The Big Chill Bar is located on Small Street in Bristol city centre. The venue opened in 2009 as part of the Big Chill Group, the company behind the annual festival. The bar has a sister venue in London and serves food and coffee during the day, and is decorated with the design features of the festival in mind. There is a '70s kitchen-themed private hire room upstairs and a smoking garden. The bar is open Wednesday – Saturday with DJs playing hip-hop, reggae, soul, disco and house with most nights free to enter.
