The Old Duke is a world renown Jazz pub located in Bristol, England, known for our jam packed bar, wonderful staff and incredible atmosphere. We host live music every night of the week, our specialities include Jazz, Blues, Country, Soul and Funk. Entry is always free.

Enjoy some Traditional Jazz on Monday evenings, Friday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. You will hear our beloved Trad regulars referred to as 'The Bog-enders' for their tendency to sit at the end of the bar where the loos (and the best views) are. Sunday afternoons are great for family outings, children and well behaved pets are welcome.

Tuesday evenings are Open Mic Night. Run by our amazing resident Blues artist Eddie Martin, you will witness a selection of wonderful and unusual acts. A free drink for each performer, arrive early if you would like to sign up.

Eddie Martin plays every Sunday evening with The New Eddie Martin Blues Band, aside from the last Sunday of the month where you will find him performing as the amazing Eddie Martin's One Man Blues Band.
