Venue LIS INGS Your monthly region by region guide to your best local venues.. this month BRISTOL! Venue of the Month: Thekla


The Grove, East Mud Dock, Bristol BS1 4RB 0117 929 3301 www.theklabristol.co.uk Thekla’s reputation is something of a notorious badge of honour on the battleground gigging circuit of Bristol. Up and coming bands and DJs are all welcome, not to mention its thriving and diverse club nights. Oh, and did we mention it’s a two-fl oored boat? Well that’ll just about sell it to anyone. The old Baltic coaster came to Bristol in 1983 and stands at 180 feet long and 30 feet wide with a brand new dance fl oor and viewing balcony. Its revived insides don’t refl ect the boats murky past, they adhere more to the visuals of a modern club. The Thekla has a bar and a café that serves food daily, until the night comes and it’s transformed a fl oating party enriched with musical decadence.
