    As always there are two elements to a students night out, the Bars, and the Clubs.

    Bars

    Sheffield isn't short of them.

    Start in Broomhill

    Hall Bar
    My usual choice was Endcliffe Bar, cheap pint/snakebite and move on.

    Fox & Duck
    Union owned bar, can sometimes get some locals in, but is the official pre-bar for Gatecrasher One on a Monday night.

    The York
    Scream Bar, don't forget your Yellow Card (£1 start of the Year), for discounted drinks/food.

    The Broomhill Tavern
    Nice little pub, good friendly mix of town/gown.

    The Place
    Directly opposite the Tavern. Quite a nice one.

    The South Sea
    Scream Bar; see The York; this one is hidden away, and I didn't become aware of its existance for quite a while.
    Used alot by the Tapton residents on the way down into the city.

    Head down the hill towards the University. (Stop in at "The Broomhill Friary" for the best local chippy)

    Nottingham House
    On Glossop Road, on the way down the hill. Quite local, but has a bit of a beer garden for the nice nights out.

    Bar One
    Union building. Cheap shots and pints always available. Have a game of pool.


    OK so now you'll be at University tram stop.

    West Street

    I can't remember every bar on West Street, here's a few studenty ones.

    The Cavendish
    Scream Bar; see York re Yellow Card; this Scream Bar however unlike the York is HUGE compared.

    Varsity
    Don't forget your V-Card (£1 for the Year) for cheap drinks offers (about 25 % off), based on 2 floors, and has a huge widescreen projector screen for sports/music videos. Busy, but very good for a night out.

    The Swim Inn
    Shhhhh. Weatherspoons.

    Walkabout
    Australian sports bar, ours is good, live music a few nights a week, two floors, the usual mix of many TV screens, showing different channels, and a wide variety of music. Don't forget your SWOT Card for discounted drinks.

    Devonshire Quarter
    Street running parallel to West Street.

    Vodka Revolution
    Never before have you tasted such a wide variety of Vodkas. Certainly try the six-stick (£8 for 6 shots), don't just have the same shot all the way along. This place also serves some of the wildest cocktails.

    Frog & Parrot
    Home of the legendary, former world record holding, Worlds Strongest Beer, the Roger & Out (circa 15 %), that they can only serve in 1/3rd pint glasses.
    Drink three in a night and you get a certificate, this one is only for the die-hard ale fan as I didn't like the first sip.
    Also had an offer on 10 Vodka & Red Bulls for £10 this year which wasn't bad.

    Yates'
    Always popular, ever faithful.


    Many many more worth a mention, but I just can't be bothered ! More information on Sheffield Pub Guide, search the City Centre area.

    Clubs

    Sheffield Union
    Speaks for itself, very often NUS only. As far as I can think there is a night for everything. Frouk (Friday) in the Sheffield Octagon (capacity 1500), with Official Pre-Bar in Bar One (SUSU) is my particular favourite.
    Sheffield University Students Union

    Gatecrasher One
    Crasher is the home of UK clubbing, and hosts the official Union night on a Monday. Well worth a look. Good night out.
    GC1 site under re-construction

    Kingdom
    I like Kingdom, purely for Monday night Vodka Revolt. 2 rooms, one for clubbing, where it gets extremely busy, and hot, and a second, busy, but not as, room, for happy party sorta stuff. The rest of the week at Kingdom is worth a go, and if you want to cause trouble go on a Wednesday and take the Uni bashing Hallam AU night on the chin !

    Kingdom Nightclub

    Corporation
    Alternative venue. Home of some rock and metal, indie, hip-hop, ska etc across 3 rooms. If alternative is your sort of scene, then theres normally something being played in one of the 3 that you'll enjoy.

    Also now home to Skool Disco on a Wednesday night. If you want a fun St Trinians night, this one is a good laugh. (Free entry in St Trins wear)

    Corporation

    Leadmill
    Venue is a great night out, 3 rooms; Monday night SHAG is worth a night, as is Vodka Nationwide on a Wednesday, Thursday night FAB is Pop, Friday night Royale/Risque is classy. Genuinely can't say much of a bad word against it.

    Leadmill Nightclub

    Spearmint Rhino's Gentlemen Club


    Certainly always worth a visit for a laugh - and if you've got a lass along with you make sure she's game for a laugh too.

    Admission: £10

    Topless dance: £10
    Nude: £20

    This is not some seedy strip joint; by far the more classy and beats the Dancing Dollar in Attercliffe hands down.

    You'll find it Spearmint Rhino right opposite the brand new Hallam Union which should be in use this year; it was the National Centre for Popular Music, which flopped - it'll make a Union worth visiting, as their current one is a dive !!

    Obviously 18+ only.

    Don't try to go in there totally hammered. And most importantly DON'T TOUCH

    The Broomhill Tavern
    Nice little pub, good friendly mix of town/gown.
    My 2nd favourite pub on the planet. Tuesday night quiz and Open The Box are highly endorsed.

    (Original post by Expression)

    Endorsed by Ainsley Harriot as his favourite chippy. I agree.

    I think they've stopped selling Roger & Out. Last time I was in there my mate asked and the guy seemed to think they wouldn't be selling it any longer.

    Between the Arena, the Octagon, Corp, and the events that the Union brings in, I'm sure you'll find some good events to keep you occupied.

    Don't forget the Hallam area of Sheffield on Ecclesall Road.

    Hogs Head
    At the top end of ecclesall road where you can start the evening with a quiet beer.

    Champs
    Lively sports bar with lots of TVs.

    Varsity (used to be Slug and Lettuce)
    In house DJ on most nights.

    Pomona
    Home of the famous tuesday night karaoke!.

    heres a few more................... some to go to and some to avoid!.......

    WEST STREET

    BRB's (greatest pizzas and good bar at night)
    V Bar (average bar)
    Muse (no been much but is kinda small but chilled)
    Takapuna (great for a meal or a quiet drink in the bar downstairs then upstairs is a bar and dancefloor highly reccomend this one)
    Taquila bar (fairly new is very funky has a little dance floor also has a small area to sit and eat.)
    Bar S1 (drinks are overpriced and often dont tatse very strong so not highly reccomended)

    also in town

    bar Matrix (good for a drink before staggering to gatecrahser one, is a classy bar with good coctails on offer)
    Empire bar (not fantastic but is fine for cheap drinks and a dance)
    Solar bar (pretty expensive and a bit away from all the main bars and clubs in town but is a classy underground type bar and restaurant also good for coke heads)

    devonshire green area

    Old fire station (not been much but is a decent size pretty dark inside though)
    Bar Hush (very small white seats expensive drinks and drum and bass music it seems to be, so not great)


    so there is a few more as well as the others mentioned im sure im forgetting some, but these are the kind of places i tend to go to......

    Best cocktails in Sheffield = Vodka Revolution
    Best pub = Fox and Duck
    Best cheesy night out = Pop Tarts at the Union
    Best cheap night out = Anything at the Leadmill!
    Best food at a good price = BRB's on a Tuesday when pizzas are 2 for 1
    Best food when parents are paying! = Hanrahans, Glossop Rd

    There you go, that's my expert advice which has taken 4 years to build up! To all the new freshers, enjoy - Sheffield is the best place!

    Actually I would disagree with you...monday, wednesday or friday nights at corporation beat any club for their cheapness... £1 for a double vodka and mixer! Plus some pretty damn good music if you know which room to be in at what time. The best part about corp however is seeing loads of people you know. You can wander around on your own and you can bump into so many people. It's great for going to regularly.

    Monday - £3 entry, free before...9:30, 10? I always forget. £1 double vodka all night plus other cheap drinks I don't drink, but it's sooo cheap.
    Wednesday - never been on a wednesday! :eek: My bad...I have been meaning to. Apparently quite a lot of fun, plus they've opened up a rock room upstairs so it's got even better. *mental note to self to get her ass down to corp on a wednesday at some point*
    Friday - £1 entry before 10, £5 after. £1 double vodka only till 10:30 so be sure to get em in quick
    Saturday - some kind of goth kind of affair which I've never dared to venture to. Apparently this night is pretty pricey and it's where they make their money up as it's mostly older people that go. So, unless you're into that kind of thing...don't.

    Plus, they do a great milkshake... strawberry/malibu, chocolate/southern comfort and some others for £1.60. You gotta try mmmm.

    Sadly, I'm moving away to York but there's always the holidays...and I'm going to have a great time in York I hope! (I'm not big into the commercial dance club crap) Every now and again I went to leadmill, their indie nights are pretty good :cool: tho of course, I don't know Sheffield as a uni student...but I envy you people coming here, it's a great city. If I didn't live in Sheffield I'd be applying here but I just needed to move away.

    Wednesday night "Skool Disco" then.... it's only cos they give free admission to anyone in proper St Trinians dress, so there has to be some Dress Code / threshold for getting in free.

    Jumping the queue and getting freebies courtesy of sneaking in on the Halifax Hall guest list is highly recommended.
