Live Music and Fine Food at City Bowl Market on Hope Street Smashing

Live music, tasty nibbles and good wine – the City Bowl Market on Hope is the ideal venue for a chilled Thursday evening.

If you haven’t yet been to the City Bowl Market on Hope, add it to your market meander. This weekly food fair happens on Thursday evenings and is a veritable feast of homemade grub, craft beer and good wine.

The Wine Market is what grabbed our attention… largely because wine-tasting in the city centre is always fun, plus the market’s two wine traders offer organic wines (read: no hangover!). For a small price, you can acquire a tasting glass with nine tastings from the participating vendors, after which you get a free glass of wine of your choice.

Live music performances take place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm, adding to the vibrant atmosphere and providing exciting local talent with an opportunity to shine.

Stand-out traders include:

  • Ramen Noodles, Hummus falafel, Delicious African dishes and Italian food
  • Empanadas mini pies
  • Davy Croquettes, offering homemade tapas style croquettes
  • La Petite Moo Brownies
  • Beer on Tap
