Bag of Nails is one our favourite pubs in Bristol
Affordable ales, cats, board games, a fantastic atmosphere and did we say cats? You more than likely knew about Bristol’s cat cafe, but did you know Bristol has its very own cat pub?
Located on 141, St Georges Road in Hotwells. You may end up missing Bag of Nails if you’re not looking out for it.
From the sign on the window you quickly get a feel of the kind of establishment legendary barkeep Luke runs here.
This is further emphasised with no children being allowed in. It’s no place to bring the kids, and it’s soon apparent why.
Because it’s filled with kittens! Beautiful kittens and cats are everywhere.
Here’s the mother.
And her friend…. sitting on a microwave.
You won’t find lager in this pub. It’s ale all the way and it’s damn tasty.
There’s also some brilliant music here. You can use Bag of Nails’ vinyl player to select from an array of quality records.
But… there are many rules, each one better than the last.
So many rules it needs two sides…
There’s also hundreds of different games you can play. Most of them we have never heard of…
But above all it’s just a really, really, really nice place for a pint.
We couldn’t recommend Bag of Nails more, it’s an amazing bar to drink in Bristol. The staff & locals are great characters, the cats are unbelievably cute and the music is superb.
Give this pub a visit… as long as you’re not on a stag do, on the way to the Bunker, with kids, or just a general piss kidney because the owner will throw you straight out.
While you’re at it why don’t you give them a like on their Facebook page?
