There is plenty of things to do in Bristol in the evening, and some things are even more fun in the evening than they are during the day. With all kinds of taverns and theaters to visit, travelers of all kinds will find something to do.
1. Brandon Hill Park
Brandon Hill, also known as St Brandon’s Hill, is a hill close to Bristol City center, between the districts of Clifton and Hotwells, in southwest England. This is a nice relaxing area to take the kids for an evening picnic and enjoy the outside world. This is a great place to enjoy nature as it truly is, and it is open at all hours.

2. Milk Thistle
Easter bunny just stopping off here for a tipple before his big day, looking dapper.Posted by The MilkThistle on Saturday, 15 April 2017
This bar gets pretty exciting when the evening hits on the weekend. The staff is polite but when they get busy keep in mind that they have to tend to more than just one person or group. This bar is a great place to spend some quality time with a spouse or a group of good friends. The atmosphere is just so pleasant that one can’t wait to get back here.

Delicious Sandwiches- Stews- Soups - Tagine's etc on the menu at Cosies! today. We're also now serving take away coffee locally sourced at Brian Wogan. Irish coffee available too ;)Posted by Cosies! on Thursday, 6 October 2016
A good time doesn’t always have to be expensive. Cosie’s is a great place to go for a great night out. Great drinks and a great atmosphere, one shouldn’t overlook Cosie’s simple but small place. Sometimes the smallest places are the best places. There are good drinks and some good food here so be sure to check it out when in Bristol.

4. Tobacco Factory Theatre
Awesome photo from last night's Drink and Draw Bristol in The Snug. Don't miss the next one - always on the first Tuesday of the month.Posted by Tobacco Factory on Wednesday, 8 February 2017
Despite its name, the Tobacco Factory Theatre is actually a café and bar that visitors can go to enjoy a nice evening. They have different events almost every night that they are open, ranging from comedy shows to musical acts. This is a great place to have a beer with a few friends because they can enjoy a few laughs while here. Definitely check out what events are happening before deciding to go as the acts change from night to night.

5. The Beer Emporium
This is how we do Sunday at The Beer Emporium..Posted by The Beer Emporium - Bristol on Sunday, 20 November 2016
Obvious from its name, there is a lot of beer to try here at the Beer Emporium. The place has a great atmosphere as well because it’s just so friendly and bright. There is a lot of different beer here but keep in mind that drinking too much is still a sign of bad manners, just like it is in American culture, so be aware of how much you’re really drinking.

6. Bristol Hippodrome
Ben thinks his Gran is the boringest Granny ever: all she wants to do is play Scrabble and eat cabbage soup. But there...Posted by Bristol Hippodrome on Friday, 12 May 2017
The Bristol Hippodrome is just as unique as its name. This is a performance theater for travelers who enjoy the works of theater productions. It’s a good habit to check their main website to see what is happening here before making a trip here, and tickets can be bought online for those performances so visitors know they will get a seat. Performances have been known to make the audience gasp out loud and cry a few tears as they are such amazing performances.

7. The Old Duke
A return visit to play at The Old Duke Bristol this evening playing in the rhythm section of Jeremy Hugget's all-sorts. Please drop by if you are in the area.Posted by Simon Latarche Piano on Sunday, 30 April 2017
One of the oldest pubs in Bristol, The Old Duke gives visitors a sense of the past with their old decorations and attitudes in the bar. A great place to visit on a weekend evening, the staff is always ready to help those that walk into the door. They have refreshing adult beverages and some great entertainment. They are always having gigs that range from jazz bands to old rock bands that are fun to listen to. They aren’t popular names that are here but that’s what makes them so cool.

8. The Bootlegger
An independent bar and kitchen that opened in 2014, The Bootlegger is a great club to go to when travelers are looking for a quaint bar with good drinks. The selection of spirits and mixed drinks is a long list so don’t feel obligated to drink them all. Their food is prepared fresh, so no need to worry about where the food is coming from or how long it’s been in the freezer. Between good food, yummy drinks, and a fun atmosphere, The Bootlegger is not something visitors should miss out on.

9. The Bank Tavern
Have we got a treat for you today! - http://tinyurl.com/pbnuslw Guide2Bristol Bristol Old City @iBristolPeople @bristolgoodfoodPosted by The Bank Tavern on Sunday, 6 December 2015
Another pub in Bristol that visitors will love to visit is the Bank Tavern. The name may sound odd but the place is warm and welcoming when customers walk in the door. Actually, visitors can choose to sit inside or outside in this tavern. When customer choose to dine outside, they get to experience everything in Bristol firsthand. They definitely have some unique dishes here too. Something called a Pigs ear Terrine is on the menu and as weird as it sounds, it must be tried if they have it that day. The staff is friendly and the experience will leave travelers wishing they could go back just once more.
