Bristol is one of the most vibrant cities in the UK. Once most famous as a port and the home to Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s SS Great Britain, it is now a hive of culture and nightlife, a city popular with weekenders and students alike. It is considered the gateway to the South West and is brilliant if you love museums, art galleries, or a buzzing nightlife that takes in live music, comedy and festivals.
Bristol certainly is one of the nicest places to live in the UK. It is consistently rated amongst the best places to live in the UK, it is the UKs only European Green Capital and its location means you are never far away from the city, countryside or sea.
What to do in Bristol This New Years Eve?
If you are looking for ideas of what to do in Bristol, it is worth checking out the Skiddle website which gives you lots of really cool ideas when it comes to live entertainment and shows, food and drink ideas and gigs. You can use the site easily by searching for an artist, venue or just a general keyword, and then specifying the date you are staying in the city, or maybe the date of a special birthday if you are looking for options for a friend.
One thing that the site is really good for is highlighting great ideas for New Year’s Eve. For many, this is the most important, most glamorous night of the year, and one you really want to push the boat out for. Bristol has some brilliant events lined up for NYE 2023, these include club nights like the DnB Allstars night at the Bristol O2 Academy which goes on until 4am, a New Years Eve Carnival featuring Rumble in the Jungle x Propyard which promises to be Bristol’s largest multi genre event, and the legendary Groove Armada at The Marble Factory as the clock strikes midnight.
If your idea of a fun New Years Eve is dancing the night away to a mixture of cheesy pop and dance, you could look into the Masquerade night at Rumours Lounge Bar and Pub. This is definitely a night for putting on your glad rags and partying like its almost 2024. An alternative could be New Years Eve at Bonzo Lounge, where the cocktails are sure to flow. But Bristol also promises to offer something for everyone, so you could avoid the music and dancing altogether, and instead end 2023 with a little bit of magic as World renowned magician Peter Clifford returns to the city with a brand new Christmas show that is actually family friendly, which means you can even take your kids.
No matter what you choose to do this New Year’s Eve, we now have just 24 days until we reach the end of 2023, so now is definitely the time to get something organised.
