Great DJs, an eclectic mix of live music and more make this Gloucester Road pub a popular spot
Saying you’re spoilt for choice when trying to choose a pub or bar to visit in Gloucester Road is an understatement. Recent additions to the roster, such as the excellent Urban Standard, have been steadily growing in popularity. However, when it comes to music, The Golden Lion still attracts patrons from across the city for its eclectic offering of bands, DJs and performers.
Expect any and all genres, from folk and funk to rock and hip hop, plus everything in between – sometimes all in the same night. Local Bristol talent is flaunted here, with bands such as Yes Rebels and artists such as Eva Lazarus returning to play barnstorming sets time and time again.
For those brave enough to show off their own musical talents, there’s an open mic night every Monday, which is as worth attending as a punter as it is a performer. If passive entertainment is more your thing, then it’s worth heading down on a Sunday for the weekly Film Club: a pint and a picture on a lazy Sunday, what more could you ask for?
