A co-working space has opened above one of Bristol’s oldest pubs.

Distil is located on the first floor of the Rummer in St Nick’s Market and offers hot desking for individuals and businesses.

The space opened in August 2020 and will remain open during the UK’s second lockdown for anyone needing a space outside the home to work.

As well as co-working space above the Rummer, the pub is offering hot desking from £5 for half a day, up to £80 for limitless use.

“Pubs in the UK have recently been experimenting with offering hot desks during the daytime, Distil Co-working takes this a step further, utilising under-used space in the building to provide a high quality, stylish co-working experience,” explains Sam Cunningham of Distil.

“Distil Co-working is a separate business with a dedicated space offering some of the most stylish co-working in the city, collaborating with the Rummer pub and cocktail bar to offer affordable hot desks in the bar area and inclusive drinks as part of membership packages.”
