'Attended launch event: excellent atmosphere, decor, food / drink and staff'

Dion McCarthy, Pure Networking

I was visiting from Switzerland last weekend. I heard great things about Piquant. Sure enough I felt this place really deserved a review. The food and drink are spectacular. It is a perfect place to enjoy any night of the week



"Finally! Just what Winchester needs! An upbeat, sophisticated cocktail bar with the most helpful, knowledgeable and experienced barmen in the city. Classy and professional atmosphere, my new favourite bar in town."

Joe Perrett

We love the concept of Modern Tapas (small plates) and use locally sourced quality produce to create a variety of delicious hot and cold dishes with the authentic flavours from all over the world.

Our resident Mixologist Rick Wilson-Rose has crafted the perfect cocktails using the finest ingredients. The list is constantly evolving with some exciting and unique new house recipes. Classics include the Old-Fashioned and Espresso Martini, together with new creations such as the Piquant Sour and our most popular cocktail the Silent Rose, are well worth a try. These delicious cocktails are served in ice cold glasses courtesy of our cutting edge thrill boxes which definitely add to the theatre of cocktail making.
