As some of us have no doubt noticed, it’s become a little more expensive than in years gone by to have a few drinks with our bessies. It’s now become commonplace to spend upwards of £5 for a pint in some bars outside of London, with Nottingham no exception to this rule.
With this in mind, where can you go to top off a great night out without worrying about how your bank balance will look the morning after? In this post, we’ll profile five nightclubs throughout the city where you can knock back a few refreshing cocktails or ales without paying a premium price.
The Bodega Social Club
This popular live music venue doubles up as a nightclub whenever they don’t have anyone taking to the stage. A big part of the attraction is that, on some nights, they offer two cocktails for just £8.
As for other drinks, all day Monday, you can buy a bottle of Peroni for just £2. Their home-brewed lager, meanwhile, will also set you back just a couple of quid, so you can have a cheap night out without having to settle on more well-known beer brands!
