Friendly to students, music matches theme of night and much better value for money than most other local clubs

Really unique club - an old fishing trauler that has been converted into a club. The main dance area is where the engine room used to be so is very large, and has a walkway around the top of it. Smoking area is the front deck of the boat - on which they've placed barrel themed tables to give it a more piratey feel. Drinks are always fairly cheap with Jagaers around £2. Entry is never more than £5 before midnight on Friday / sat. Really friendly for students and great value for money overall. Have very rarely had a bad night there. Fairly decent central location too.

The venue is great for a good night out. The venue itself is different (on a boat!) and they do 241 drinks on a Thursday (ummmm yes plz). They usually play a good mix of music but mainly alternative rock and pop. Really good place for students, a very young vibe!

something really different and fun, some of the drinks can be a little expensive but the atmosphere far outweighs this negative. Always have a good night and the nights are certainly varied; from 'Donuts' to Appreciation nights this venue never gets boring. Tickets/admission usually pretty cheap.

Every time I have been to Thekla I have enjoyed a great night out with my mates. The music is amazing, especially on Thursdays where they play punk and indie music. Make sure you stay on the top floor for this night. Another great night is Saturday night where they play all your favourite cheesy music from the 90s and 00s so you're guaranteed to have a great night.

Never had an issue with any members of staff, they are all welcoming and friendly. Also stands apart from any other club in Bristol due to its venue and music. Always has good value tickets.

Best alternative night out in Bristol. Thekla Thursday 2-4-1 drinks never fails to be a great night night- cheap drinks, great music on both decks and you're on a freaking boat!! Make sure to get there before 11 though or you'll be queuing for some time.

The venue and location is lowkey quite sick. Pretty popular night out for a Thursday, only real place to go on that night tbh. However the main let down is the music. It's all indie-rock so it's pretty horrific to listen to. Would only recommend going if you like indie rock. If you do, you'll love it

Pressure at Thekla on a Thursday is by far my favourite consistent night out in Bristol. 2-4-1 drinks, banging pop-punk, indie and alternative tunes, great atmosphere.

Really great venue particularly for students. Love Thekla thursday's, the great drinks deals and sick tunes! All staff are always friendly and the bouncers are sound.

Great venue, really unique being on a boat and always feels big enough. It's not one of those places where they let in far too many people. I've had good experiences there clubbing and seeing live music. Nice bar staff and reasonable drinks prices. Only thing that could be improved up in cleanliness and general upkeep if the premises. Other than that a really great night!

Thekla , other than being a boat, is completely different from other clubs. The variety and music and overall vibe makes the night . Aswell as having a range of setting in the central area and away in the quiet, the large venue provides enough room for the night to be insane. Cheap drinks anyone?

Thursday nights are brilliant, drinks a bit pricey but still a great night out! Can't talk about other evenings as never been. Music is good and so is the atmosphere

Thekla is hands down the best club in the city. Small venue on a boat with two floors. Go on a Thursday for the student night, with two for one drinks and indie tunes, everyone there is lovely. Or Saturday for Pop Comfessional! Also has a funky photo booth.

Thekla Thursdays will always been the best night out in Bristol ! Hands down. The music, the people and the atmosphere make it an incredible place to be

I love that the club is on the boat , it just feels interesting every time you go! although it does cause constant issues with the toilets. I love thekla thursdays as they play great sing along tunes from childhood and drinks are cheap. I don’t think I ever been thekla on the weekend tho, but they seem to have interesting events and gigs for every taste!

Really good venue with a nice atmosphere and great music, drinks are a reasonable price on student night

Very student friendly during the weekdays, Thekla Thursdays are a big night! And there are regular event nights, my favourites being Carnival, and Bump & Grind. The place consists of mainly locals on the weekends. Drinks aren't too expensive (think there is a 2 for 1 deal sometimes) and entry fees are't extortionate.

Coolest place I’ve ever been, literally so cheap it’s insane and has indi nights on a Thursday so it’s all you’ll want

Good club, provide a completely different atmosphere to others as it’s on a boat making it special. Very friendly towards students but could do with some cheaper student drink deals, as it’s fairly expensive. Music is good as there are many genres played on different nights of the week
