“ Address: 41-49 St. Georges Rd / Cheltenham / GL50 3DZ / England „
Another recently-opened posh bar in Cheltenham that doesn't pretend to be anything else but a classy, exclusive joint where jeans and trainers will see you led away.
Part of the George Hotel, Monty's Brasseries occupies a ground floor and basement location of the hotel. The bar itself is large and comfortable with long, leather sofas, mood lighting, a glittering bar and clean, polished surfaces throughout.
Everything is ultra-modern and ultra-priced, with a pint of Fosters costing near-on £4; and a vodka and coke about £3. They also do the most extensive range of cocktails I have seen; including the delicious "French 75" - Tanqueray, fresh lemon juice and sugar, shaken and topped with champagne
This is the domain of the businessman with after-work outings to Montys a regular feature for many a Cheltonian. Smart, sophisticated and classy, the average age of a vistor is 30-40.
Live bands are another regular feature of Montys Bar, though you won't see any Oasis tribute acts here. There are jazz nights aplenty and some lovely orchestral bands playing. All in all, a lovely place to unwind with your business execs (if you have any!). If you're after a yobby kinda night, don't bother coming here!
Bistro style restaurant.
