This site has been set up as a tribute to an amazing restaurant and live music venue that is sadly no more… The Bee’s Knees. This place certainly lived up to it’s name as I’m sure many people who find themselves visiting this site will remember.
Whatever time of day you visited, there was always great atmosphere at The Bee’s Knees. It was cool, calm and collected at breakfast time, relaxed during the afternoon, and lively in the evening. It really offered everything. You could sit with your laptop and catch up with some work, while enjoying a plate of nachos and a coffee at lunchtime. No one would bother you, you wouldn’t feel as if you were in anyone’s way. Or you could visit with friends, play a game perhaps, have a few drinks, take it easy. On a night, well there always something going on. Just about every night there was live music playing. You could basically turn up any night (except for Mondays when it was closed) and be guaranteed a brilliant time with a warm friendly welcome from staff and regulars alike. It was the perfect place to make friends.
The food was fantastic too, especially the awesome breakfasts which were served from 6.30am during the week. They tried to source all their produce locally, so it was always so fresh and tasty. They also had lots of choice for vegans which is unusual for a restaurant that wasn’t specifically targetted at vegans. I guess The Bee’s Knees just wanted to make everyone happy. As a vegan, you’re usually very limited to what you can have in a restaurant. In some cases there is literally nothing to have at all, but not so with The Bee’s Knees. Whether it was for breakfast, lunch or supper, vegans, as well as vegetarians and meat eaters, were spoilt for choice.
