Bristol's 4 best late night bars

The witching hour; the liminal time where the logic of the day is upended, night supersedes sense and Bristol comes alive. Outside the warmly lit bars of Bristol, the early casualties wander, stagger and trip along the cobbles. Kebabs are dropped, shrieks are thrown into the air, and taxis linger looking for another fare.

It's time to come across that holy portent: the neon flashing 'open' sign. Step on in, get yourself a bar-side stool and a strong drink with which to ready yourself against the stark crawl of morning.

Here are some of Bristol's best late-night bars.

How to hire a late-night bar in Bristol

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect late-night bar. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in Bristol.

Frequently asked questions

For late-night bars in Bristol, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

The London Cocktail Club – You're in a world of your own at this Bristol bar. Be sure to choose one of their specialist cocktails or stop by for an evening cocktail masterclass.

Revolución de Cuba – For tapas and other Latin-inspired food and drinks, this popular Bristol bar is definitely one to head to in the later hours of the night.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a late-night bar or a private space in a late-night bar. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Bristol late-night bar. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best late-night bars in Bristol and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
