Friday nights are goth/rock/industrial night... unfortunately well known for not being too strict on age checks so gets a large crowd of angst ridden teenagers. Still a good night though.

Really good venue layout and sizewise. Haven't been on a Friday for some time, but hear it's a punk night these days. Look out for Whiplash, a new monthly event though, rock, goth and industrial music across the ages.

I drove 50 miles to get to this club - and I was not disapointed. I've only been once but it is was a great night with a fantastic atmosphere.

I come here on Friday nights when I'm visiting friends in Bristol... You get a free shot of your choice with every pint so it's definitely worth checking out.

Been there, and it was frighteningly like the union bar in kent, only bigger... this is not a good thing, you understand... Far to many 'diddy grungers'... yep... and angst ridden teenagers... and the bouncers would except a crisp packet for ID. Maybe it's good on the nights I've not been there?

Quite like this place. It may not be perfect but at least it's better than the cooler, or worse still, The Academy (ewww, get away from me). Occasionaly way too much crappy punk gets played which is quite annoying. BTW, the bouncers don't appreciate water fights.

Good lil' club. Shame about the odd punk track slipping in here and there. But the atmosphere is excellent, and most of the peeps are really friendly :)

Primarily- FREE SHOTS, dear god it nearly killed me. Good clean fun tho...Go with ppl who don't drink spirits. And annoy the monkey behind the bar. Few unexpected tracks, not too commonly heard, but all the usual cack of an "alternative" club (a dirty word) Too many mini metallers, but meh, what can u do? (CATTLE PROD)x

Recently went here for the first time to see Cauda Pavonis and a few other bands. It's a decently sized, dingy dark venue. Shame the toilets were a bit groggy and bar prices were somewhat high so I heard (I don't drink alcohol).

Been going here on and off in the last few years, and i think it's really gone down hill. There were no stand out tracks, nothing even vaguly goth, or any stand out people. I hope it improves :( *x*

They suddenly decided to I.D everyone who'd been going there years on halloween, but it seemed to only be the people (who weren't normal looking/tarty girls.) I doubt we missed much, it's usually ok, nothing special, but there aren't many alternatives for a friday night!

I just, completely, totally, give up on this place. I know the smarter of you did a long time ago, but i'm not that smart, or in bristol that often (excuses, excuses) But if you're looking for anything even slightly goth, avoid. This is a meat market for emo kids.

Seeing as it`s not really even a goth club you can`t really moan. As for I.D`ing,well,that is due to the police doing more check ups hence everyone who looks under 21 will get the i.d treament.

I would go more but the sound system always gives me a headache. I always have to wait a least 15mins at the bar to buy a drink. Needs more bar staff. The free shots deal sounds good but its evil cheap stuff I would rather have 30p of the price of my beer. Wow im negative today!

Now that Zone is no more this is pretty much the most 'generic' of Bristol's alternative clubs right now. If you like metal/rock/punk then you should like this club.

I go here quite alot, and I used to work here. I have to admit, it's not great and it's full of emo and punk kids now, but now Zone is gone, its the only place I can go to dance :( We need a proper goth or industrial club night in Bristol.

I haven't personally been for many a year but I have friends who go to the gigs (The Birthday Massacre, Emily Autumn) who say its excellent for gig venues. In terms of a club the above comments pretty much apply, this is still Bristol's main weekly alternative club, still on Friday evenings. The DJ (Miss Malice) is a fine DJ and does play some goth music when she can, but this is not a goth club and nor does it advertise itself to be.

Friday nights are PHUCT nights,which play Metal,Alt Metal,Rock,etc.. 9pm-4am.You will get i.d like in any other place,at least you know they are now 18 and over in there.Free shot with every drink brought.But yup,no Goth on friday but fine it you want to headbang and have fun.Halloween is always a good hoot.

Many of Bristol's goths probably 'cut their teeth' at this club so to say. Its for the younger crowd though.
