Plonk, Wine Bar, Bradford

Carmel Smickersgill, Tours & Activities Editor

In recent years Bradford has seen a resurgence of independent bars. As we become less willing to spend a night out in places that give you a carbon copy experience, whether you are in Bradford, Belfast or Borough, streets like North Parade are becoming the norm. This collection of passion project businesses, for the love of good company and good booze, has earned its reputation as Bradford’s independent quarter. The combination of high quality goods and local charm makes the area perfect for an independent pub crawl when those days return. One of the must see stops on the way is definitely Plonk Bar.

old fashioned classics alongside interesting inventions with a Bradfordian twist

Although Yorkshire is a great place for all things beer based, Plonk sits among the Bier cafe’s and local brewery fuelled establishments offering fine wine, cocktails and everything in between. Their menu includes old fashioned classics alongside interesting inventions with a Bradfordian twist. Although it’s the place to go for those who aren’t beer drinkers, they still have a good selection of rotating craft beers and lagers. You can expect to find a well curated selection of spirits and wines, with a passion for lesser known producers as well as a full stock of popular favourites.

Plonk has been serving up a sumptuous bottomless brunch. A heavily laden charcuterie board, side tapas and bread can be enjoyed alongside free flowing Prosecco, mimosas, beer, vodka and gin. Be sure to check their social media for when they are next able to open for brunch.

In addition to the main bar, Plonk has an 18 person capacity meeting room. It’s a brilliant central location, only a short walk from both train stations. The ideal room for you to hold those particular work meetings, which may require a fully stocked cocktail bar for when business is dealt with.
