Scriptorium - A Medieval Cocktail Emporium

About

Step back in time as the ancient Scriptorium will be transported back to the thirteenth century for a Medieval themed cocktail bar.

With moody lighting, faux antler chandeliers and an eclectic cocktail menu brought to you by 'The Cocktail Service', a rare trip to Scriptorium is not to be missed.

Themed around the fascinating history of the site, the Scriptorium is widely considered to be the oldest standing purpose-built library in Northern Europe and is of international historical importance.

The building was used by Dominican Friars Monks as a place to study, with carefully positioned windows for maximum light and a cool ground level for storing food. Rarely open to the public, Blackfriars Priory invites you to step inside their very own time capsule and sample a stunning menu of experimental and traditional cocktails. For those who prefer a simpler tipple, mocktails and a standard bar menu will also be available.

Fancy some food to go with your drinks? Blackfriars Priory have got you covered. They've teamed up with Openside Pizza so you can tuck in and get that foody fix with vegan options available alongside the standard menu. Need gluten free? No problem! Get in touch to let them know no later than 24 hours in advance and they can get that ready for you.
