Where to go for nightlife and culture in Bristol?

Posted on
  • Recently moved to Worcestershire and craving some city life, especially visual arts, culture, gigs, bars and clubs for occasional jaunts/late nights/early mornings. Too sleepy here and still struggling to make friends/meet like-minded people.

    Bristol's only an hour away yet I don't know it at all so can anyone make any recommendations on venues/pubs/bars to follow and keep an eye out for last-minute weekend trips and nights out? And possibly where to avoid?

  • Depends on what you like, The Trinity and Lost Horizon have interesting events.



  • https://www.headfirstbristol.co.uk/#gigsĀ­-and-live-music is probably the best place to find out what's going on.

    Can recommend Thekla, St George's, the Louisiana, Old Market Exchange, Jam Jar, Strange Brew, quite a few nice venues about. There are a few 'specialist' venues (like the Gryphon being a metal-leaning pub) but the music scene here is quite interconnected and supportive of each other regardless of genre, and most venues will put on something you like eventually

  • Fab - thanks both. Bit of a mix in terms of what I like - everything from sludge metal and pysch through to jazz or even proper d'n'b/club night. Will take a look at those places to start!
