Hotspot Fire Engine Bar

The Hotspot Fire Engine Bar is an original 1960s Bedford TK Fire Engine that has been converted into a unique, private, state of the art cocktail bar in County Durham. Please note, the Hotspot Bar is an outdoor bar so our Friday Live Music Events are subject to the weather. If the weather effects the event going ahead, it will be moved into our indoor main bar area.
