Lincoln floating cocktail bar sets sail as winter wonderland

It’s time to sail again! Lincoln’s only floating cocktail bar has been transformed into a cozy winter wonderland.

The Barge Cocktail Bar on the Brayford has had a tough couple of weeks with the recent high water levels but it is now back open again.

Lincoln SU has been busy transforming the deck into a ski lodge with added heaters to keep the cold weather at bay.

They even have a new winter cocktail menu to get punters in the festive mood like the Swedish Winter, Hazelnut and Raspberry Eggnog and the Winter Berry Bramble.

The Barge opens again on Thursday, November 20 from 3pm and the new ski lodge will be open until January 6, 2020.

On New Year’s Eve, The Barge is inviting people to reserve a table from 8pm with a welcome cocktail on arrival, table service drinks, nibbles all night and a glass of fizz at midnight.

Tickets cost £20 per person for the New Year’s Eve event. Book by sending an email to [email protected].

Entry is free for The Barge at all other times.
