Online Arts Editor Helena Raymond-Hayling and local arty party animal Kitty Marryat give you a window into the artistic soul of your favourite Bristol night out.
Lizard Lounge / The Lounge: Pop art
Basic, colourful and tacky. Reminiscent of your primary school years, where let's face it — you peaked. Filled wall to wall with carbon copies of the same people, and home to men who — like Warhol — will retain their virginity well into their fifties.

Does anyone really know what it is? Riddled with identity crisis, mystery and in a constant state of metamorphosis.
Is it a deep political statement about our turbulent society? Or is it a mindless crime against the streets of central Bristol?
Motion: Abstract Expressionism
Pretentious and messy, but ultimately just a shallow pit of hypermasculine circlejerking. Make sure to watch out for the expressive flailing and the iconic drip that puts Pollock to shame.
An institution which sanitises the kooky and edgy side of human consciousness and throws in some posh sadboys to make it fit for general consumption. As inconspicuous as Magritte — 'No officer, ceci n'est pas un nos-bar'.
Not much to it, basically just full of squares.
Cosies: Op art
Small and lesser known than its bigger cousins, this venue can get super freaky and has the power to confuse endlessly.
Love Inn: Conceptual Art
Try as much as you can to get it, but in the end it's just a repurposed toilet. With an undeserving place next to some of the big names, everyone will claim to like it but no one actually will.
Mr Wolf's: Impressionism
Universally appealing and inherently inoffensive, even your nan likes it. All round solid crowd and stands the test of time.
