Here is a list of a few great student nights in Bristol.

This water-bound club has been a student favourite for a very long time, and it has some great club nights, from Thekla Thursdays to their Pop Confessionals. The Pop Confessional nights, in particular, are very well-liked and are advertised as playing ‘guilty pleasure’ pop jams on Saturday nights. So, if you are a diehard pop fan, or want to relive some of those year six school disco memories, Thekla’s Pop Confessional nights are well worth attending.

2. OMG – Poundemonium

OMG is Bristol’s largest lesbian and gay club venue, and every Wednesday and Thursday the club hosts their Poundemonium nights. Who could say no to drinks for only one pound? You could also head down on a Tuesday for their student night Candyshop, which is free entry. The venue itself is awesome and guarantees an electric night out.

3. Lizard Lounge – Impulse Fridays

Lounge has quickly become a student staple of the Bristol club scene, and the venue holds many different student club nights throughout the week. Impulse Fridays, though, are very popular and have a great atmosphere to them, so why not skate straight from your last lectures of the week to Lounge?

4. Lola Lo – Killa Disco

For those who enjoy a tropical aesthetic, with its tiki décor and floral undertones, Lola Los is a perfect location for a perfect night out. Every Thursday, the club throws its Killa Disco night, complete with some hard-to-beat drink discounts and giveaways. The music is pretty great as well, with the resident DJ working all night.

5. Gravity – BED

BED Mondays are another student staple on the long list of club nights which usually happen weekly in Bristol. The club itself certainly provides an exciting and unique night, complete with a ball pit and fried chicken served until the early hours of the morning. With £5 entry and drink offers, BED Mondays are hard to resist!

6. The Fleece – Propaganda

For any rock and indie fans, going to the Fleece on Saturday nights is a brilliant idea, as this is when the venue hosts Propaganda. During Propaganda, you are free to party until 4 am, and entry is discounted for students until 12am. The deals on drinks are pretty decent, but the real pull factor of The Fleece on Propaganda night is the quality of the music.

7. The Lanes – Fat Lip

Fat Lip is another Saturday club night and usually happens monthly at The Lanes. Music ranges from classic party to alternative indie, and the venue has its own outdoor terrace for added ambience.
