  The Cheese Crawl Bristol

@ The Mall Gardens on Every Saturday

Craving something a little different in Bristol? Join The Cheese Crawl for a unique tour of the city. You'll stroll through the charming Clifton village and down to the wharf, with a selection of the best cheesy treats in town, with a refreshing glass of cider to roundoff your experience.

Bristol's bar scene is full of interesting and fun bars, but none are quite as different as The Apple. An old dutch barge has been converted into one of the city's most popular watering holes which serves a massive selection of cider.

An oldie on the alternative night out scene in Bristol, Thekla is a rowdy club on a converted cargo ship. Head to the Mud Dock Area for pop club nights out and clothes markets over weekends.

Steak of the Art is not your average night out in Bristol as it combines amazing art work with world-class steaks. Located on Cathedral Walk, the spot has amazing interiors, including suspended paintpots pouring paint and an illuminated bar.

Red Light

Raucous, debauched and seriously sexy, Red Light has cool and quirky Bristol bar stamped all over it. The secret den serves up luscious libations, hosts fun party nights and has some of Bristol's naughtiest decor.
