"We have plenty of pubs and nightclubs."
"There are loads of pubs and clubs in close proximity, which is nice."
"There are many clubs in my area as well as lots of pubs (covering a wide range) so the nightlife is amazing in Bristol. There are many things to do such as joining society events, visiting galleries and going shopping. There is always a lot to do."
"We have quite a good range of clubs at relatively good prices and there are lots of pubs. There's not much in the way of live music venues and no place for big acts to perform in Bristol."
"There are big clubs that bring world-class DJs from all over the world, such as Motion. There are also great pubs that turn into clubs and have great DJs as well such as Love Inn and Crofters Rights. There is a great amount of pubs and bars for drinking in and quirky places too including a pub with loads of cats living there."
"There are lots of pubs and bars around Bristol. Park Street is very student orientated so there are lots of student offers around. My favourite cocktail places are Aluna and Flipside. In terms of going out, there is the world-famous Motion as well as Lakota and lots of other cool places in Stokes Croft. No two nights are the same in Bristol and there is something for everyone. Also, a lot of day or weekend festivals take place close to Bristol."


"The usual nightclubs and pubs. There is an O2 arena where there are some pretty good gigs sometimes."
"There's a bit of everything, which makes up for the lack of a decent SU nightlife."

"There are plenty of clubs and bars around the university and further out. Bristol prides itself on having an incredible number of independent establishments so there really are places to suit everyone."
"Great variety of clubs whether you want cheesy or a bit more cool."
"Shops, cinema, bowling, museums, restaurants, cafes, laser tag and zoo. The list is endless. It's a large city so there is loads to do."
