The 14-bedroom boutique near Bournemouth will open Bar 13 on November 13, with a special launch evening that will see new resident DJ Dan Sterry take to the decks, plus acoustic performances from local musician Kev Jackson.

The new bar will play host to monthly live acoustic music, DJs and cocktail evenings, as well as regular cocktail masterclasses run by the hotel’s mixologist Robert Haidau, which will be new for next year.

Bar 13 will also be available for guests to hire for private functions and parties and will add to the boutique’s reputation.

Owner Andrew Gosling commented: “We have been hosting non-resident events regularly in our bar with great success so we’ve taken the opportunity to develop customer feedback along with the teams enthusiasm to develop Bar 13.

"The concept is to create a modern chilled environment for guests, both residential and non-residential to enjoy exciting new cocktails, sharing food and ‘Friday Night Specials with live music.”
