These nightlcubs are situated all in one complex making people even lazier.

The Glasshouse is a modern cafe bar offering indoor and outdoor seating, with regular live music nights which consists of a DJ downstairs playing varied music. They also sometimes have gig’s upstairs with well known DJ’s.
During the day this place changes to a cafe where you can chill as you sit outside enjoying the weather and watching the people go by.
It is a good location for the day time but at night it is slightly off the track.
Situated in the heart of Earlsdon, this Wetherspoons pub looks more traditional than some of the others in the same chain. The bar staff are friendly and polite and there is a large seating area around the back with patio heaters which is fine to sit out in from early springtime onwards. There is a large dining area which is popular with families, due to its prices and good value. Very good if you’re after a cheap pint in decent surroundings.
This is at the top end of the Wetherspoon pub range, more bar than pub and great to stay there for a whole night with dj and space to dance on the downstairs floor. Drinks are very cheap which makes for a very popular place with all types of people. It is key to note that they tend to show all the big matches on large TVs and also do events such as quiz nights and karaoke.
Food here is also of good quality and prices, with early opening for breakfast.
Sunday to Wednesday: 9 am to 1 am
Thursday to Saturday: 9 am to 2 am
The Inn dates back to the 17th century but has been substantially reconstructed around the turn of the last century, Its widely believe to stand on the site of 15th century Coventry mint, nowadays it’s a lively student pub with live music and is open to 2am
Dress Code: Not to strict i would expect
it is a local pub with variety of drinks. Located on historical Whitefriars Street, Phoenix is one of the typical English pubs in city. It has been highly recommended to have a visit. As it is across the road of Coventry University most of the people are from University. Opening hours are from 11 am to 11 pm Monday-Saturday. 10:30 Sunday. Prices of drinks are reasonable.
I am a student at the University of Warwick and my project is to create an informational web site about nightlife in the Coventry area.
So, if you are interested, you can visit it at the following url:
This side of Coventry City Centre is about 10 mins walk from the SkyDome complex but also very lively. More suited if you prefer a Pub night out rather than a Club night out.
You have Pizza Express so that you can line your stomach first, then within the same 5 minute radius, you have excellent and lively pubs such as: Varsity, Lloyds, Yates', Golden Cross, Newt & Cucumber and Browns.
Dress Code: Most are fine with smart but casual and are OK with blokes wearing jeans. I would recommend that you fellas should stick with shoes as opposed to trainers, you never know what mood the bouncers are in or how generous they are feeling... Do you ever? Anywhere?
Great security for you girlies out there. Apparently, the SkyDome complex alone has more CCTV cameras than the whole of Coventry City Centre.
Plus, with 3 clubs, 2 bars and a pub all in the same location, it makes it easier to crawl from one establishment to another.
Diva and Ikon are linked. Ikon is a more dance environment, Diva is more chart music and note, 25 and over. I love that I have been asked for ID a few times there! If you get into Bond's Bar before 10.30, then you get free entrance into Diva. (obviously, Bonds is also over 25s only). If you pay to get into Diva, you automatically have access to Ikon, but not the reverse. Does that make sense?? My brain aches now...
Dress Code: Orange House - Pub. No definate dress code as far am I'm aware, but nost people move onto one of the other bars or clubs aftwards and so most people go smart but casual or all out smart (or tarty)
I would say smart but casual for the whole complex, but bear in mind that Diva and Bonds is smart dress only, the guy I was with was refused entry because he was wearing jeans (even though they were very smart jeans). I'm not sure if girls can get in wearing jeans, not risked it myself.
Jumpin' Jaks is a lot more relaxed on attire. Unfortunately, that also seems to apply to clientele too. Lots of letching males (not locals), not that unusual to get groped in there.
Well you can go wherever takes your fancy as there is so much to offer. However we usually go to the Showcase Cinema. In the sama space there is Pizza Hut, Bowling, etc. It's great because that place offers you almost everything and it's all nicely put together, you can even go shopping there!
It has everything and you won't get bored. There is even lazer shooting!
Dress Code: Casusal and a little dressy but remember if you go bowling don't where a new top because you usual get oil on it which is quite hard to get off!
Lots of them depending on what you feel like doing at the time.
Good nightclubs include Icon and Diva at the SkyDome.
Other good nights out include Scholars (Far Gosford Street) and Scream (Gosford Street).
For theatre we have the Belgrade Theatre and the Butts College.
And we have cinema screens at the SkyDome and the Showcase.
There's often live music at the Colosseum as well many of the city's pubs,
The Arts Centre offers live music, theatre, cinema and exhibitions.
Whatever you like there's usually something happening that will appeal to everyone's tastes.
In the summer months and at Christmas / New Year there are also a number of outdoor events organised in the city.
