The Loft @ The Alex

The Alex, in Alexandra Street, is the perfect place to kick back during the day or until late at night!


A welcoming and informal bar, open from breakfast ’til the early hours. A great place to relax, meet new friends and join in activities such as quizzing and retro-gaming. It is also an ideal place to watch the big games on TV whilst eating and drinking from street food influenced menus. Upstairs, 'The Loft' provides a great, informal space, perfect for live music.
