It’s an old cliché, but our goal is to truly host something for everyone and you’ll find that after a few socials, friendships form fast.  We understand that big nights out aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so we offer a mix of events (with and without alcohol).  We’ll advertise the latest socials in our weekly meetings and through our weekly e-mail so make sure get your free membership.

Here’s a bit of a taster of the events we normally throw each year:

  • Weekly trips to Mandalyns
  • ‘Sungay’ lunch
  • Ice Skating
  • Inter-Uni bar crawls in Bristol with Bath Spa, Bristol and UWE
  • Film Nights
  • Nights out in Bristol
  • Coffee/Tea mornings
  • Halloween Party with Bath Spa, Bristol and UWE
  • Christmas Meal

Of course we are open to any suggestions for socials! If you have any ideas then feel free to e-mail us at lgbt@bath.ac.uk.


 

The Scene

Bath

Mandalyns
Location: 13 Fountain Buildings, Lansdown Road, Bath BA1 5DX.
Mandalyns is Bath's most popular gay pub, and tends to be the one that we frequent the most often.  It's usually taken over by students on Thursday night - a night that is always worth a visit, often because Thursday night is karaoke night!  Friday nights and the weekend are also very popular with Bath's local clientèle and students.  It is one of the friendliest pubs in Bath, and you can be sure to receive a warm welcome from the entire bar staff and customers there.  See the website for drinks offers and upcoming cabaret & drag acts.


Bristol

The gay scene is Bristol is located a short, 20 minute walk away from Temple Meads train station.  Luckily all the venues below are just a short walk from one another!

OMG! (Club)
Location: 1-2 Frog lane, Bristol BS1 5UX.
OMG! is the largest of the clubs - with its big dance floor and raised podiums it feels every inch a superclub!  Wednesday is student night here with free entry, and the in-house drag act always gets a laugh (especially when someone from Bath LGBT+ volunteers!). Weekends are also always busy and a good time.

The Queenshilling (Club)
Location: 9 Frogmore Street, Bristol BS1 5NA.
Queenshilling hold various theme nights each week, and good deals are offered for students.  The music tends to be recent popular type stuff with some old classics thrown in now and again. 

OMG Bar
Location: 4 Frogmore street, Bristol BS1 5UX.
OMG Bar boasts an illuminated dancefloor and a chilled out atmosphere making it a great place to start any night!
