There are some very small clubs and other huge venues that allow major events to be held."
"There's lots of nightlife. It can be quite pricey but there's a lot more to do than at most unis."

"There is a strip of bars called Call Lane in the city centre as well as all the pubs down Otley Road that form the Otley run.
