New stretch target

We’ll get straight to the point - the first one of these for us. It’s actually really not our thing, but... well, it comes down to priorities. These have shifted radically for all of us over the last few weeks, though initially just in terms of toilet roll consumption.


We’re not gonna get into the political rally of whether or not our government has supported us adequately; the fact is we ended up with more than we expected. Being able to furlough the team has increased our chances of weathering this storm from ‘who are we kidding’, to ‘well that’s just crazy enough to work, maybe’.


So we’re lowering our eyes and asking for your help – we’ve now got a chance of making it through all this, and we’d really like to. For one, dunno about you, but we don’t wanna see all the good independent bars fade from Bristol’s scene – they’re part of why we moved here!


And more importantly, when this storm passes, all the hospitality staff are understandably gonna try to get back to work... and there cannot be as many jobs. There just can’t. When our team came to work with us, they became our responsibility, and that means we have to do everything to ensure we’ve still got jobs for them in a few weeks’ time.


These people are the best in their industry, both in terms of professional aptitude, and personal integrity, the very thing for which they were hired. And, in their choice to join our crew, they’re now in real danger.


So, for the first time ever, we’re calling on your help, because, shameful as it is to say, in present circumstances, we don’t have the complete confidence that we can financially care for our team.


If you’re ever been to HMSS or Filthy XIII and had a great time, it’s because of them. While we’re all financially pressed now, if you can spare anything, it will hopefully help us in lasting through this dire time and keep us taking care of them.

Drinks token

Poker chips make great gifts – ours are all kinds of sexy and act as a drinks token; grab one and when you pop by – all Bogart style – and throw it on the bar, we’ll exchange it with a nod that makes everyone whisper ‘baller’. One Poker chip can be exchanged for any cocktail, at any time.
