Is Monday the worst day of the week? Almost definitely. But it doesn’t have to be.

So, here's nine things to do on a Monday night in Bristol.

Gin and musical jam: what could be better? Mr Wolf’s weekly open stage night is happening every Monday night until Summer 2020, kicking off at 21:00.
Hosted by a friendly bunch of resident musicians, the night culminates into one big open jam. Head down for great music, and stay for late-night DJs and drink deals.
Bunch of Japes: Stand Up Comedy Night @ Smoke & Mirrors
Want to see brand-new material from some of the country’s best stand-up comedians – at a fraction of the usual cost?
Well, now you can. Every week, Smoke & Mirrors’ weekly Bunch of Japes comedy night welcomes budding and established comics alike to test out brand-new material.
In the past, the bar has seen the likes of Romesh Ranganathan, Alan Carr and Jayde Adams perform at a Bunch of Japes comedy night. (Yes, really!)
A chance to get ahead of the comedy curve, Bunch of Japes is a no-brainer for Bristol-based fans of stand-up.
