A breath of fresh air for Bristol city centre when it opened (7 or 8 years ago?) and provided something different for the lunch crowd, and it just keeps getting better.
The lunch-time food offering that first drew me in has never relented in its quality - fresh, simple ingredients, well-cooked, at great prices - and the expansion of the venue and the gradual move into evening entertainment has worked well, drawing in a vibrant crowd a far cry from a lot of what's otherwise available in the area.
Other reviews that knock entrance charges and steep prices are fair enough, but you get what you pay for, and this is certainly worth paying for.
Mr Wolf's can get a bit crammed sometimes due to its enduring popularity. This is mostly due to thedecent food and great music they have there, including the "Devil Kick's Dance Hall" cabaret on Thursdays and a very friendly open mic on a Wednesday, hosted by Jonah Flatfoot of brilliant local band, the Zen Hussies.
Beware of entrance charges, however, and expensive drink prices.
Mr Wolfs reminds me of the apres ski environment. It has an ecliptic mix of people that ooze a range of styles and coolness.
The food is great, the drink good and of course the live music kicks you, slaps you, lifts you and entertains.
Relax and get in...
Mr. Wolfs is one of the best places in Bristol for three reasons:
1. Lots of Live music, there seems to always be something happening there!
2. Late opening, whatever time you roll out of the nearest club you can pretty much always depend on Mr. Wolfs to be open and full of interesting people.
Keeping to Mr Wolf's promise of supporting the best of local music, every Wednesday an open mic is put on in this very popular noodle bar/nightclub in the centre of town. As with all open mic nights, the quality of the music is often quite varied - however the few times I've been recently the standard of musicality has been quite high. For a Wednesday night it's a good place for a lively but not overly crowded drink. The host of the night, Jack, has a house band who picks the pace up should the music from the others have got a little bit stale - and they really know how to do that with their jazzatronic musical skills. If you're in town on a Wednesday and don't want to go to any appalling club nights (mentioning no names beginning with P...) then this is really good option.
This is probably one of the coolest places to go for an open mic night, what with the noodles and cocktails providing refreshments while a host of local singers and songwriters show off their musical creations. It's really well run; with loads of people wanting to play, and if you're one of those people, the promoter Jack will be really friendly and welcoming. The quick turnover of acts means the night doesn't become boring, and there's always a DJ and dancing afterwards. A perfect place to enjoy that midweek drink. Entry is also free on a Wednesday.
We not call it 'the good old reliable Mr Wolfs', because that's exactly what it is. With a fine selection of funky fresh and old time beats, this late night bar is without a doubt one of the most popular more underground bars in the city. Lots of dancing, lots of smiles, Mr Wolfs is the old reliable.

I was at mr. wolfs last night and it was open mic night. The place is great for a late night drink and some chatting. The food looked amazing and we had tapas to go along with the drinks (free! the tapas not the drinks). Very young crowd but lively. Central location and the drinks weren't too badly priced.
One of my favourite music venues in Bristol, Mr Wolfs, is small, dark and a little grotty - everything a good music venue should endeavour to live up to. This popular music bar is open until late, offering drinks, live music and noodles!
Mr Wolf's is a flamboyant social outing, perfect for seeing some great live music and DJs. It is the creme de la creme for local acts. Good tasty noodles with a variety of different recipes, and variations. Great atmosphere, cosy but with a dance floor to get your groove on. At the weekend jam packed so be prepared for the crush.
Rocking atmosphere. Good music (open mic night) and yummy noodles. Gets very busy. Could do with a clean and avoid the loos but still worth going for the buzz alone:)
