    I will be celebrating my 18th birthday next month and two friends and I are spending a weekend in Nottingham to celebrate. We're there Thurs 16th - Sun 19th of Feb.

    Where do you suggest to go? I have never been to Notts before so don't have a clue where to go! We're staying in the travelodge in the center of town, so where should we go for drinks first? Then nightclubs etc?..

    Thanks guys!

    It all depends on what type of bar/club you want to go to. Here's a list of places I normally go to and its a variety places and usually depends on how I feel or if I fancy a certain drink that's cheaper in one place:

    Pit and Pendulum
    Rock City
    Squares
    Bla bla Bar
    Up Down Under
    Yates
    Lloyds

    That's just off the top of my head.

    Also are you going out on the Thursday, Friday or Saturday (or all three)?
    I ask this because if there is no Student events going on, Thursday is usually dead. I went some time in October with friends, and every where was closing up at 11 cause it was a ghost town.

    Some seriously classy venues there.

    What about the Waterfront? Or Lace Market? Or the Orange Tree or Malt Cross?

    Thursday dead?! Thursday is the main student night for me, Tuned at Rock City. Usually preceded by any combination of BZR, Cucamara's, Wetherspoons etc.

    We don't tend to want to go far from the square. Furtherest we'd go is Rock City

    Trust me, we went some time in October, and it was dead. We tried to go into some places at 11 and they didn't let us in cause they were closing, same with Rock City. We ended up staying in Walkabout for a couple of hours cause there was no were else to go. And even that was empty.
    Some nights can be busy, some not. Like I said, depends if there's any student events really.

    Why? The market square is chav central. All the best pubs and bars are round the edges of the city centre.
