    Nottingham in general is pretty damn good for nightlife I've heard. Not sure exactly about the urban music scene, but I'd expect there are places to cater for all tastes

    I think there's loads there. Tons of clubs in Notts, a lot of the student nights seem to focus on cheese though. xx

    Hey mousey, how are u? I'm doing maths. I originally applied 2 do maths and economics, but didn't get into that - they offered me maths instead though, so i accepted it.

    I've applied to Broadgate and Raleigh park! I wanted to go for self catering, so I went with these. Broadgate's my 1st choice though cause it's menta be much closer to the uni campus - I realllly can't do with travelling to lectures everyday!

    So what you doing at Notts?

    I live in Nottingham, going to Sheffield university in Sept, and there is a really good balance in the night life here. Whatever music your into. Loads of clubs do hip-hop/r&b nights you'l prob be going to Stealth quite alot, and hockleys prob the area with the most bars that focus more on that kinda music! Seriously though, your well catered for whatever music your into. Awesome night life!

    Nope travelling is not a fun thing, neither is cooking for yourself so i went for the Uni Park option. I'll be doing English hopefully if i get AAB. I should though, so i'm not too worried. Confident enough to order some books anyway. xx

    Nottingham Uni nights tend to have RnB rooms in the night clubs rather than nights. These in my experience have always been pretty popular.
    There are bars in the lace market end of town which do the garage thing, but icant think of there names of the top of my head.
    That style of music is definitly available in Notts though.

    You guys have got it all wrong. Nottingham music scene is awesome. Plenty of high quality drum n bass and hip hop courtesy of detonate and camoflage. The house music scene is very good aswell which is based at stealth. As venues go there are plenty with rock city, rescue rooms, stealth and ofcourse the legendary marcus garvey centre. Check out www.detonate1.co.uk www.stealthattack.co.uk or www.rock-city.co.uk
    Shame you freshers will miss out on sasha at stealth on sept 16th but watch out for soulwax and 2 many djs at stealth at the start of october.

    Wat u sayin skanz, safe for that! Very reassuring to hear that my tastes are catered for still....So can u recommend the best venues to check out (apart from what u mentioned already)?

    And yeah there's a works in London, in Kingston, thats heavy, especially on student nights so i would expect the same up there!!

    A bit surprising to hear about the lack of garage/grime though, the scene already has blown up big! ..Well in london anyway. Don't worry though, us London heads are gonna be bringing big tings to Nottingham lol.
