Housed in a bright blue box, the Brig has recently been given a makeover. The results, while stylish, are still casual: the dress code is relaxed and the atmosphere is not aggressively trendy. The pool table is still there but now it’s surrounded by white leather benches and long, communal metal-topped tables. The place has been given a bright, brash look with an illuminated ceiling and bold orange walls. The music has improved too and a DJ plays a smooth soundtrack of electronica and laid back beats conducive to cocktail-fuelled chatter and the odd game of pool (if you’re lucky enough to snag a spot on the lone table), maybe even to dancing as the night wears on. The bathrooms, with their chandeliers, are also worth a look.
