Only a few seconds in and I started laughing. Some footage of people just sitting there eating or working with the caption 'Lively Atmosphere', haha.
Yeah... bear in mind that the video was shot in the day. I've seen them bars a LOT livelier than that!

Someone should do a video showing Massive Mungoes or something. That'd be better.:yep:

I only ever liked going to the works on student nights. If you go other nights it's not the same atmosphere.
Also the Cuban is a funny place, party for the wrong reasons. It is filled with uncomfortable looking forty year old men and women grinding against each other. The music is kind of repetitive, but I found myself starting to enjoy it more and more, I was drinking more and more though

I like it because it reminds me of home, there's a place like that that I used to go to a lot so it's slightly nostalgic for me. :o:

Ah, yeah. The Works is only good on a student night. I went on a Saturday - biggest mistake of my life. Felt like I was gonna get stabbed by the Canterbury massive. I've been to the Cuban once, it felt like some business meeting. Haha.

Ps. Just saw your profile, you're Rosie's friend, right?

FYI, The Works has a student night on Weds to and it's better than Monday night, but because The Venue is popular on Weds nights no UKC students really brave it.
Chill has a student night on Monday, and the drinks are cheap then, - sat is expensive BUT, you can sometimes print off vouchers that get you in free and give you a free drink. Friday nights at Chill are pretty good!
Studio 41 also has cheap nights on a Monday (SOAP) and every week is a themed week. I think SOAP is the cheapest monday night, £1 drinks etc. Remember you can get the bus into town until about half 10/11 pm! Hope this helps!

I've never had a cocktail on campus.

But in town there's Tacos Locos, which is a Mexican restaurant, and they have quite a big cocktail menu (and they're good). There's also the Cuban, which is a bar and restaurant. You can see their cocktail menu here:
http://www.thecuban.co.uk/bar.html

There are probably other places, but those are two that immediately come to mind.

Sunday-Thursday they do brilliant deals too, usually 2-4-1s etc

Cocktails are really inconsistent there though. Clearly not all the staff are good at it!

Are you talking about the Cuban or Tacos Locos? If the latter then I'd agree...also went to a brilliant Ladies Night (2 for 1 cocktails) and then went back the next week and it was boring and restauranty :erm:


Kent makes cider?! Where'd you find that?
Yes, I've been stalking your profile. We also have 4 mutual friends on Facebook, but none of them are people :iiam: :ninja:

:lurk:

:p: Yeah, that sorta thing.

I was really disappointed, coming from Somerset, to see a distinct lack of cider in Kent! And, because you make that stuff sound so appealing, I think I'll have to give it a go!

And yeah, Tacos Locos is kinda weird. I think it depends a lot on who's working. There are some lads who're a bit younger than the rest of the staff and are pretty up for a party! But otherwise it's boring and restauranty.

Here's a review I did of the Cherry Tree, a proper popular student pub

There's also a bunch of other reviews of places in Canterbury on that website, but I don't recommend reading them because I personally f-ing hate that P.O.S company and their staff. :ahee:
