Belgium and Blues Southampton is our original site.
Coming from a desire of three friends who wanted that little bit more from a beer focused bar, Belgian and Blues was born.
Set in the heart of Southampton's cultural quarter B&B is an independently owned Belgian and Craft Beer bar and brasserie.
We offer anywhere in the region of 120 beers from all around the world with possibly the best range of Belgian beers this side of the channel!
It's not all about the beer though, we have an fantastic array of wines, spirits and ciders as well as a menu of 'Food to drink to!
Music is also a big part of B&B. We love to be different and have a great lineup of Blues and Americana acts as well as vinyl only Djs playing laid back funk, soul & hip hop through to blues and reggae
Open since October 2016 we have had tens of thousands of beer lovers through our doors, put on some banging shows, made some amazing friends and drunk an absolute s*&%t load of fantastic beers.
We have had like most a little break since the arrival of Covid19 but are ready to welcome you back
Now for the next part of our journey!
OPENING WITH COVID 19
We have thought long and hard about how to open B&B and be safe for both our customers and staff. With the aid of the governments guidelines we have put together a policy that should provide a safe but also relaxed and fun environment to enjoy what we do.

FACE COVERING WILL BE MANDATORY WHEN ENTERING, EXITING & MOVING AROUND THE BAR FROM THURSDAY

It may be wise to book to avoid disappointment - As we move into Tier 2 households cannot mix indoors outside of a support bubble so please take that into account when booking.
