Stokes Croft is a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood located in the BS2 postcode area of Bristol, England. It is situated just north of Bristol city centre and is known for its eclectic mix of independent shops, bars, restaurants, and street art. The area is home to many artists, musicians, and creatives, and has a reputation as being one of the most alternative and bohemian parts of the city. It is known for its lively nightlife, with a range of venues offering live music and club nights. Stokes Croft is also famous for its street art, with many buildings and walls decorated with colourful and thought-provoking murals and graffiti. The most well-known of these is probably Banksy’s “Mild Mild West” mural, which depicts a teddy bear throwing a Molotov cocktail at three riot police officers. Despite its vibrant atmosphere, Stokes Croft has a complex history and has faced a number of social and economic challenges over the years. In 2011, the area was the site of riots that broke out following a protest against the opening of a new Tesco supermarket. However, the neighbourhood has also been the focus of many community-led initiatives and regeneration projects, aimed at preserving its unique character and supporting its diverse population.
