Personally, we don’t think you can go wrong with Pryzm on a Saturday night. It’s always busy, the outside area is as sociable as it gets, and there’s one room playing dance tunes whilst the other plays sing along’s and favourites from the 90s. They also have a comedy night you should check out.

German beer hall
If you’ve got friends visiting, it’s your birthday, or you just want to do something different and hilarious, then go to Bierkella. Heard of Oktoberfest? It’s kind of like a mini one of those. You can spend the whole night there or just stay until 11pm, then Mill Lane and the clubs on St Mary Street are less than five minutes walk away. You’re sat on long tables with other people so it’s super sociable and so fun. Make sure you book!
