Rising star – Balloon Bar Grantham

Is gin your thing – maybe even a Belvoir Castle Gin? Or would you opt for a stylish cocktail? Whatever your tipple, it’s time to taste test the quirkiest bar in the Vale of Belvoir. It’s the perfect place to party – modern, stylish, giving off city chic vibes with its boothed areas and fabulously unique décor and greenery.

Grab your friends, get all glammed up and head to the Balloon Bar for an evening of escapism and fun. The balloon-filled basement bar is a brilliant backdrop for all your photographs and its cosy yet cosmopolitan atmosphere is the ideal place to try an adventurous cocktail or two. And don’t worry if you’re the designated driver, there’s a selection of mocktails too – and they look just as pretty when they are served up!

Stirred & boozy or classic – how do you like yours?

The cocktail menu showcases bespoke drinks such as View of the Vale, which includes a 10-year-old whisky, banana, cranberry and citrus, and the Duchess’ Garden made with sloe gin, blackberries and Belvoir Elderflower which is made on site.

If your tastebuds are more aligned to a G & T, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the many specialist gins on offer, with utterly curious flavours including grapefruit & mint, basil & grapefruit, cucumber & rose and Melton Mowbray’s very own hibiscus & birch!
