The Anvil is rock / metal bar in heat of Bournemouth and the hub of all things alternative in the town. We host as much live music as we can , up to 4 shows a week in our basement and have an upstairs bar with a rock / metal jukebox boasting a massive back bar with over 100 spirits, 12 draft products, as well as loads of bottles! We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and sense of community. Combined with our 5am licence and easy going staff we believe this makes us one of the premier rock bars in the UK.
In the past we have hosted bands such as Unearth, The Subways, Beartooth, Baby Godzilla, Conan, Viking Skull, Extreme Noise Terror, Spunge, Ulcerate , Sick on the Bus, The Agonist, Ricky Warwick, Sonic Boom Six, Elder, Marco Mendoza, Whitmore and loads more.
