About us

Located in the centre of the beautiful regency spa town of Cheltenham, AquaVitae is contemporary, privately-owned Champagne and cocktail bar; the ideal place to host a party, enjoy drinks after work or dance the night away to live music. Our well-stocked main bar area features modern decor, relaxed surroundings and both indoor and outdoor seating areas.

With an internal staircase leading down to our sister venue, The World Famous 21 Club, AquaVitae is the perfect place to start your Friday and Saturday night before heading downstairs to dance the night away to the sound of our house DJs, playing the latest hits and dance floor classics.

Our innovative cocktail menu experiments with seasonal flavours and puts a twist on classic favourites. Visit our Facebook page for details of our latest drinks offers and unique events featuring hand-crafted, custom cocktail menus.

Live Music & Events

AquaVitae and The 21 Club are synonymous with horse racing. We are known as the place to be after a day at Cheltenham Racecourse. Whether you’re enjoying your winnings or drowning your sorrows, you’re guaranteed a great night no matter how your luck has been! With a growing reputation for live music in the area, we regularly feature the best up-and-coming talent and established artists on our stage. Check out the Events section to see what’s coming up.

The bar area of AquaVitae features a state-of-the-art big screen projector TV, so whether it’s the Six Nations, World Cup or Royal Ascot, you’re guaranteed a great view of the action. We like to call it The Club House at The 21 Club and the highest standards of etiquette apply.
