We walked into this bar just to have a drink before a meal further up the road. The security at the front were rude, aggressive and unnecessarily blunt. The security seems to be on a power trip, but their manner was laughable to be honest. They shouted that we needed to leave at 7.30pm, no later. They didn’t need to worry as we had left in ten minutes. The main bar staff were fine. The online ordering is good and drinks arrived quickly. We downed the drinks and left, feeling quite chilled as the men at the table next to us were smoking week! What a hole of a place!
A cool alternative place to stay, drink, chill and get a bite to eat in the heart of Bristol. Not quite the hippy vibe, more raw around the edges than that but friendly enough, The staff are a content tight nit bunch and desk people are very helpful. The bar is a bar, with all kinds as is Bristol. Not quite as live and let live as say Berlin but good enough. Slight pirate vibes which is also, Bristol!
Last Sunday I went down to see Kosheen at The Full Moon with a small group of friends. It was the first time I had been to a gig or even an evening event since lock down started. I was so impressed by the structure, the cleanliness, and all the practices in place to make everyone feel safe, welcome and looked after. This is particularity important to me as I was /am very vulnerable. I had such a lovely evening, everyone was so chilled, it was delightful.
Staff and security did nothing when a customer was targeted with homophobic slurs. Staff and security laughed at customers and treated them like trouble makers when they asked for help and made them leave instead of getting the homophobic abuser to leave. Totally unacceptable behaviour that shows exclusion of LGBTQ acceptance in a place and area that is (usually) very liberal. Very disappointing as I have always enjoyed going to this bar before. Lots of us are totally let down now. Does not make you feel safe, welcome or supported which is the purpose in having security staff! Security staff seem to be homophobic as well by accounts. The bar manager was not interested either in resolving or helping.
Security Guard Lee made our night absolutely hilarious and genuinely lovely guy. absolutely hilarious, quick drinks service and great staff. had a really great time and the security guard made the night by giving us a laugh
