Old Hat Bar and Bistro is just a stones throw away from Southend Central rail station and the seafront. They provide a wealth of homemade meals using locally-sourced produce where possible throughout the menu, which includes a constantly revolving specials menu. Live music is a big plus at the typically-retro venue with up-and-coming acts from around the country performing plus live jazz, and blues musicians playing every Sunday. Guests can also soak up the atmosphere in the courtyard garden with local artists works' adorning the walls all year round.
