Legendary basement venue in the heart of St Pauls that transforms from daytime wine bar to nighttime bass den

Cosies has a rightful reputation as one of the city's most legendary party spots. A wine bar by day, when night falls Cosies transforms into one of Bristol's best clubs.

A longstanding focus on all things dubwise and bass heavy means this tiny basement venue has become synonymous with the sound-system culture that lies at the foundation of the Bristol club scene. 

The Sunday reggae sessions remain an essential dance for those of a roots persuasion, while for those who like their rhythms a little tougher, local dancehall dons Ruffnek Diskotek are regularly on hand to cater to all of your bashment needs.

Imagine St Pauls Carnival in a tiny wine bar with added church pews, and you are somewhere close. And just like at carnival time, a night in Cosies lets you experience the rich variety of characters that live in Bristol – on any night here, you'll find the perfect blend of fortysomething locals, students, after-work drinkers, Red Stripe and bass.

Bristol to the core, if it's good, honest fun and authenticity that you are after, then you can do no better than Cosies.
