Thekla has a great range of music, holding pop nights and indie nights! Brilliant for students and not too expensive

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.

Good venue with decent events all year, however drinks and entry are expensive! Decent amount of drinks available at the bars with friendly bar staff. Overall an okay night out.

Thekla is the host to many of the best gigs in Bristol. While there may not be a huge arena yet in the city, it has an influential music scene for acts breaking through and forward thinking. Thekla has the unique selling point of being on a boat, but the stage setup and balcony pack a small venue feel into a medium capacity venue. Add to that, a multitude of rooms for club nights - which include the excellent Itchy Feet and Soul Jam - and you have a flexible establishment well loved by many.

Thekla is a great venue with a diverse range of club nights for people of different music tastes. They do great student discount on entry fees. It's location is great because bus stops aren't far and it's a decent walking distance from city centre student accommodation.

Banging club, love it, where else would you get a mixture of Stormzy, drake and bieber on the bottom deck and Whitney, bonnie Tyler and the legendary Toto on the top deck? Great smoking area and booths to chat in!!

Best night in Bristol, great music on many nights of the week. Thursday is rock/pop/metal and is awesome with 2 for 1 drinks. Saturday is pop night and is great. Always good tunes and fairly cheap and good drinks.

Great intimate venue that's really cosy and friendly staff. Great place to watch a gig in you feel very close to the band - good for general Nightlife on the weekend as well would definitely recommend to people that aren't interested in the huge mainstream clubs!

The atmosphere and unique setting of this venue is incredible, there is a whole array of music genres and people who visit it making it really diverse. Also the fact there are two floors and a deck smoking area means you never get bored on a night out at Thekla. Thekla is also really admirable for introducing and promoting new and exciting new acts, which include both dis and bands, making a really inclusive list of nights on all year around.

Value for money is great, Thursdays for thekla is the best nights I have had. Great music, generally friendly staff including the door staff. Everyone knows that thekla is a great night out whether it's for general nights out or if there's live music you'll have a great time.

Thekla is such a diverse and unique establishment. It has been around since the 80s and is a boat. It holds a variety of different nights. My most recent visit has been to there Thursday student night. This is mainly indie and rock music themed. It is free before 10,30 and buy one get one free for drinks so is a good value for money. Would highly recommend to anyone. There is events for everyone ones taste and it’s also a live music venue.
