'A very fine time can be had at Bristol’s big clubs, such as Motion or Lakota, but there’s a place in Stokes Croft (the “arty bit” of Bristol) that I’d also heartily recommend for a slightly different nightlife experience. It’s two buildings, separated by a shisha bar courtyard: the Full Moon Pub and Attic Bar seems to bring a little bit of that coveted festival vibe to nearly every weekend. Generally, it has a more eclectic or roots-orientated music policy but it constantly showcases a variety of homegrown talent. It also hosts a select amount of drum'n'bass nights featuring AFT Records and Ruffneck Ting showcases. We had so much fun at the last one with d'n'b lovers and enthusiastic party people rocking the venue. But whether d'n'b maestros such as Jinx and Saxxon are on the bill or live bands such as Dr Meaker, Laid Blak or Musical Youth, all nights here seem to maintain the friendly vibe. There’s a great sound system and in the summer the spacious courtyard becomes a venue in its own right. Door prices are low (or free) and drinks are served in proper glasses. The only downside could be the 2am license … but then there’s always those super clubs to continue on to – or crash out at the onsite backpacker accommodation if you’re ready to call it a night!'
