So. Bournemouth restaurants by the sea

Are you and your friends looking for a great night out in Bournemouth? Then head down to Bar So, located next to Bournemouth’s award-winning beaches. For tasty food, mouth-watering cocktails, and a friendly atmosphere, Bar So is one of the top Bournemouth restaurants by the sea.

Delicious food by the sea in a stylish Bournemouth restaurant

Bournemouth has so many restaurants to choose from, how are you supposed to make a decision? The choice is easy when you pick Bar So. When it comes to atmosphere, stylish decor and talented cocktail bartenders, Bar So is unrivalled in Bournemouth.

One of the many reasons Bar So is such a popular bar and restaurant is due to our location. We are located less than five minutes walk from Bournemouth’s beaches and our town centre is equally close. We are also located opposite the entertainment venue Bournemouth International Centre, so why not book tickets to see a show, and then visit us for a meal and drinks to make your evening that extra bit special. Hire out our private bar and let us organise the perfect event tailored to your party requirements, with food, drinks and entertainment taken care of by us.

At Bar So, we will cater food for all sized parties, hen and stag dos, wedding receptions, birthdays and more! We can modify our menus for any food allergies. Our delicious menu includes:

  • Hot and cold buffets
  • Canapés
  • Bar snacks
  • Formal dining
  • Cocktails

What makes Bar So the trendiest venue for a night out

Since launching in the early noughties, we’ve worked hard to build a celebrated reputation for Bar So as being one of the best Bournemouth restaurants by the sea.

Our contemporary and fashionable venue boasts a 360 degree island bar for a fun visual experience. Upstairs is bathed in light from our atrium skylights, and our outdoor heated patio is ideal for dining outside, within view of the beaches. Downstairs, glamorous interior decorations surround our dance floor and bar, with VIP booths available, which are ideal for private dining for you and your friends.

Visit Bar So for the delectable food and drink, and stay for the entertainment afterwards! Our night time events will amaze you; we have celebrated nights like Ministry of Sound and Friday’s at Bar So, which includes 2-4-1 cocktails until midnight. Join us on Wednesdays for our So Salsa night, where legendary salsa dancer Enrique Perez Valdes, will teach you moves that all your friends will be jealous of!

We are proud to be a five times winner of the prestigious ‘Bournemouth’s Best Night Out’ awarded by the Best Bar None Travel and Tourism Awards.
