i never went but from the other side of the country growing up scouring every page of kerrang and metal hammer this place seemed like one of the coolest places in the land
but it served beer to people who were like 15, played actual good music in the hidden away room, and I totally got like 14 different girls because of it.
and i was wrong how ;)
it had a hidden room for drunk 15 year olds, and you had 14 of them?
I like the clear statement that you're not counting any of them twice.
Do you know why it closed?
I went a couple of months ago for the first time in about 3 years, it hadn't changed :)
i spent many a friday nights of my youth in that place! i hadnt been in a long time though, music box gone too? seen loadsa good bands in ther too!
they have Scruff
but still itll be weird walkin past there now as jillys as been there as long as i can remember
making out to Pantera
that was a special night for me too
and made a couple of nostalgia visits some time later (I had returned to Bristol after finishing Uni but still go up occasionally). Anyone else old enough to remember when the basement was open?
I saw my mate's mate's metal covers band play there when I was at Uni. Then we went in the small room to dance to The Cure.
its the end of an era for sure, hard to find clubs that are anything like the dives in sci fi movies nowadays.
Hopefully it wont become a starbucks or a bank.
