About

CoCo Torquay is undeniably Torbay’s best and brightest cocktail lounge.

Nestling between the towns famous Abbey Crescent and the Royal terrace gardens, this jewel of a venue stands out as the golden and vibrant place to be! Boasting 3 of the country’s top mixologists as residents on the bar, the cocktail menu consists of well over 100 different drinks to sample as well as an impressive number of premium wines, spirits and champagne. Every cocktail presented at Coco is created with the utmost care and attention making each one a mini work of art in itself.

That’s the CoCo difference!

Clientele who frequent CoCo Torquay know this and flock back time and again to experience not only the skill of the mixologists and the premium drinks, but also the unique and friendly atmosphere of the towns premier cocktail lounge. Looking across the sea from CoCo’s comfortable terrace seating area, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in the med, as the sun sets and the sound of rhythmic Balearic beats play softly in the background. CoCo’s seated terrace area, being heated,means you can enjoy your cocktails watching the lights shimmering over the sea well into the evening, however, if you prefer to venture indoors,you will be greeted with a warm and cheerful ambience where you can sit and relax or watch the spectacle of CoCo’s tireless mixologists preparing copious amounts of beautiful cocktails!

In the summer months, CoCo opens during the afternoon for coffee as well as cocktails and occasionally will have a live DJ playing Mediterranean inspired tunes giving the whole bar an exciting yet laid back feel. These days have proven extremely popular! With unrivalled views across the bay, perfect cocktails, helpful, friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere CoCo is the only place to be in Torquay.

Matt and Klaudia have an astounding reputation for building successful businesses across Torquay.

Beginning  in 2006 when they started running the incredibly popular ‘Premier Cru’ an exclusive wine and cocktail bar in Torquay’s Wellswood village. The couple soon added an award winning bistro to the premises and continued with the accomplished bar and bistro until 2012 when they decided to take on the historic Cary Estates building in Torquay town centre and turn what was a struggling business into a vibrant and exciting new venue part bar, part nightclub. This new venture became Soho!

After 17 months of building Soho into one of Torquay’s favourite night spots, the Forwards decided to sell up and go back to their roots and within 6 months the elegant underground cocktail lounge ‘Prestige’ was opened. Situated amongst great restaurants and close to the towns nightclubs ‘Prestige’ soon became the place to go for fabulous cocktails and tunes provided by live DJs. ‘Prestige’ became a massive success!

In spring 2016 Matt and Klaudia took the decision to sell on the hugely fashionable ‘Prestige’ in order to pursue their dream of a select cocktail bar with a view! After throwing themselves into creating what was a tired looking Victorian building between the famous Abbey crescent and the Royal terrace gardens into a lively, classy and modern looking establishment. The couple’s result was CoCo Torquay!

With unequaled views across the bay, perfect cocktails, friendly and helpful staff, coupled with a warm welcoming ambience, CoCo Torquay has fast acquired the reputation as the place to be seen. Matt and Klaudia continue to be hands on with CoCo, both working tirelessly to ensure all who visit have the best experience. Their passion and love for what they do shines through and CoCo shines too because of their dedication.

Autumn 2016 will see the next level for CoCo with the opening of the first floor lounge ‘CoCo View’ offering uninterrupted views across the bay with its own bar, available for private functions, cocktail masterclasses and more.
