Thursday Night in Cardiff

TNT at Walkabout

Club night

MUB Says

One of the main student nights out during the week. Always guaranteed to be a messy, hilarious night out when drinks are only £1.80. There’s a cloakroom, taxi rank just outside, and it’s the closest club to Cardiff Central. The music playing is a bit of everything and never fails to keep you dancing into the early hours.

Live Lounge

Club night/live music/anything!

MUB Says

A long standing favourite, this is a night out that can be as massive or chilled as you want - live music, old school rock tunes and cheap drinks make Live Lounge a favourite among students and locals. A completely different vibe to other clubs and open until 4am, meaning that you may find yourself heading here if you aren’t ready to call it a night.

Quids in at Gassy Jacks


MUB Says

Drinks are a quid and that speaks for itself. Gassy’s feels a bit more upmarket than your standard student pub so it’s a nice place to spend a Thursday for cheap pre-drinks and good vibes. If there’s sport on then there’s plenty of screens for you to get your fix. Hungry? They also serve up classic, delicious pub grub at a student friendly price.
