Top 10 Nightlife in Bristol, England

October 21, 2021 Jacquiline Darosa

Bristol is a quirky British city with beautiful hilly vistas and plenty of historic sights to explore. Anyone interested in ships will have a blast aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain, the world’s first great oceanliner, and the Matthew, a replica of the ship upon which John Cabot sailed to America in the 15th century. The graceful Clifton Suspension Bridge is another must-see.

Brozen Bar

A speciality cocktail bar situated in the heart of the city. Come and try our delicious frozen cocktails and alcoholic ice creams made in front of your eyes. Brozen Bar offers a new way to try the classics and there's no better combination than ice cream and cocktails! Why not try the best of both worlds?

Originally booked a masterclass for May, but obviously had to reschedule. Will hosted our cocktail masterclass and was honestly amazing!! We found the class so fascinating. It's not your standard cocktail making class, you don't just go in a shake some drinks. Will taught us the ins and out of how brozen make all their ingredients from scratch and explained the science behind how they make their amazing drinks. The thought behind each brozen cocktail is honestly mind blowing. The 3 brozen dessert cocktails were INSANE. I could eat the coffee one all day everyday. It was so good I want to book the exact same class again ????

Crying Wolf

We believe in making things by hand, and with love. Our food, cocktails and other drinks focus on fresh and local ingredients and suppliers, particularly independents from Bristol and its surrounding hills. All our juices are fresh-pressed to order, our syrups, shrubs and cordials are all made on site, and our bar food selection is sourced from the West Country's finest producers.

After extensive research, I can report that this classy bar is the best in Bristol. The staff are super fun, and the team of star mixologists wow me every time. Whether it is from their 'on menu' list of home-grown creations, or from their extensive knowledge and flawless execution of which ever 'classic' cocktail I put to them (try their Last Word!), they are the real deal. Great atmospherics thanks to the decor that manages to be artful yet unpretentious - Crying Wolf is the perfect beginning, middle, or end (or all three, they do great food!) to a great date night. Enjoy!

What a pub! Just what you’re looking for when craving a lovely ale, glass of wine or even gin and fever tree tonic for an unbelievable price. Fabulous music and chilled out vibe. Yes lots of other good pubs in Clifton but this has the edge. Well worth a visit.

Came across this bar in Clifton last weekend. We saw 3 different bands there - all very good. The bar sells a good selection of wines and ales and the staff/owners were particularly friendly and helpful. A great little independent bar. Do give it your support.
