Finzels Reach: Bristol’s most exciting water's edge social hotspot

Finzels Reach, Bristol’s most exciting water’s edge social hotspot will soon become home to independent restaurant and bar, Bocabar, joining Left Handed Giant Brewery and Bristol-based pizza pop-up Mission Pizza amongst several other niche offerings under advanced negotiations to create a go to water’s edge destination on Bristol’s floating Harbour.

The 4.7 acre site, made up of historic buildings, coupled with contemporary living, institutional offices and an eclectic dining offer has turned Finzels Reach into a ‘go to’ destination in the heart of Bristol city centre.

With 75% of the scheme now let or under offer, there are just two unique character units remaining for a new venture to occupy. Fermentation 2 (2,109sqft) and 1 Hawkins Lane (1,635sqft) are the remaining units available amongst operator tenants Bocabar, Left Handed Giant and Mission Pizza.

Bocabar will be open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, including a menu of 25 different stone-baked pizzas, gourmet burgers, sharing mezze plates and daily specials focusing on small, local suppliers and seasonal ingredients. From cocktails to specialist gins, and from local craft beers to wines, Bocabar will offer something for everyone.

Melissa and Paul Eavis of Bocabar said:

“We are hugely excited about joining the Finzels Reach community, which is fast emerging as a fantastic new quarter for the city. It’s a great fit for our business as we love the combination of historic and new architecture, giving the area its own unique character, combined with the fact it’s in an excellent location right in the heart of the city”.


Operating alongside Bocabar is Left Handed Giant who opened the brewpub’s doors back in June, creating a place for people to engage and drink fine beer, coupled with a slice of pizza from artisan, wood-fired vegetarian and vegan pizza makers Mission Pizza.

Bruce Gray, Managing Director at Left Handed Giant said:

“We fell in love with their pizzas at their first ever event, which was held at our taproom in St Philips and have invited them back to the taproom whenever they could fit us in to their busy events schedule! Their pizzas are genuinely amongst the best I have ever tasted and what goes better than pizza and beer?”
