Bath might be dinky, but she knows how to party. Everything in Bath is underground – that’s subterranean, not grimy, avant garde alternative underground. Every weekend the sweating walls of the nightclubs under the city are packed with hoards of hen parties looking for cheesy chart tunes. But all is not lost – Bath also has live music venues and a fine range of drinking holes from classy cocktail joints to good old-fashioned pubs serving up local ale. See my Nightlife in Bath: Bath in the Dark guide for tips about the top places to go.
Bath also has plenty of venues to enjoy some culture with your glass of wine – with several theatres, cinemas and comedy clubs offering escapism when the lights go down. See my Nightlife in Bath: a cultural guide for the low-down on Bath’s more intellectual nighttime offerings.
