“Convenient venue”
Review of O2 Academy

O2 Academy
Ranked #26 of 149 Nightlife in Bristol
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Have visited this venue several times, it has a great location (once you know where to find it - at the back of the hippodrome!) Staff are hit and miss, sometimes they are friendly and helpful, other times they are rude. Drinks are expensive, but I suppose that’s to be expected. When seeing a popular music artist, expect it to be packed, there are hardly any seating areas. Overall the sound has always been great, and is easy to access by foot. Will visit there again no doubt.

Great music venue. Have been quite a few times and close to hotels and the Bullring. Great local bars and restaurants and right next to Chinatown.

We went here to see Walk The Moon and it was a good venue for this kind of band. We had a great view from the top balcony and there's a raised area up here as well which meant it spaced out quite well if you didn't want to be jostled around and you could easily have a drink whilst watching. The drink offers for the O2 were good as well with buy-one-get-one-free on drinks (for one per O2 member).

Really enjoyed my first visit to the 02 Academy which has plenty of vantage points to get a good view of the stage and has bars on each floor.

Amazing venue with great visibility and sound from where ever you are. only down side i would have is the prices of drinks and not clearly noticeable where merchandise stand is at and not many staff around to ask but brilliant otherwise. great multistory car park next door which is reasonably priced
