On Valentine's Day, we were staying in Chester and struggling to find a table for dinner. The staff at Bar Lounge were extremely helpful and accommodating, despite being very busy. We enjoyed an excellent meal with delightful, friendly service. We cannot recommend this bar highly enough!

This was my first visit to this establishment. Came here with a friend for cocktails. Sat comfortably at the bar and was handed a comprehensive cocktail menu. Had a couple from here, which were expertly made and beautifully presented. My favourite was a French Martini....and I have never tasted a better one! Great ambience and the lighting and decor is...
