    ill be pissed so its all good,
    its inevitable ill start the night in walkabout and a wetherspoons but im after a reasonably priced alright club to wander too
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    There's a wetherspoons a few bars up from walkabout, the figure of 8. walkabout is open till 2 I think, most of the bars are. I don't really go to clubs but here's a few names: the works (cheesey meat market, expensive drinks)...snobs (indie music, sticky floor), air (overpriced club with big DJs in), ramshackle (indie music, very big, usually has drinks offers on), edwards (rock/goth..have never been there but that's where people who like Rock go)

    wheres ramshackle?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's at the academy, in the city centre opposite Toys R Us.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    apparently it's only on fridays, and the thing on next sat at the academy is sold out

    If you like dance music, then head over to the Digbeth section of Birmingham. It's basically on the opposite side of the Bullring from New Street Station - about 5 minutes walk.

    There, you have the Sanctuary, Custard Factory and Air. Next Saturday, Air will be hosting the Godskitchen Classics night. Later on in September, you'll have Underground City at the Custard Factory and Bounce-to-This at the Sanctuary.

    By Snowhill Station, you have Subway City. Next Saturday, you have Blue vs Afters.

    I go to the arcadian more thou, there are quite a few bars with different types of music and a few clubs just outside, theres reflex for the 80s cheesy music, Moonlounge for the funky house/ speed garage, Hidden and Bambu a play similar and theres Baracuda just round the corner that play a mix of like dance/ RnB etc

    The figure of 8 is cheap and good for day drinking but personally I think Broad street has gone shit plus Studie Bakers has closed down :mad: Hurst street all the way for me, may be the gay guys town but the only place with decent music and I aint moaning if I get to see a few guys getting it on too :D :thumb:

    Was in nightingales on sunday night with Andy Farley, got in free and everything, bless him, he's a lovely guy, Funny when hes wreaked.

    some places are crap there to be fair
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i think it was crap because i wanted t go to places ive never really been before cause i used to always just go to broad street but the girl i was with was having 'oh no we might get lost in the big city because im a dickhead' night out and we ended up just stayin on broad street and ending in flares,it was a shower of shite.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Haha, flares. No wonder its for like the over 50's :|

    China town is the way forward. :thumb:

    Next time leave her at home and plan to go to a proper club.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ther are crap places everywhere.

    And you can't blame Birmingham for the crap night out if you went to Flares, they're a chain for a start you could go there anywhere.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Flares?? No wonder!!

    Cannot stand that place been in once and lasted 20 minutes, couldnt stand it, as Basic instinct said China town all the way.....
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Saturday nights at academy are mostly popular rock/metal. They play pretty much the same every week. There's a large mix of people, woudn't say it's very studenty though. Despite the cheap and nasty drinks. I go alot, though it has decreased recently. Good night, only good though. And only if its your thing.

    Fridays are really different. Same cheap nasty drinks. But alot of underagers and the most varied mix of music you could imagine.

    You know you get in free to club nights after a gig? If you wanted to check it out for a bit.
