Their tenth Bristol opening is Death Disco and it will occupy the space on St Stephen’s Street which previously housed iconic Bristol nightlife spots such as Bar Latina and The Doghouse. 

The new venue will draw on Hyde & Co’s experience as purveyors of some of the city’s best award winning cocktail bars, whilst combining their expertise in bringing in local and guest DJs to the city, to create a unique nightlife experience.

The venue, which has capacity for up to 180 guests, will take inspiration from the legendary nightclubs of New York from the late 1970s and 80s, including Studio 54 and Danceteria, where the likes of Madonna, The Beastie Boys and Andy Warhol were regulars. 

Incorporating several vaulted spaces, including a private event space, a bar and a dance floor, Death Disco will provide an alternative escape for an audience looking to indulge in top of the range cocktails and excellent music from across the decades.

Speaking about the new venue, Hyde & Co founder Nathan Lee said: “Bristol has arguably always had one of the most dynamic nightlife cultures in the country, and we’ve always had this idea bubbling away in the background. So when the venue arose we knew it was the right spot.

“We want to provide a totally inclusive space; somewhere between a cocktail bar and a nightclub, where people can enjoy great music and excellent drinks, and experience something a bit different in the city, and we can’t wait to open the doors!”

Death Disco will be open to the public on Friday December 8 and will throw their first event on New Year’s Eve, which will incorporate live performances, DJs and cocktails. More information can be found out at
