In the belly of The Lost Ones Contemporary Art Gallery you can find a welcoming cave of whisky, wine, cake and conversation. Originally the Masonic Temple's dining hall for the masons, The Lost Ones Basement Bar is deliberately hard to find, but once you've found us there's no forgetting.

Open Wednesday to Saturday, 11am through to 11pm. Sunday 11am till 7pm.
