THE Air Festival Beach Bar next to Bournemouth Pier opened this weekend.

Beachgoers were enjoying the sunshine while sipping drinks at the large outdoor bar. The venue will be open daily throughout the air festival, serving a range of cocktails, beer, wine and Prosecco to guests directly on the beach while they enjoy the vibe with a resident DJ.

A spokesman said: "For the Bournemouth Air Festival weekend the music will kick up a gear to compliment the musical performances on the main stage, with Motown and 80's themes.

"Local street food traders, operating in custom beach shacks, will also be offering loaded fries, beach burgers and frozen yoghurt for guests to enjoy. The Beach Bar is a great place to come and enjoy the views with friends whilst sampling some of the finest local food and refreshing drinks."

Entry is £5 which includes a complimentary drink.

The Beach Bar opens from 11am each day until Sunday, September 2.
