    depends what you're into really, we got asked last night where was good by a group of lads who were in notts, but we weren't sure where to tell them as they got refused entry to rock city and pit and pendulum as they didn't fit in with the dress code... i didn't even know there was one at P&P! Same with rescue rooms, but I think they just said they didn't like it there.

    anyway, i don't tend to go to clubs, we stick to pubs but nottingham has some amazing pubs... just wander around and you'll find some as we have loads. Notts has some of the best night life in the country in my opinion, I love it here, I'm so annoyed I have to move to go to uni but I don't want to live at home for uni either! Theres loads of clubs and my friends love it, but im more of a pub person- which is equally as good. The mainstream places in town tend to be around the square and the cornerhouse cinema, so if you stay around there until you find your feat I don't think you'd go wrong.

    Nottingham is a brilliant place to be a student for nightlife. you'll find out when you get there, you won't be disappointed. Re: the 'ladies' situation, the old myth about there being far more women than men in the city of nottingham sadly hasn't been true since the lace industry collapsed. again ,though, don't worry, you wont be disappointed.

    There's loads of student nights in the clubs in town that everyone goes to - a typical week may look like this:

    Monday - Oceana
    Tuesday - Ocean (perhaps go to Tantra before)
    Wednesday - Isis/Media (although Isis is hugely popular)
    Thursday - Faces
    Friday - Ocean

    I've not taken into account any places like rock city/cookie club etc because they're not places i go to. On the weekend loads of people do campus 14, or go to the Ark. xx

    Media has closed (for the time being at least) due to licensing issues.

    Indeed. Mode are getting perilously close too.

    In the last round of test purchasing, 50% of pubs/clubs failed (Including the Bag o' Shite ), and Inspector Paul Winter is getting VERY narky about the whole situation.

    When the new Best Bar None scheme comes into force, I can see them trying to make Pubs/Clubs ID everyone who looks under 30.

    Don't worry mousey, AU will be back at their spiritual home next year.

    Sounds like you're one of those that *just* go to student nights?! WHY?! There's far more better places to go than these student nights every night; and it's the same drunken crowd/same music every week! Student nights are good in moderation, but I wouldn't say go to one every night, every week.

    There are far better places out there that don't just play cheesy 70s/80s and chart music; where you can have a good night without some tanked up student starting a fight.

    Rock city's pretty good on a Thursday night, or of that's not your scene, Market Bar for a hip/hop, funky house night and of course, Stealth for your trance/dance/electronica. My best piece of advice is don't just stick to the student nights - you will end up getting completely sick of them after a while! Go around and explore, there's always something better about!

    PS: Ocean two nights a week?! Why?!

    No, they're both Nottingham nights. Trent is either Monday or Wednesday I think.

    Not as far as the Police are concerned. Trent on Tuesdays have averaged 9 reportable incidents a week. Nottingham on Mondays have averaged 2.

    Trent SU have been warned they may lose the night at Oceana.
