A creative culinary hub designed to make you feel right at home, Bocabar Paintworks is where new connections are made, great times are had and unexpected nights out begin.

Anyone who's been to the Paintworks will know that it's a huge space, renowned for its sweeping hallways and urban charm. Bocabar has made good use of the Paintworks' features by creating different spaces. One such space is comfortable and communal filled with engulfing sofas and loungy armchairs whilst another is designed like a family home with dining tables and quaint lamps and wallpaper. The bar, however, is where the party starts; a major centrepiece with tables all around, it's hard not to get caught up in the hubbub!

And what goes best with such a comfortable, easy-going vibe? Why, pizzas of course, and Bocabar are bringing out lesser-known Italian classics, such as the Amazonia with black olives and spinach, the Cogumelo with gorgonzola, pinenuts and a spicy undertone, and Galinova with Somerset brie. Unlike most pizza menus, you can also order your base as gluten free or vegan!

Aside from gorgeous pizzas, you also have nutritious salads bursting with protein-rich ingredients and fresh vegetables. The Lunch specials and deli counter is also very tempting. However, don't be surprised if you undo all your hard-fought discipline with their signature KnickerBOCAglory made all the more tempting with chocolate brownie bites, fruit coulis and a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce. Well, when in Boca...
