About The Loft
The Loft is a beautiful concept store, set in the heart of Bath, on Bartlett Street Quarter, a haven for independent shops.
It was created in order to provide the City of Bath with a one-stop shop for all things of good quality and good design.
Inside, you'll find a contemporary lifestyle environment, boasting a combination of
Cafe Lucca with its inspired salads and Italian style coffee
and Blue with it's individual women's clothing and eclectic homeware range.
Long term residents will remember this complex as Evans and Owen,
which was a popular Victorian drapers and department store.
Blue is a warm and friendly independent women's clothes shop. It first opened in Cheltenham in June 2000 and three years later in Bath. The unique shopping experience offered by the helpful girls is one of a kind.
Blue offers wonderful, special and unusual clothing and accessory designs, which are hard to find on the high street, for women who are especially adventurous and progressive.
Additionally, Blue Home offers an eclectic mix of furniture, all sourced by the same buyers for Blue Women's Clothing.
Recently BABY BLUE has just been added to the exciting range of products on offer and is beginning to make its first appearance online.
