A bar with a story

V Bar has a rich history as one of Colchester’s finest apothecaries. For decades, the people of Colchester came to A. Weddell’s chemist’s shop at 105 High Street for all the lotions, potions and medicines they needed.

The building was given a new lease of life in 2002 when it became V Bar, the second member of the Pasini Leisure family. Today, in its new form, it remains somewhere where the people of Colchester and beyond can get together for a laugh, a dance and a pick-me-up that’s exactly what the doctor ordered!
