Rough Trade

A celebration of music culture that resonates through the city

  • Music

The name Rough Trade has been synonymous with contemporary music culture since the late ‘70s, when the first store opened in London on the doorstep of punk. 

Forty years on, Rough Trade have made it to Bristol, bringing with them the full Rough Trade experience – this is not just any music store. This is a full-on celebration of music culture, complete with a store, café, bar and live performance room. 

Idles, Steve Lamacq and Django Django are just a few names to have already graced the stage since its 2017 opening.
