Despite the numerous high profile restaurant closures in Bristol this year, there’s also plenty of new arrivals to look forward to - including a very exciting one this evening.

Corner 77 will add another string to the city’s culinary bow when it opens in the building formerly occupied by MEATliquor, which closed in October last year.

The vibrant street food and events venue, headed up by the teams behind Bravas on Cotham Hill, Bakers & Co on Gloucester Road and Cargo Cantina in Wapping Wharf, will be home to a range of pop-ups from popular Bristol restaurants which will change on a regular basis.

In the pipeline for Corner 77 are exclusive pop-ups, kitchen takeovers by Bristol eateries and fun events such as a bottomless brunch, tapas takeover by the Bravas team and a crab shack.

The main goal, say the team behind it, is to bring together a collective of the best food vendors, producers and food professionals in Bristol in a casual, fun and inviting space for customers.

There will also be a fully licensed bar serving natural wines, craft beer and cocktails as well as tap takeovers and collaborations with local brewers.

Co-owner Imogen Waite said: “We’ve got a cracking line up of street food for our opening weekend and with some special tastings at the bar too we hope it’ll be a buzzing atmosphere for people to come down and enjoy our unique new home for independent food & drink.

“Our hope is that Corner 77 will be somewhere for everyone to come and relax with friends or family, enjoy great food, service and atmosphere and that the street food and events we host will mean there’s an ever-changing feast here for our customers.”
