The Big Chill Bar

Set in a nabe with an acute cool quotient, this watering hole is behind the annual Big Chill Multimedia Festival held during August in the Malvern Hills of Herefordshire. Expect a warm, infectious atmosphere within the warehouse chic of exposed brick and pipes, plus beaten-up leather sofas. Eclectic art, tiles, and sculptures cover the walls; you can sit at long, communal wood tables with a passion fruit martini, order snacks (tapas, burgers, salads), or groove to dance sounds from top DJ’s. Pretentiously hip East London attitude doesn’t live here; stress-free happiness does.

Insider Tip: Chill and swill in the courtyard garden during the summer.
