JAVA, COCKTAIL BAR IN BRISTOL.

For those of you that remember Java, you will remember it as one of the best nightclubs in Bristol between the years 2010-2015. Unforunately, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.

This site now exists as a tribute website and we will also try to post monthly articles about what we are up to behind the scenes as well as what you can expect from Bristol nightlife in the future.

BRISTOL NIGHTLIFE NEWS


BRISTOLS PAM PAM FUCK BOY STARTER PACK MEME!

"I laughed so hard i pee'd a little, the relevance is uncanny to Bristol nightlife."


We all hate bouncers, they can be a massive ball ache at times but they are there for our safety.

But this lad just went way too far.
A video posted by THE TAB BRISTOL on Facebook (shown to the left of the image incase you are blind!) shows a young man no older than say 25 hitting a bouncer with a belt!! If any of this happened on a night out at Java back in the day I would hope that our bouncers would be a lot less friendly than these. Still, the man gets his just deserts and the bouncer quickly takes him down, with a cheeky little muay thai kick to the face for good measure.

However, this video epitomises what bouncers face on daily basis. Bouncers in Bristol nightclubs are often portrayed as the bad guy but would you like to do what they do for a living? I wouldn't that's for sure! Still, we have to give these bouncers props for keeping our bars, nightclubs and pubs in Bristol safe from these hooligan teenagers and 'roadmen' that are plagueing the streets of the city.

My friend who is a bouncer, Rick saw the video and said "This is just a glimpse of what bouncers have to go through on a daily basis. Its no easy job and at just £10.00 an hour you really have to ask yourself, is it worth getting hit repeatedly with a belt for this? This is why when Java closed down 2 years ago i didn't go to a different Nightclub in Bristol instead i looked at other career paths and i am now a teacher. I can safely say that i have never been hit with a belt, yet anyway, haha."

I think Rick summed that up perfectly, don't whack bouncers with belts, they have feelings too.

With that being said, Lola Lo need to seriously consider getting new bouncers as they are now liable for charges. Even though the bouncer was provoked, the bouncer is clearly seeing stomping on the young man in question. Do you think he is in the right to do this? This is very questionsable and i am unsure whether you can justify hitting someone this hard when they are on the floor. Not sure how you guys feel about this but this is my two cents on the issue, if this happened in Java back in the day to be fair i change my mind, the bouncer would be sacked and we would not have him working in the club again. However, i've changed my mind once already and i suppose getting hit with a belt like that must have some sting to it. Please message us here with how you feel regarding this issue and if you were the bouncer in this situation how would you react?

Many of you on Facebook already said that you would 'fill his face in' or you would ban him from every nightclub in Bristol. If you know this mans name we would love to name and shame him as no one should be hit with a belt like this, however i also think the bouncer did not react in a professional manner. Please name and shame the person by contacting us on facebook or either fill out a form on our contact page, Thanks!

Peace out, hopefully we will post another article about Bristol nightlife next week, but don't hold me to that as i am not a great writer!
