Vivo opened on 30th May 2013 in the stunning Brewery Square development in the thriving heart of Dorchester. Vivo boasts a sun-trap terrace to the front with a floor consisting of bricks from the previous building. History bricks – Brunel.
With just over 140 internal covers and a huge 60 covers externally, as well as a cosy 'snug' area available for private hire, she’s a big ‘un alright!
Our Lounge is a home from home, offering delicious food and drinks, all day, on your doorstep. We exist to bring people together and our unique atmosphere changes hour by hour with each new wave of customers. We are proud of our Lounge and its community and our aim is simple: every customer leaves happy.
If you’d like to have a closer look at our food and drinks range, see our menus – we even have our very own gluten free and vegan menu. We have board games for big and small guests, toys for the really wee ones, and even refreshment for our canine guests. Old or young, big or small – just pop along and we’ll look after you!
Situated in the former Eldridge Pope Brewery, which officially opened in 1881 and was at one stage the largest employer in Dorchester, Vivo is located in the Bonded Store where the beer was readied for distribution. Now you can sit back, enjoy a nice relaxing drink and while away the hours in this stunning Grade II listed building.
