Blue Mountain Club


Party and club at the Blue Mountain Club


Similar to Blue Mountain in Jamaica after which it was named, after more than 10 years of service this Stokes Croft club is very much alive and is not ready to give up. As most other venues are trying to appeal to the masses, Blue Mountain stays true to its roots in a humble and reassuring way. Two rooms and a large covered outdoor terrace are linked by a helical, narrow staircase. When the dance floor gets packed the crowd overflows to the terrace. The venue could do with a good revamp, but this isn't a club you visit to show off your designer clothes, but rather a place to rave and go wild!

Expected entrance fee: £5+ - £8+
