Jonathan Wilde left this review about BAILA Bar

After a recent crawl in Swindon I stumbled on this place just before returning to my B&B at The Regent just down the road.

From the outside the signage implies a coffee and vinyl store but it was clearly a bar as their website implies.

Not sure if the night of my visit was a launch party for the bar itself or some other coincidental launch party for a T shirt brand essentially, going off the flyer that made its way into my back pocket.

It has one draught offering which was, Pistonhead. Described as "Brewed in Sweden. Pistonhead is a killer beer with a rock and roll attitude." I didn't leave feeling like Elvis or a Gallagher brother...

Essentially it's more than just another coffee, bar combo as every Friday there are live DJ's and one was present on my visit.

Not sure what it's like any other time and as from the picture it is a small narrow retail unit adjoining the conservatory to the pub next door with some tables and chairs and a bar on the right towards the back.

Overall a pleasant evening and is probably popular with the young hipsters if they exist in Swindon.
