Live Music






Live music is a regular event, with many genres featured. If you have any ideas for live music or are interested in performing please contact us. Over the summertime our live music on a Saturday night unfortionatly can no longer be a weekly event due to consideration of noise to the neighbours! Occasional specials though so make sure keep an eye out for those! Our Back Door Blues Jam on Monday and The Bristol Jazz Society on a Tuesday will continue throughout the summer.
