Everything he told me about the atmosphere of the club is reflected in all the reactions I read on this site.
For me, the Moles club has a special meaning. Although I never have been in Bath (I'm from the Netherlands) one of my precious bootlegs is the try-out of The Cure in 1983.
Robert Smith stated in an interview they really didn't need the PA, because of the small venue, everyone could hear them without amplifiers.
I really like the atmosphere on the recording, it really shows the smallness of the venue.
If I ever get to Bath I sure will visit the Moles club!
Sunday evening accoustic session are fantastical .Between 6/8pm is the perfect come down from the weekend .
Have seen some amazing acts in Moles in the last 6 months have lived near there ,Jont,Cherry Ghost,Laura Marling,Sam Brooks to name a few & looking forwards to many more .
Big up the Moles bar staff possie! Big shout out to Ant (Face like the big bright moon) & Ben (no self respecting Ska fan should ignore) & Al ( nuff said!)
p.s. Drink Betty Stogs - it's the s*t
Mole's is my absolute favourite club of all time. It's a rock n roll club, with dirty dark roots showing and nothing to be ashamed of.
The entrance fee is typically £5, but the drinks are the cheapest here I've found in Bath -- you won't be wowed by the fine selection of whiskys, but you can happily sup all night for £20, which is important when you're young and/or poor.
The best thing about Mole's is the music, and that's why it exists. The people at Mole's love music of all kinds. From Indie Nights to Blues Nights to 70s themes and punk rawk raw, music is why Mole's opened, and why it continues to have a heaving crowd most nights of the week.
The great DJs, including Leonie Leroide and other well known Bath personalities, aren't afraid to mix things that don't go together, and do it with aplomb. But they aren't turning out the same old tired David Guetta trash -- they're mixing their own stuff, and doing it without needing the crowd to kiss their derrieres.
The staff are all really helpful and polite, which one doesn't expect in a dirty dingy rock club, and some of them have even become friends of ours.
There are three different bits to Mole's, playing different types of music, which is quite nice. You can go upstairs into the red room, pastered with photos and posters of famous and not-so-famous folk, and hear some older stuff, usually the Bobs -- Dylan and Marley make one or more appearances each night.
Downstairs tends to be the live act or clubby-dancy music, depending upon the night and the crowd.
A friendly little club where people of all ages and marketing bands will feel comfortable.
moles has a bit of a split personality, really good as its live music venue, however as a club its rather poor, its got the indie/ alternative vibe going and can at times be good fun…but i’v been a few times when the place fails to fill up at all, even on what one would assume to be a busy night, they do have a fairly decent drinks selection but this wont make up for when the club is empty bar one pilled out 40 year old on the dance floor..approach with caution (when its just a normal club night)
I saw Marillion here in the early 1990s, and remember the place vividly.
Set into the pavement, the venue is tightly packed, dark, and very sweaty - with the crowd virtually sitting on the band’s laps. I can’t really remember how good the sound was, but the atmosphere was out of this world.
I didn’t drink there - there is a pub just around the corner, and a cafe above (or was, anyway).
The calibre of upcoming artists this place attracts is phenomenal. Admittedly alongside some of those artists are the sorts of acts who wouldn’t get to play anywhere if they weren’t bringing their mates along, but it’s the unpredictability that makes places like this fun. The layout of the club means that it’s not particularly good when it’s sold out as the area in front of the stage is pretty small, though the professional sound engineers they get working there mean that usually you get a really good sound out of bands playing there. The beer is a bit gross and flat, but this isn’t the sort of place you come to for good beer.
Look out for nights hosted by Purr, who have a good quality filter for what they put on
Moles is a club in a basement in George Street. It has Live music and Club nights.
I haven’t been to Moles for a while now but saw some good local and national bands there a few years ago. I have just checked their website and Franz Ferdinand are playing there soon.
Moles is a small venue and has a very low ceiling so it does get boiling hot on a club night.
