V bar is definitely one of the best bars in Colchester. It is a popular little venue on the high street serving drinks and cocktails, and food during the day. It also has a function room available for parties and conferences. It mainly plays indie and alternative music, from old classics to the latest hottest tracks. The drinks are fairly cheap and there is a massive variety of shots and cocktails. The bar is mainly student-orientated but is very popular in the evenings with all sorts of people. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a nice place to drink.
Another supb bar in Colchester, not as atmospheric and amusing as Twisters, and the music is particularly catered to certain tastes for certain nights but there are always some interesting people and the building itself is more spacious and comfortable than Twisters.
A good late-night bar, but it gets very crowded by about midnight - and expect to see loads of people on the pavement outside waiting or taxis home after it closes at 2 am
Superb little bar, so much better then all the chain pubs that infest Colchester! This place has a really friendly atmosphere, with incredibvly friendly staff that seem to genuinely want to talk to the customers. It seemed to be one of the only busy bars the last Saturday that I was in town, and I see why! The dj really had the crowd going with a really good mix of new and old songs, and even though it was busy, we never had to wait more then 5 minutes to get served! The cocktails were original and delicious as well! I think everyone who likes a great night out should all meet here one night, it'll be awesome!
