Beneath is the dark secret of Bath’s cocktail scene. You’ll find this seriously cool bar hidden well, beneath, The Botanist on Milsom Street (which also does an above average line in cocktails).

Edgier and more atmospheric than its upstairs neighbour, Beneath has been inspired "by the rise of apothecary and the darker side of botany”, with the menu presented as a list of cures for all manner of ills. Whether there’s any proof that a cocktail can actually protect against lightning or purify the soul perhaps remains to be seen, but we reckon it’s got to be worth a go.
