Preston has a load of great nightclubs, but we may as well start with the one you’ll be chanting the name and falling down the steps of come the end of your Freshers’ week – Roper Hall. A favourite amongst students and regulars, Roper is cheap, cheerful and fun, playing some great music and the only place to meet your fellow student pals.
If you fancy a more traditional, town centre club then try Squires New York New York, or Lava & Ignite, both modern, popular clubs with plenty of floors and lots of great music played by some top DJ’s. Or try Warehouse on St John’s Place. Three floors of popular Indie and rock music that make it Preston’s best alternative nightclub, once favoured by Joy Division. Get there before 11pm on a Friday and Saturday if you like your music “Up to 11” loud.
A new student night fresh for 2010 is The Pound Party at Rumes every Wednesday night. At just £1 for entry, £1 for drinks and even just £1 for a hotdog at the end of the night, it’s undoubtedly one of the cheapest nights you’ll find anywhere and promises to get you absolutely leathered on a tenner.
Preston has some of the best pubs in the North West. The most popular for students is the Adelphi at the top of Friargate, a large and busy student pub with a good heated beer garden. From there you can head down the road on a crawl via the Dog and Partridge, Lamb and Packet and Greyfriars before checking out the string of trendy bars that line the street towards town such as Cafe Manyana, The Academy, Reflex (80’s pub/club) and Assembly. Or you can check out the terrific smaller pubs which line the Plungington student area - each with their own guest ales and ridiculously hard quiz nights!
