Located in the beating heart of the city centre

One Eight Six occupies a Grade II-listed building with a vast and rich history itself. By day, the barbers provides a full hair cutting and styling service, but as night falls and the haze of twilight sets in, it is transformed into a bustling live music bar, the only place to be.

Tips to make your trip more enjoyable

We operate an all seated venue and would encourage all guests to book ahead.

This means we’re fully booked at the time you have requested. The times currently available on the day specified will be shown.

We allocate tables based on a 1 1/2 or 2 hour duration dependant on your group numbers. If you have any special time requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Due to government restrictions, we can take bookings for a maximum of 6 people, from either the same household or as part of an organised support bubble. We also ask that any groups of five or more people are mixed male and female.
