Important Information on Bristol Bars

  • All bars and club reserve the right to refuse entry for any reason.  If you are too drunk there is a strong possibility you will be turned away or asked to leave.
  • We’ve included a mixture of styles and standards of venues.  We do this as some groups like more ‘lively’ venues where you can have a drink and a dance, while other groups prefer more ‘sophisticated’ venues.  It is up to you to decide what sort of venue will suit your group.
  • Unfortunately we can’t guarantee the standards of any bars.  Ownership changes and venues can have different atmosphere on different nights of the week. This is beyond our control.
  • We have not booked you into any of these venues, unless it’s stated within your itinerary.
  • Some venues are more suitable for larger groups than others.
  • While we try to keep this list of our favourite bars in Bristol updated regularly sadly bars shut down and this is beyond our control.
  • If you have issues at any of these venues please try and resolve this with the venue directly.
