St Nicholas Street, Bristol
A lounge club with good drinks and live music. It's in the heart of Clifton so the crowd can be a little stuffy on occasion. However, Thursday nights are a more laid back affair as the club is set aside for live jazz and latin music.

Renowned Bristol jazz joint named after Duke Ellington. The live music every night ranges from traditional New Orleans to more modern interpretations. The walls and ceiling are plastered with old and new jazz posters evoking memories of gigs and artists. Each year over the August Bank Holiday weekend The Old Duke holds its own jazz festival which takes over the lower end of King Street.
45 King Street BS1 4ER
Friday nights see the back room at The Bear in Hotwells transformed into a first rate chin-stroking, riff-applauding jazz club. The venue is intimate so if you're sat at the front you're pretty much sat with the band. Proper.
The Bear, 261 Hotwell Road;
