(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There is a plethora of wonderful cocktail bars, all with their own unique characters and atmospheres. Freud's (a deconsecrated church) is particularly fun, hosting events such as Gin and Phonics several times a term. If clubbing is your thing then there is no lack of clubs, with favourites including Lava Ignite (Park End) on a Wednesday night and the infamous 'cheese floor' with all the guilty pleasures from your music library. The Ashmolean night-time events are something that shouldn't be missed and are always incredibly popular. There is also a fantastic theatre scene with budding actors and theatre technicians making the most of the freedom of shaping their own shows (alongside their degrees) before entering into that same world professionally."
