The Louisiana

Wapping Road, Bathurst Terrace, Bristol, BS1 6UA.

Capacity: 120

Bar

The Louisiana is a 140 capacity, family run venue that takes pride in putting on the best musicians and giving both them and the audience the perfect communion. This is something we’ve been working on for over 25 years.

There was a fire at The Fleece, Bristol in 1996, and two local promoters asked if they could use the room upstairs at The Louisiana instead. We said yes, and in the first week Placebo and Super Furry Animals played here… at the time, we didn’t even have a stage.

Gianni built a stage a week later, which was lucky because within weeks more promoters were involved and we were staging gigs on a regular basis. We’d get up-and-coming DJs in only charging people 50p entry; The Chemical Brothers played one of these and we even started doing club nights in the basement at weekends.
