Boasting pale bamboo trunks and Pacific Island heads, Lola Lo brings a touch of the tropical to Bristol. Make a beeline for the bar and start your night with one of their fruity concoctions before taking to the dancefloor where DJs are waiting with non-stop party hits to keep you going till the early morning.

An award-winning UK club, Motion is undoubtedly one of the best places for an epic night out in Bristol. Spaced across a number of warehouses, the mega venue features state-of-the-art technology and has seen the likes of Just Jack and Fatboy Slim grace its decks. 

A heavyweight on the underground music scene, Blue Mountain Club is no-brainer for those of you looking to rave into the early hours to hardcore techno, bass and trance music. Come the summer months, the Stokes Croft hotspot takes the party outside to their large outdoor terrace.

A combination of drag queens, cheap drinks and an LED dancefloor are all in store for you at OMG Club. Whether you're there for their Wednesday student night or a weekend blowout, you're in for a memorable experience that'll have you coming back for more.

A raucous underground playground, Cosies! embodies the saying: good things come in small packages. A popular club amongst students, this lively Portland Square spot plays the best in reggae and dub, as well as welcoming in a regular line-up of DJs.
