You’ll find out the results of both rounds in the final issue of this academic year. If you want your favourite night to come out top, get voting!
If you feel you’ve perhaps heard enough of Nicki Minaj or ‘Stacey’s Mom’ in Nottingham clubs, Bodega should be your first stop. With nights such as Pop Confessional, Gold Teeth and Itchy Feet, there’s something for everyone at one of Nottingham students’ most popular alternative venues. It is also a well established music venue for up and coming acts in the Midlands. Past acts have included Lucy Rose and The History of Apple Pie.
Style and sophistication- two words that sum up the ambience of one of students’ favourite cocktail bars. It is a chance to get our your glad rags and nice shoes and sip on one of the unique cocktails that Coco Tang offers. Student favourites include ‘Death by Chocolate’ or the infamous ‘Lemon Dragon’- can you handle your absinthe?
Rock City is known locally as a venue that hosts some of the most prolific acts in the country. To most Nottingham students though, it is known as the host to Crisis, the university’s official ‘Jagerthon’. Every Wednesday Crisis opens its doors for students hoping to blow off some mid-week steam, or to socials held by AU clubs and societies.
The University’s Big O. Ocean is the Top 40’s home in Nottingham where you can throw your hands up in the air to the likes of One Direction or tear off your shirt in careless abandon as the drum roll of Baywatch descends upon the dance floor. On Friday nights you will see Nottingham students dance until the early hours of the morning- or until they’ve had enough Jagerbombs.
As well as a music venue and occasionally part of the large scale Crisis All Nighters and Indoor festivals that Rock City puts on, on its own Rescue Rooms offers eclectic and varied nights out for students with a variety of tastes. If Indie and Dubstep is your thing, then Stealth Vs Rescued is your calling. Singers and songwriters will want to seek out Rescue Rooms’ Acoustic Night on Mondays, where acts such as local musician Jake Bugg began his career.
