Bath Nightclubs – The Best Nightclubs in Bath
The beautiful spa city of Bath has firmly established itself as a destination in the UK for those looking to eat, drink, shop, browse, walk and party around somewhere new.
Famed for its spectacular Georgian architecture that looks to be lifted straight from a postcard and its traditional pubs lit up with warm fires and serving local ales, the city is somewhere that everyone can easily pass the time for at least several days, but if you’re looking for a party while there, there are several nightclubs in Bath that can help you crave the itch for a good dance and fancy drink.
Most Popular Bath Nightclubs
As the city has experienced a surge in popularity over the last few years and cemented itself as a bit of a tourist hotspot, the Bath nightclub scene has gone from strength to strength.
From chain clubs with big dance floors and cocktails to more niche venues, there’s something for everyone… and all are worth a visit!
Labyrinth Bath claims to be the most popular Bath nightclub and is open an impressive 6 days for a week for those looking to dance the night away! An extensive bottle menu is served throughout the club’s 4 themed rooms, 3 bars and 2 clubrooms, with seasonal events and guest DJ appearances on constantly.
Tickets for events start at a bargain 99p and drinks offers vary between club nights. A fairly mainstream option for clubbing, this Bath nightclub plays all kinds of music and often features cheap student nights for those looking for chart-toppers and pop.
Most nights at Labyrinth don’t feature a dress code, but check before you leave. Some events will require ticket purchase in advance. ID is always required for entry and visitors may be subject to random security searches at the door.
Zero Zero is seen as one of the more exclusive Bath nightclubs, with the city’s largest VIP room. With DJs playing the best in RnB, house, hip hop and reggaeton alongside a brilliantly sized bar and expert events team, Zero Zero is very much seen as Bath’s destination for parties.
Custom drinks packages and private hire are available, as well as cocktail masterclass experiences with qualified mixologists! The club is open four nights a week, each with a distinctive feel.
Bomb Wednesdays is a favourite amongst students with discounted shots, Latin Loco Thursday brings an international vibe, Luv Fridays offer £1 tickets and Truth Saturdays offer free prosecco for all and 10% of all bottle purchases.
A minimum spend applies to private parties booked in Zero Zero and a strict dress code is in place on Saturdays.
Unusually named Moles, is a live music and indie type club that feels cosy and warm inside; more akin to a mate’s house you party in than a pretentious Bath nightclub!
The home of alternative club night Propaganda, Moles hosts live music and DJ gigs alongside themed nights including cheesy ‘guilty pleasures’ tracks, 70s, 80s and 90s music, 00s hip hop, 90s chart pop and 80s and 90s dance floor fillers.
Most nights in Moles don’t have a dress code in place, but it’s best to check in advance.
Tickets for gigs will usually need purchasing in advance, although there may be some left on the door on occasion; and the venue is famed for having hosted the likes of Radiohead, Oasis, Bastille, Mumford & Sons and Ed Sheeran before they all hit the big time!
Some Different Bath Nightclubs
The Bath nightclubs scene does include some alternative venues that are focused on a single niche or music genre, so there’s plenty of places to visit if you’re looking for something specific, too.
Lomah, which stands for Land Of Milk And Honey, is an upmarket club open to those aged 21+ only set in an old bakery with an industrial vibe. Situated under the Walcot restaurant and adjacent to the Bread & Jam cocktail bar, Lomah has recently undergone a full renovation.
It now features an open plan bar with seating for 90 and standing space for 80, with another room featuring a dance floor with capacity for 150 people. Most DJs at Lomah play hip hop and RnB but there are themed nights to offer a broader range of musical genres on regularly.
Lomah has very strict house rules to help foster a laidback vibe, with no dress code.
One of the better parties to be at is the Second Bridge in Bath. For many it is the first night out of the week. The place has a plethora of options to choose from, with a number of notables to be found in the basement, the main floor and the upper echelons.
The Second Bridge also offers a well-curated beer and cocktail menu to keep the thirst at bay. Its two bars, one on each floor, are stocked with a range of standard booze and cocktails. The pub is open all day and all night. The venue also has a small pool area, which is an excellent vantage point for taking in the view of the city.
Moreover, the Second Bridge is located in the centre of Bath, which means it has easy access to a large proportion of the city's pub crawlers. In short, Second Bridge has got to be the premier destination for your evening's drinking and dancing needs. The venue also has an impressive VIP and cabaret area, which is perfect for those who want to dance the night away in style.
The Common Room
And last but not least of our recommendations for nightclubs in Bath is The Common Room. A 1950s tropical themed venue with two distinct rooms for drinking, mingling and partying.
The ground floor features a bar and small but perfectly formed dance floor with a large disco ball sparkling in the centre, and the first floor is a lounge-style drinking parlour. A little more laidback, upstairs is a great place to sit on a sprawling sofa with a cocktail and chat and relax; and is available for private hire for special occasions or parties.
The Common Room offers cocktail and rum masterclasses with their expert mixologists for those looking for something extra special, and these can be booked in advance either through their website or by contacting the bar directly.
Although primarily home to DJs, the venue has recently started featuring live bands and artists once a month and given the popularity of these nights, is likely to become a more regular feature.
