Boscombe’s Countdown to Christmas

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Boscombe's Countdown to Christmas!

Join in with Boscombe’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’ on Saturday December 1st 2012, courtesy of our friends at the Coastal BID (

Head down to the Sovereign Shopping Centre where from 10am – 4pm, you’ll be able to keep the kids entertained with face painting and a host of children’s entertainers. Prepare to be amazed by magic tricks and balloon modelling too! Between 2pm – 4pm the adults will also be treated to some timeless classics from the 50s and 60s.

The Precinct comes fully alive in the afternoon as a series of entertainers will take to the stage (2pm – 5pm), offering jazz, storytelling, dance displays, a Punch and Judy show, juggling elves and angels on stilts!

As the natural light begins to fade, make your way to Boscombe seafront for a display from ‘FLAME’ the amazing flame thrower, before heading to see our little sister Urban Reef! Cosy up on the Reef deck, grab a blanket and tuck into a hog roast, sup on a glass of mulled wine and enjoy some fantastic live music from the ‘Luke Adams band’ (5.30pm) who will be playing on the balcony out towards the sea – dance and sing along to a host of modern covers and some Christmassy tunes.

And to end your day grab a glow stick and join in with the countdown to the grand finale – the fireworks at around 6.15pm. If you’ve done all of that, you’ll be truly ready to welcome in the festive season in style.

Love the Urban Beach crew. Xx

Urban Reef’s autumn offers!

Friday, October 19th, 2012

All cosy at the Urban Reef

Autumn is now upon us and we have a couple of great offers and ideas that we wanted to share with you from our little sister Urban Reef!

If you’re staying with us and would like to make the most of any of these just let us know and we’ll reserve a table for you.

Two For One Mains – Every Wednesday night

All you need to do is book for a meal with Urban Reef on a Wednesday evening anytime from 6pm and you’ll get two for one on main courses. Anything you like from the ‘à la Carte’ menu or the specials board. Cheapest main free – pretty obviously ;-)

Urban Reef Wine Club – ‘Bring your own’ every Thursday*

Many of you probably have a great bottle of wine sat at home which you’ve been waiting for a special occasion to crack it open. Well team up with the Urban Reef crew! They’ll make the food and you bring the wine. No corkage charge and they’ll open it for you, supply the glasses, pour the wine and will even do the washing up! They might ask you for a little taste so they can suggest a great dish to accompany your food – but heh, it’s all about working together right!

So get that Châteauneuf-du-Pape off the shelf, give it a dust off and bring it down. They’ll get a pici of you with your bottle to go on the Urban Facebook page, so everyone starts talking about it.

*A tiny little bit of small print: The wine club only applies to the Urban Reef restaurant when you have a meal over lunch or dinner. Only applies to wine, no bringing your own bottle of Vodka and a straw ;) Just one bottle of wine per two people – come as a table of four and bring two bottles, no problem!

A little extra for a Thursday night!

If you’re making the most of the wine club on a Thursday evening, you can enjoy a little something extra too! At 7pm and 10pm we’ll be offering a shuttle service from Urban Beach to the Urban Reef and back again – we don’t want you to ruin your hair ;-) – all you need to do is let us know if you want to make the most of this offer and we’ll get it sorted for you. It’ll be a shuttle taxi going back and forth at those specific times, so please bear with us if you have to wait a couple of minutes on a busy evening. Saves paying for car park!

So there you have it. A few little gems for this autumn and they’ll be running throughout October and November 2012.

Live Music Sunday!

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Come in from the cold this coming Sunday evening (November 27th) and visit our little sister, The Urban Reef Restaurant! Snuggle up next to their log burning fire or in one of their squishy booths and tuck into ‘three courses’ (and a cocktail!) all for £20. You’ll also be able to listen to some soulful songs from resident musician, Jon Cotton. The perfect way to end the month!

To book give the guys a call on: 01202 443960 and if you want to get your taste buds watering, take a look at their sample menu under the ‘menus’ tab via:

And if you fancy having a go at making this month’s ‘Sunday night live’ cocktail at home, then have a little look at this recipe…

Urban Rose

How to make an ‘Urban Rose’ – traditionally known as a ‘Rose Gimlet’ -


50ml gin

15ml rose syrup

2-3 dashes angostura bitters

A dash of lime juice

Pour all of your ingredients into a Boston Shaker (the silver thing that us bar folk use to shake cocktails). Stir in some cubes of ice and strain (using a drink strainer which looks like a little sieve) into a martini glass. To finish it off, we think it looks nice to add a coil of lemon, as pictured ;)

The Urban Reef 2011 Air Show menu

Join the Reef crew on the seafront from Thursday August 18th – Sunday August 21st and you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious local and seasonal two or three course lunch in the restaurant for a set price of £19 and £25.

All you need to do is give the guys a call on: 01202 443960 and they’ll be sure to save you a seat. If you want more details on the menu just drop an email to:

The weather is looking much brighter and sunnier than last year so we hope you take some time out to enjoy some great Urban Reef love. Xx
