Depending on how often you visit Queens Square in central Bristol, you may have noticed the arrival of what looks like a small Tipi village. This isn’t the birth of a new Occupy movement but the brief visit of a unique experience in which to enjoy some of the cities finest examples of culinary delights.

This new way of dining is the brainchild of Michelin star chef Josh Eggleton and director of ‘Tipi Events’ Luke Hassel. This new way of dining is called ‘The Chef’s Forum’ and is the combination of top class eateries from across Bristol and the surrounding areas, with a unique and accommodating temporary location. Pretty much, it looks amazing and you’re eating michelin star food... in a tipi! Sounds good.

Each day/night a different restaurant takes control of the kitchen, to bring you their version of high-end dining, whilst throughout the day the tipi is host to a champagne and wine bar which also serves tapas and other snacks.

This event is open for a very limited time, just 12 days  over the May bank holiday(25 April - 7 May), so don’t miss this opportunity. You don’t need a reservation to enjoy the bar or the snack/tapas menu and there will also be musical entertainment from DJ’s and bands throughout the night to keep things moving.

If you want to eat in the restaurant (which is more of a serious affair) you will need to buy a ticket but don't hang around as some have already sold out. You can do that here.
