The Perfect Location

If you’re looking for the best gin bar in Bournemouth, you’ve come to the right place!

We’re ideally located, a five minute walk from Bournemouth town centre and just a few minutes from the beach. We offer FREE parking at the hotel for anyone visiting our gin bar, although this can be busy at peak times so cannot be guaranteed.

Our ‘London-look’ gin bar is ideal for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap before bed for hotel guests. And if you live in the Bournemouth area, it’s the perfect place to catch up with your friends or colleagues.

Summertime sees our beautiful terrace gardens transform into a suntrap, the perfect place to enjoy an alfresco drink. And in the colder months relax in our bar with a G&T in hand, next to our cosy, open fire.

Gin menu


The Connaught Gin Bar Bournemouth is open to the general public every day from 11am until 11pm. If you’re a hotel guest then it’s open 24 hours.
