Albert’s Loft Cocktail Bar – Shrewsbury

Discover the most unique cocktail bar in Shrewsbury, hidden away within the confounds of Albert’s Loft within his Shed. Upstairs you’ll find a range of cocktails and premium spirits, along with quality wines, Champagne and prosecco sourced from local merchants Tanners Wines. But we’ll warn you, this isn’t any old Cocktail Bar, we’re Shrewsbury’s most exclusive, open to the public only on certain evenings. It’s like a secret club, and Albert’s invited you around.

Like most old folk, Albert likes to do things properly. So not only did he open up a Cocktail Bar in Shrewsbury, but he also sourced some of the tastiest craft beers he could find, tested them and reordered. Don’t be surprised though if the bar menu keeps changing, he likes it that way; always bringing in new brews for you to try.

But it’s not all about the drinks, is it. The Loft has pretty epic views of when you’re out on the balcony (which Albert just finished decorating too), not to mention the ultra comfy sofas inside. And as all good hosts should, each week Albert invites his favourite electronic dance music DJs to come and keep you entertained until the wee hours.

Come discover Shrewsbury’s secret Cocktail Bar.
