The general hours of these establishments is Fridays and Saturdays is 21:30 till 02:00 local time. One or two venues open till later, and some open weekdays as well.

Depends if you want cheaper or more expensive but with atmosphere! Yates and BL1 are popular but expensive both have small dance-floors. Varsity attracts a young and very varied crowd. If you like cocktails try Harveys Cafe Bar. Whetherspoons (aka spinning mule) is the place for cheap drinks, but doesnt play music - good place to meet at the start of the night.

The real ale houses remain The Howcroft, Sweet Green Tavern, Man and Scythe and the Hen and Chickens
