Casino Nighclub Guildford: Casino Nighclub = awfull....
I was there Saturday 22nd June 2013 and I struggled to get in the vibe as the DJ was absolutely appalling, I thought I was at a kids party gone wrong! The drinks are extremely overpriced, your looking at around £7 for a malibu and coke filled to the top with ice! A member of the bar staff assualted an innocent young girl right infront of my eyes (and everyone else's) by throwing the girl's drink in her face and also the glass it was in. The door staff are rude and obnoxious and the manager is a complete perv and offered to let me and my friends in for free in return for you don't want to know what!! It's safe to say i am appalled and wouldnt reccomend this nighclub to my worst enemy.

where to go... and not to go!
pubs here aren't open late, but are good quality.
--the star at the bottom of high street caters for the slightly rowdier student crowd and occasionally gets spontaneously redecorated by drunken patrons.
--the three pidgeons - also known locally as the three pigs, is half way up the hill
--head down to the weir to visit the britannia (fondly called scruffies).
--for pool tables, dart boards and televised football matches, you want the wooden bridge.
i would recommend avoiding the rowbarge down by the river wey, when i was there it was a rough(er) spot
Dress Code: most of these places are pretty laid back - i've walked into scruffies wearing a wetsuit.
Harpers: Trendy Surrey club
Harpers prides itself as Surrey's premier nightclub. The décor attempts to be trendy and features a podium as well as some sort marquee type of thing on the upper floor. The DJs on this floor play mostly new stuff (R'n'B, funky house and even electro at the end of the night). Downstairs playes mostly 80s and 90s hits.
There are 3 bars and a VIP Lounge which is also frequented by some celebrities.

Radio 2 Stage: AHA!!!
There are several stages at Guilfest and unfortunately some bands that you want to see will be appearing at the same time on another stage so it is just impossible to see everything. But we DID see "aha" and they were fab - especially the one song anyone actually remembered "Take on Me" :))
Dress Code: There is no dress code here - you can wear a suit and/or a bikini and no one will bat an eyelid - we saw grown men in pink tutus with fake boobies, skinny , gnarled old hippies in loin cloths, fat ladies in miniscule skirts - Goths who must have sweated pounds by being overdressed in heavy black gear - wear what you like - 'tis the nature of the festival.
Time: Crazy nights out in town
The club is formerly known as Cinderellas. It has full club facilities, 2/3 bars, centralised dance floor with walk round access (no need to annoy people dancing by walking through) although the dance floor is relatively small, attended cloakroom, friendly bar staff, comfy lounge area in one corner, security
Although not a massive club (200 capacity) it allows for a friendly, close night out. Drinks prices have stabilised at £2 a bottle £2-2,50 pint, making for a reasonably cheap drinking night out!
The club does not usually start getting busy before 11pm. Music ranges from chart stuff (funky house, bootie house or whatever they are called these days) dance, R’n’B, UK Garage and dance classics (awful 90s stuff) to occasional hard house and hip hop tracks.
Admission around £10
Dress Code: Bring your id - not kidding.
The Pimms Bus: All aboard!!
The Pimms bus. This is an oh so definitely English experience - Pimms for a start is the epitome of the English Summer in a glass and the Pimms people have taken the old Routemaster buses and turned them into bars - with drinks served downstairs and installed seating upstairs! They take them to the festivals and lay blankets and deck chairs outside so festival goers can relax in the sun with a long cool glass of this delicious fruity drink! It's just perfect! But Pimms doesn't come cheap - it's £3.50 per glass or £17.50 for a jug (about 5 glasses).
In the evening when the sun goes down it's fabulous to watch the festival proceedings and listen to the music from the top deck of the bus with friends.
Dress Code: Anything
White House: Nice bar staff, cute chicks
Good food, nice choice of beer, orderly interior, friendly service, great location. Upstairs and outside have views of the River Wey. Prices are slightly above average, but the location is worth it. Patrons vary from local tankard-lifters to the college crowd to city center professionals.
Dress Code: No dress code, but for the love of Pete: don't be a slob, OK?
- Beer Tasting
The Five & Lime: Funky bar funky people
The Five and Lime is a great little bar, nice and lively and pretty trendy. They have a heated court yard at the back with lots of greenery which makes it almost feel like a beach bar.. I say almost because you can't quite hear the sea!
They have a good selection of cocktails and shooters. Also during the day they serve some lovely food- try the chicken and sun dried tomato burger- its a winner!
The Royal Oak.: Old and comfortable
A very nice 17th century pub in a late medieval building that was originally part of the rectory of the Holy Trinity. Outdoor seating available. Serves lunch and evening meals.
Behind the churchyard of the Holy Trinity.
Three Pigeons Public House: Good old tradition
