The hugely popular St Nick’s Night Market is returning Bristol tonight Friday, 20th April after its initial date in March had to be calcelled due to the Beast From The East’s heavy snowfall.
However, those chilly days now feel like a lifetime away and the market will take place in Saint Nicholas Markets in the Old City in what is looking like a sun-soaked evening.
The event, which runs from 5-10pm, will feature live music, decks and DJs, award-winning street food, plenty of drinks and the chance to explore St Nick’s like never before. This is a guide to exactly what the evening has in store…
Food and drink
No good party is complete with some great food and drink, and fortunately St Nick’s has it covered.
There will be plenty of choice from street food traders throughout the evening, such as mac and cheese from Alp Mac, sweet Spanish churros, Indonesian bites from Enggis Kitchen and delectable dahls from Thali Cafe.
Source Cafe will also be holding a mini oyster festival, where those with a penchant for shellfish can enjoy at least six types of oysters while sipping on some Bloody Mary oyster shooters. The Harbour Hotel will also be offering a vegan a la carte special menu in its Jetty restaurant, while its Gold Bar will showcase a selection of vegan beers.
Drinks-wise, cocktails will come courtesy of Bristol Spirit, while Morewine will be serving up delicious wines and Dick Willows Cider will also be available.
The event will have two stages of live music; one outside Mr Wolf’s on St Nicholas Street and the other outside the registry office on Corn Street. Both are curated by the Mr Wolf’s team and will be pumping out beats perfect for warm sunny evenings.
The Ghetto Funk Allstars will also be playing the finest funk inside the St Nick’s glass arcade, while Paul Rowley will be spinning some reggae and laid-back beats.
Things to check out
If eating and dancing isn’t your sort of thing, you can indulge some calming yoga courtesy of Wild Wolf’s Yoga. The studio will be holding a three-hour drop-in session where you can try your hand at yin yoga.
The Radnor Rooms in St Nicholas Street is also another place where you can focus on your wellbeing amongst the liveliness of the rest of the event. Its wellbeing-focused marketplace will be packed full of therapists, health food, drinks, artisanal crafts and natural beauty products.
