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.

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.

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.

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?

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 is by far one of my favourite nights out in Bristol. It has something for everyone in my friendship group, whether it’s ‘Thekla Thursday’ with many throwback rock songs from your ‘year 10 emo faze’, or Pop Confessionals on a Saturday night with all the best classic pop hits you can sing your heart out to! It’s very student friendly, with reasonably priced drinks and they also often do themed nights which can be a great excuse to get your fancy dress going! (90’s night and Rum Ham “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” night have been my favourite so far! Thekla is always the first place to be suggested when organising a sesh, and let’s not forget the fact that it’s a CLUB ON A BOAT!! how much edgier could Bristol get? -THEKLA IS AWESOME-

Thekla is a perfect venue for a student night out, particularly on a Thursday. It's really cool due to the fact that its the only club in Bristol on a boat and is perfect for those who love indie rock music or throwback music in the upstairs room. Alternatively, they do cool RnB nights most weekends. 2-4-1 drinks on Thursday's make it a really reasonably priced night. They also have lots of gigs with it being a perfect live music venue with a range of acts from lots of different genres coming to perform. It's also not far off the centre so is a perfect location in relation to halls.

Small venue, great outside area. 2 for 1 drinks on a Thursday and the indie music is great. Affordable and the staff are very friendly and laid back. Can get a bit overcrowded or claustrophobic on popular events. Has a photo booth

Great laugh, plays proper bangers all night long, and it’s on a boat. Thekla Thursday is always a good night to go on as it’s rock and indie 🤟ðŸ�»

Really good, long queue nice staff, had a nice evening but you have to get there either really early or really late which is annoying

Amazing venue with a good atmosphere. Great student nights with two for one deals with drinks. Pop confessional is always amazing and gets everyone in the mood for a fantastic night out.
