The Grain Barge

The Grain Barge

Unique bar and music venue aboard a boat in Hotwells.


The Grain Barge is a boat on Bristol's harbourside owned by the Tobbaco Factory.

The boat consists of two floors, upstairs for eating and drinking and downstairs in the hold where the gigs happen. On deck there are pub benches for sunbathers/smokers.

The Grain Barge currently has regular live music on Friday evenings and occasional other nights. The venue can be a great place to see Bristol folk and jazz bands.

Though aboard a boat there's a surprisingly decent space to dance and service at the bars is always quick.

Gigs at the Grain Barge are usually around £3-5.
