H Bar Bistro
Iconic building reaches highest hygienic standards

 H Bar Bistro
RBJ is helping food entrepreneur Humberto Banks achieve the highest possible hygienic standards to diners grabbing a pre or post-concert bite at his acclaimed H Bar Bistro within the new foyer of Bristol’s Colston Hall. The new bistro has already established itself as a premier place to eat since its launch at the end of last year and is winning great reviews from the local food media for eating out in Bristol.

Local Premier installers Rudge Brothers and James supplied and fitted Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding for the kitchens at Colston Hall as part of a £20 million refurbishment to create a brand new foyer for the iconic venue. Funded by Bristol City Council and Arts Council England, the ambitious project is designed to offer stateof-the-art facilities suitable for 21st century concert-goers, including new meeting spaces, bars, restaurants and improved disabled access.

Humberto Benevenuto, proprietor of H Bar Bistro, said: “Over its history, Colston Hall has maintained a reputation for uncompromising quality, playing host to musical legends such as The Beatles, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.

Our kitchen prepares cuisine for both visiting artists as well as discerning patrons, so I expect the highest standards. Altro Whiterock helps me to ensure food is prepared and cooked in a safe and clean environment, which is extremely important to me and my cliental.”

Jim Heal from Rudge Brosthers & James, commented: “We installed Altro Whiterock in the catering facilities at the Arnolfini arts centre in Bristol some four years ago, so had no doubt it would be ideal for the kitchens at Colston Hall as well. Whiterock hygienic wall cladding is perfect for food preparation areas, where protecting against contamination and bacteria is paramount. The bright white PVC makes a kitchen bright and a plesant place to work in.”
