1 West Street, Bristol, United Kingdom, BS2 0DF
Permanently CLOSED (March 2018).
Situated in a gorgeous Grade II listed building, The Palace in Old Market (also known as ‘The Gin Palace’ or simply ‘The Palace’) is a staple of Bristol’s gay scene.
A warm welcome is offered to all visitors, who of course must try some of their gin on offer. Theatrical decorations and live drag shows add to the splendour.
venue: bar | features: bar, music, dancing, karaoke, live music | customers: gay
“Ok lets say you happen to be in Bristol for some reason and you are simply looking for a place to relax on a Friday night don't come here. Its the most telling indictment of what it is to be gay - sad, oppressive, insular, misogynist, not to mention the alcohol soaked carpet. The bartender screamed at me, the place reeks of a provincialism and some kind of parochial cloying small village affair - rubbishing common decency and cosmopolitan sensibility. I left shattered. This kind of place puts down not just what it is to be queer but the very idea of travelling and exploring.“
