New micropub could open on site of old art supply shop in Bristol

A new micropub could be set to open on Gloucester Road, Bristol.

A planning application has been submitted to Bristol City Council to convert Art @ Bristol, an art supply shop (pictured above), into a new micropub.

Gloucester Road is said to be Britain's longest street of independent shops and is home to a variety of quirky and interesting pubs, stretching from the Drapers Arms in Horfield all the way down to the Blue Lagoon near the junction with Cheltenham Road.

And the new micropub, which would open just across the road from the Gloucester Road Ale House, would "sit comfortably within the existing character of Gloucester Road", according to a planning statement submitted by consultancy firm Ambergate Planning on behalf of the applicant.

The pub would be able to host between 40 and 50 people, and as it stands it will open between 12pm and 10.30pm - although the statement says that the owner will apply to the council to change this.

And the statement adds: "This is an opportunity for a small business to establish itself in a highly logical location to give it the best chance of success which would derive economic prosperity for its owners, staff and supply chain. It would also provide a service to the local community and assist in revitalising an existing unit which is in need of modernisation."
