The Indie Bristol 'Indie Card'
There's so much going on in our cultural, creative and historic city and we want to make sure you are getting the absolute best out of it.
With a selection of much-loved independents, as well as undiscovered gems, the Indie Bristol card is your key to getting the most out of your city!
Bristol's Best Bits
Did you know that 99.3% of businesses were independent, small business at the last count? And Bristol is no different. 99.3% of Bristol's businesses are run by local people, for local people - and nothing contributes more to your local economy than spending in these establishments.
But do you know where these are? Who runs them? Or just exactly what you are missing out on? Here at Indie Bristol, we want to highlight the work local people and businesses are doing to provide fun, entertainment and opportunity in YOUR city.
Why go to Pizza Express when the local pizza parlour is just across the street? Why grab a heartless chain shop coffee when a local, cosy coffee shop is less than 100m away? All the money you chose to spend in global chain stores takes away from Bristol's economy and often it's simply just a case of knowing where to best spend your hard-earned cash.
The difference between a chain store coffee and your local, artisan cup is often as little as 50p, but we understand these little differences can add up. And here's how we are trying to help - Indie Bristol has bundled together a bunch of your favourite local, independent stores in one convenient place in a bid to level the playing field.
Indie Bristol's 'Indie Card' is the essential card to make the most of your time in the city - your local independent shops, bars, restaurants and events venues have signed up to give you access to special deals, discounts and savings that make it even easier to spend locally.
Be the breaker of chains. Shop indie!
