“Roots & Co will fit the bill no matter how you’re feeling…”

Bournemouth’s reputation as the home of south coast hospitality will be further enhanced with the opening of Roots & Co, a brand new blend of British blues, brews, beats and bites.

Everything about Roots & Co is driven by the ‘Retox-Detox-Repeat’ philosophy, from the fresh herbs and festoon foliage on its walls to the mocktails and craft beers at the bar and a music policy that puts a Brit-twist on classic blues, jazz, soul, R&B and retro DJs.

“Roots & Co will fit the bill no matter how you’re feeling – we’ve got the best wines, beers and spirits if you’re good to go, or marvellous mocktails and sensational smoothies if you’d rather take it easy,” says Marianne Brown of M2 Events.

“And on Roots & Co Eats menu is a mind blowing selection of British tapas, where possible prepared with organic, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients.

“As well as taking a creative approach to bar classics with our signature meat skewer and Yorkshire pud dip pots, our cooks are doing amazing things with super foods and healthy options that mean nobody has to compromise on taste.”

Roots & Co opens in Post Office Road on Friday 9 November to give Bournemouth’s winers and diners their first taste of its new concept in beats and eats with statement features including a vertical wall garden, copper bar and bird cage lights.

“We’re bringing the outside ‘inn’, creating a place where busy people can sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere,” says Marianne. “Of course as the night rolls in our dedicated performance stage and dance floor come into their own so there’s plenty of room to cut loose, zip up your boots and get back to your roots!”

The drinks list features an eclectic selection of local craft beers, artisan wines and inspiring spirits as well as some highly original tastes such as Beetroot Bellini, Rhubarb and Ginger Sour and the detox-tastic Coconut Water & Lemongrass Mojito.

“Bournemouth is in for a real treat,” adds Marianne. “Roots & Co is a wake up call to the senses, a chance to come out and make the most of the forthcoming party season whether you’re feeling naughty or nice.”
