Located in the basement Safe Room of the 1897 Titles Office, Halford is in the heart of the city and offers a neat cocktail list. For late night supper or pre show drinks, Halford is a contemporary take on the 1950's lounge bar, when conversation was king and elegant decadence met the modern world.
Grazers can delight in decadent jaffles and snacks right up until close as the music shuffles current cool and retro sass. Design-wise, Halford strikes a new chord; theatre lighting, steel bank-safe shutters, coloured velvet and golden swans. Follow us @halford_bar for more.
