Oxfordshire Nightlife

  • Nightclubs

    Oxford Nightlife

    Park End is probably the best place to go if you want fairly mainstream 'dance' music, AND R&B, AND cheesey-music-since-the-50's! It's got three rooms playing each of these categories of music, plus a balcony overlooking the main room, which is the mainstream-dance room. There's not usually too much aggro here either. It's also got about 5 bars,...

  • Pubs & Bars

    Oxford Nightlife

    "The Fir Tree" is a great typically English pub - decorated with everything that the owners could find, crowded, overheated and with its own special charme. Prices are lower than in the city centre bars, and the atmosphere is nicer. Interestingly, "The Fir Tree" is also very international. It's rather uncommon that you do not hear at least one...

  • Theatre

    Oxford Nightlife

    We saw the Oxford Playhouse across the street when we visited the Ashmolean Museum, and decided it would be a nice and cultural way to spend one of our evenings in Oxford. On the Oxford Playhouse webpage we read that a wide range of live performances are presented there, incuding British and international drama, family shows, contemporary dance...

  • Concerts

    Oxford Nightlife

    If you are visiting during University term time then look out for the Uni a capella groups. They perform regularly all over town and there should be posters in colleges and the Covered Market. The best are Out of the Blue. Awesome covers of modern rock and pop plus barbershop and some classical. If you get to go it will make your trip! Come as...

  • George Street

    Oxford Nightlife

    George Street is Oxford's busiest nightlife area, with a mix of restaurants, pubs, clubs, late night bars, cinemas and theatres. Though the University dominates much of the city, its influence is less felt here (apart from all the students in the aforementioned night-spots of course!)

  • Park End Nightclub

    Definitely the best of a poor bunch of clubs in Oxford. Each night is slightly different but are mostly very mainstream and cheesy. Good for dancing, best when drunk. Drinks very cheap on Mondays and Wednesdays (beer £1 a pint). Nothing too outrageous. Trainers and jeans normally OK. Bouncers have been known to be rude and sometimes racist, but...

    .....and daylife as well, please.....Not a particular place, but more of an independent ratings list of ALL of the PUBS inside the ring-road (142 of them at the last count!), painstakingly researched again and again over the past 5 years or so.To save space you can view them at this site:http://www.earth.ox.ac.uk/~chrisw/pubindex.htmlMy particular...

    nigth life ends very early as in every other place in england.Pubs are good for an early start to drink then u may close the nigth at the discos.But don't forget that drinks(other then beer) and cigarets are expensive

  • 5th Avenue

    Love it or hate it, as a student at Oxford, you will inevitably end up here. The good side is that you tend to know the majority of the people there, the bad side is, it's Filth (literally - the name students have christened this fine establishment). As a none student, you may have trouble getting in on a week-day without STudent ID. Be prepared...

  • For clubbing, head for one of...

    For clubbing, head for one of the following: The Studio, Park End, the Zodiac, The Bridge...Often playing cheesy music, these are a great night out if you've had a bit too much to drink! You need a student card for some of the nights (Studio: Tuesday, Park End: Weds, Zodiac: Mon, Weds, Thurs, Bridge: Thurs), so if you don't have one it's probably...

  • The Isis

    The Isis is a pub directly located at the river thames. In summer it is a great place to go out, sit under trees and enjoy a beergarden atmosphere. You have to walk there for about 10 minutes. This means there are no cars, no noise, except for the rowing teachers on their bikes who pass by regularly and shout instructions to their students sitting...

  • The Park End club.

    This has to be the biggest and most popular club in Oxford. There are various rooms with all kinds of music playing, although generally a bit cheesy, there's nice atmosphere and its a good laugh! Anything goes except for trainers.

  • Turf Tavern

    A 13th century pub, with the low ceilings to prove it (watch your head). Built against the ruins of the city wall. Has a great patio for those warm summer nights. It's a pub...dress however you want.
