On top of that, from the 15th April, we will be opening our brand-new secret courtyard to the public and offering a range of drinks, including cocktails, on our new takeaway menu!

The Venue

The Cloak and Dagger is certainly the most eclectic venue on Gloucester Road - and that’s really saying something!
Split over two floors, we have several distinct spaces that are available for hire.
1

Location

Known locally as Bristol’s Indie Shopping District, Gloucester Road and Stokes Croft are the destinations for anyone seeking to discover the more independent businesses Bristol has to offer. 

2

The Parlour

With custom murals and strikingly colourful interior decor,

The Parlour is the perfect bright and open space to host small gatherings or, for the more creative among you, workshops such as life drawing. Available for hire, it is also our main restaurant area!

3

The Carousel

Our main performance space, The Carousel embodies the gothic. A highly versatile space – we are able to modify The Carousel to suit everything from live music or intimate gig to comedy nights or cabaret style shows. 

4

The Courtyard

Our brand-new Courtyard was a labour of love and we are so happy with how it has turned out! A covered seating area means that you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail or delicious meal outside whatever the weather. Once our events start again, The courtyard wont be available Thursday, Friday or Saturday evenings.

Testimonials

Some testimonials from our amazing customers!
“From the bazaar brightness of its umbrella decorated roof to the Mexican hell fire club of a cabaret The Cloak & Dagger is a work of art. Every room and corner is crafted to create transport the visitor to another space and time. Like dedicated curators staff create the most exquisite experience. The food is legendary, the service impeccable but what is most memorable is the dedication to service. Commercial gain is secondary to the quality of experience. It is no wonder then that in the short time it has been open to the Cloak and Dagger has become a much-cherished second home for myself and for many fellow artists. I have performed, partied, dined and danced at the Cloak & Dagger. Becoming a CIC is a perfect next step.”
Edson Burton (Performer)
"We visited this recently opened venue after seeing a listing online for close-up magic. We weren’t disappointed. Magic Malka, the house magician, treated us to a baffling and entertaining show at our table. This was at our table upstairs (street level), but normally there would be a show downstairs. We had a tour of the downstairs area which is being done up and is full of weird and wonderful items. It reminded me of a New Orleans voodoo shop, which is never a bad thing. The staff and owner were all extremely friendly and made us feel like welcome guests. The venue itself is decorated in a quirky manner with a wall of vintage tea pots and other interesting things to look at while enjoying a huge range of teas, coffee and alcoholic drinks. They serve food too, although we didn’t realise so had already eaten. We were really impressed and will definitely be visiting again!"
G844OTO (Tripadvisor)
We had every nibble, and every small plate (and virtually every cocktail!) -nothing but praise for this place. Great service, - it almost felt like a normal night out. The food was magnificent really tasty loads of interesting flavours, cocktails delish, and waiters’ didn’t hang around bringing us new ones.

Thanks guys for a memorable night out.
