Our café bar is a bright, airy and contemporary venue offering a wide variety of light snacks, pastries, sandwiches, soft and alcoholic beverages; open to our members and the general public throughout the day and across the full calendar year.
Our nightclub is a premium evening destination that caters to our core student market through exclusive student nights offering high quality entertainments at affordable prices during the week, and to the general public through club nights, independent events and private bookings.
The nightclub makes use of luxe, comfortable furnishings offset against contemporary fixtures in a predominantly industrial setting, alongside premium spirits and beverages, that will distinguish itself from other venues in the town centre.
