the two!




This historic buildings most recent incarnation is that of the Bottle Bureau, a very on trend Gin Bar in the heart of the city. A very rustic and almost gothic decor welcomes you as you walk done the steps to the hostelry, keeping in tune with its history there are cell doors separating some of the rooms and maybe some of there more potent brews keep in their own cell at the back of the Bar!!

The Staff are experts mixologists and the venue holds a plethora of Gins to temp your palate. Of course for non Gin drinkers (are there any)? there are the usual wine, beers and other spirits available.




We had a lovely evening at the Bottle Bureau the staff were wonderfully friendly. We at the Community Hub are excited to see all of the new bars and restaurants coming to Chelmsford, giving us all in our city a small taste of the Big City. We hope to see this continue and we hope that the Bottle Bureau as a new and very now Gin Bar will thrive amongst its contemporaries in our ever growing Chelmsford.
