9 reviews of Bristol Bierkeller in English
With the resurgence of the Fleece as a rock venue the Bierkeller seems to have given up the ghost as a place for live music. That’s a shame as I’ve seen loads of great punk and metal bands there over the years: Sham 69, Lurkers, Napalm Death, Extreme Noise Terror, Macc Lads, Discharge, Chaos UK, Gwar, 999, UK Subs, Adicts, Ian Hunter, the list goes on and on. Ok the toilets were grotty and it was hell getting served at the bar, but being bigger than the Fleece allowed you to wander around a bit and catch the act from different angles without being constantly squashed up against a load of other people. Plus there were places to sit. I was also impressed with how the bouncers kept a low profile but would immediately swoop in if trouble ever started and would spirit away the perpetrator. The move into theatre with Moby Dick etc is surely headed for disaster but no doubt the place will be kept going by its oompah nights and kiddie rock discos. But bring back the bands I say!
Went here last nite for the Oompa Band and the Worzels. Ive got to say its a great laugh with competitions on stage (who can yodle the best, girls best ass shakin etc) and some great sing along music. Its a very mixed dress code wear whatever u like fancy dress jeans cowboy hats wellies it really doesnt matter.
Age range is very mixed, young and old mainly 25 - 40s and older I would guess. This is great for anyone who is not so young any more lol
The majority of the nite is spent standing on the benches singing along and swaying to the music, which is a great way to excercise! Its a real party atmosphere with everyone very friendly
We rang and collected tickets when we got there from a guy with envelopes outside the front entrance. Its not cheap at £14 each entrance price - drinks were £9 for a stein of beer and a bacardi and coke (I think a stein is around a litre not sure)
We had a great time and will be going again soon
Not suitable for a quiet night out !
I’ve been here to various concerts and all-dayers over the years, and think it’s a decent venue. The ceiling is a bit low and seating odd (picnic tables) but the staff is friendly, the toilets reasonably clean and the drinks cheap.
I like the fact that they have a wide range of rock and alternative bands performing here. I’ve seen local bands as well as larger bands like Anthrax, The Mission and The Damned here.
The Bierkeller is one of the more reasonable venues in Bristol for seeing recognised bands like The Undertones and The Buzzcocks. It is a quite a dark and dingy place but don’t see that a bad thing! Good for rockers old and young…
The Bierkeller is a night club and music venue which has been open for many years in the centre of bristol. The venue is quite dark and the floor is usually sticky, but this adds to its ambience.
I have been to rock nights here, which are usually fun, lots of jumping about to Offspring and Metalicca Tunes. I have seen Mercury Rev at the Bierkeller a while ago and it was a good gig and the venue added the performance. I prefer a smaller venue rather than being miles away from the band that is performing.
The Bierkeller also do German Beer nights where the beer is served in large 2 pint tankards, I haven’t been to one of these nights but I have heard that they are a good laugh.
The Bristol Bierkeller is a great place to socialise on the weekend with friends. I don’t think I can fault it – drinks are really cheap, there is a fun and friendly atmosphere and you are guaranteed to have a great time. Featuring the live Oompah band on Saturdays and often appearances from the Wurzels! Varied music but always great! Recommended!
