The Mothers Ruin

The Mothers Ruin

Rockers bar with all the trimmings and two floors of music.


The Mothers Ruin has been doing it's thing in St. Nick's market since 2007. Alongside the Gryphon, the Ruin is Bristol's best harder-edged bar frequented by rocker/metal kids. From blues, math rock, post-rock, punk, indie and experimental, Mothers Ruin throws a broad net for music heads - although a lot of UWE/Bristol Uni students may be there for the £2.50 house beer/cider and Thursday quizzes.

Their newly refurbed basement occasionally caters for more club focused nights (like Illegal Data). With a 2am license it's one of our more treasured venues in the centre of Bristol.
