The Fresh Meat Guide to Nottingham Nightlife

Monday

You’re eager to hit the town after a dry Sunday night. You’ve got two options:

Coco Tang, the one club in Notts where you feel like you really should put the effort in and don a dress and heels. Because when you’re paying a fiver for a drink, you might as well look like you can actually afford it…

But you soon realise the idiocy of wearing heels to a nightclub where 80% of the floor space is stairs or uneven dance floor. You feel like Coco Tang is slightly mocking you…

Of course, if you’re feeling a bit more mainstream, there’s always Oceana. It’s got it all, from questionable R&B…

to shameless cheese…

Tuesday

Marketbar. A decent night if you can handle wrestling your way through the crowd, which will be primarily men, wondering where all the girls are at…

Wednesday

Ah, Crisis. One of those nights that it’s just OK to spend half the nights in the toilets with your friends, looking a bit like this…

and to wake up in the morning looking a bit like this…

Because despite the fact half the Uni’s male sports teams turn up looking on top form…

Crisis has this kind of effect on a girl…

Thursday

Gold Teeth at Bodega. In fact, anything at Bodega. Who can say no to a smoking area with fairy lights? (Hey, it doesn’t MATTER if you don’t smoke!)

Friday

We all know there’s only one place to be on Friday. The Big O.

You either love it or hate it. If you hate it, you’re probably there anyway, quietly thinking…

And if you love it, your only excuse is…

But whichever side of the fence you’re on, all Ocean-goers can unite when that familiar tune comes on…

Saturday

In an effort to nurse your musical prestige back to health after last night – it’s Stealth time. Now remember kids…

Oh, and you WILL be slightly intimidated by locals who look like this…
