• Bristol

We brought you a night bursting with fruity vibes and tropical sounds from some Bristol underground producers and djs. Featuring two tropical rooms of psychedelic tinged techno, minimal, house and some feline fine disco!

We raised a whopping £400! A big thank you to all the fantastic djs for smashing it out on the dance floor, you know who you are! Also to my talented decor lady, Fanni Duck, who transformed the basement in to a tropical paradise and my fruity photographer with her cap and back pack!!  

Put the lime in the coconut!

Basement 45 opened on Friday 27th February 2009. Located on Fogmore Street (underneath the Banksy on Park st) it was known formerly as the Mandrake.


The club is laid out over one level ,and, as the name suggests was originally used as cellars and Basements for the town houses on Unity street. For those that frequented the Mandrake at any point over the last 40 plus years that it has been open, you will have no doubt been struck, as we have by the character of the buildings and fantastic layout of the club, you may have been less struck by the condition of the toilets and general dated appearance of the venue.


We have fully updated the fixtures and fittings (particularly the toilets) as part of a thorough refurbishment. We have also updated the bars, DJ Booths, dance floors, seating and entrance way.


Basement 45 has a capacity of around 300 and has 2 bars and 2 dance floors. Musically the club is diverse with Saturdays ( "Bounce" ) being largely underground House and Electro and featuring the best local, national and international DJ talent. Recent guests include : Kelevra, Heavy Feet, Stupid Fresh, Jaimie Fanatic, Hijack, Foamo, Micky Slim, The Loose Cannons, The Young Punx, Basskleph, Mowgli and TV Rock . Also watch out for regular saturday events from Morph, Frequency, Duvet Vous, Soul Shaker, Ripsnorter and lovebug.Please see listings for full event details.
