Bar and Beyond Chelmsford

A few weeks ago myself and a few other Essex bloggers were invited along to the newly opened Bar & Beyond for something to eat. This trendy new watering hole has taken over the old Chicago's premises and completely revamped it into something wonderful. When we walked into the new venue I was amazed at what they have done with the space, the theme throughout it industrial and covered in graffiti and looks fabulous. They have paid special attention to details such as tin cans for glasses and metal camping bowls for your food to be served in, and I myself love kitsch little accents like that. The seating are all old fashioned looking chesterfield sofa's and armchairs which look wonderful against the concrete flooring and the neon paint splattered on the vast walls. The venue itself is really spacious due to it being the old Regents Theatre building so it has high ceilings and original features that have been used to their advantage in the renovation.

After settling down on the sofa's one of the waitress' brought over a beautiful metallic gold bottle of fizz for us enjoy complete with ice fountain fireworks to wow us all.

Shortly after, our burgers arrived which wasn't a moment too soon because I was famished. I had chosen their classic joe veggie burger which comes with fried onions and jalapeƱos. There was a mountain of jalapeƱos in there, so it's perfect if you like it spicy, I however had to pull a few out to save my tongue melting out of my mouth.

Their triple cooked chips come served in little galvanised buckets and are absolutely amazing, firstly they're huge and so crispy I could have eaten a few buckets to myself. Their sweet potato fries are delicious as well, perfectly crisp and tasty. The only thing I would have liked to see on their menu is a couple more options for vegetarians, for the non meat eaters there was only the option of two burgers, one being the 'naked' which like the name suggests is a plain veggie burger in a bun or 'classic joe' like I had, so not very exciting and leaves a huge gap in their menu that I would be interested to see if they fill as they become more established.

Bar and beyond serve a menu of classic cocktails, possibly in the future there will be some more exciting and signature cocktails. But for the time being I'm sure you'll find something to take your fancy.
