Quiet Nights

You don’t have to drink to have a good time. While Bristol may be known for its nightlife, it’s not all that it has to offer. Check out our recommendations for a quiet evening out in Bristol.

Bristol has a great selection of entertainment bars and pubs. Notably, gameboard cafés and gaming pubs. Check out Chance and Counters or Playground Coffee and Bar for a cosy games night, or head to Kong’s on Kings street for some retro video games. If you like the club scene and a chance to smash your friends on the dance mat, you may want to swing by NQ64 for some music and classic video games.

If you’re more the active sort, Bristol has some great ways to get moving late into the evening. Check out BUMP, the roller disco rink in Redcliffe Wharf for a lively night out. There’s also plenty of bowling and entertainment places including, but not limited to, Lane 7, Roxy Lanes and The Lanes, all within walking distance of the centre. Why not get a group of friends together for a darts match or pool tournament?

But, if all you need is a dark room and something to watch, Bristol has you covered. With cinemas like the Everyman and the Watershed playing movies old and new, and live entertainment bars hosting comedy to magic nights (check out The White Bear and Smoke and Mirrors), you couldn’t possibly be get bored. Remember that theatres like the Hippodrome, Tobacco Factory and Bristol Improv Theatre are always showing something and have a good range of value seats for shows.

Alternatively, we have some recommendations from your follow students (and your student comms team) for a spook-tacular movie night in. Get your popcorn and snuggle in for a scary movie marathon this Halloween.
