Crowdfunding campaign launched for new Bristol venue

Bristol promotion team Dirtytalk have launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund the creation of a new music and arts venue in the city, named Strange Brew.

With a capacity of 330 people, the multi-use space will boast a large bar/café area that will also be used for live performances, exhibitions and hold a small record shop, plus separate secondary performance room.

The team plan to work with local sound engineers Amber Audio to install a high-grade D&B Audio soundsystem, and extra thought has clearly gone into providing gender-neutral toilets and lockers, to avoid a long line for the cloakroom.

Bristol nightlife has taken a serious hit in recent years. Legendary venue Lakota announced closure last year, alongside band-orientated space Bierkeller, while Blue Mountain and Thekla also came close to shutting down. “We hope that by bringing a new space into being we will be helping to address this decline and at the same time offering an exciting new venue for the city,” say the Dirtytalk group via their Crowdfunder page.
