While the city may be brimming to the rim with scholars, it's bars where Cambridge also seems to shine. Hailed as one of the best UK getaways, the bars of Cambridge only add to a weekend in this wondrous place of snap-worthy architecture and river antics; from lush haunts where mixology masters reside, to historically favoured plots and slamming party palaces, we've left no stone unturned in our Cambridge discovery. Check out our recommendations for the best bars in Cambridge. 

This Middle-Eastern inspired night bar has become Cambridge's go-to venue for basement busting and underground music - the ideal spot for student nights, weekend benders and roaring night life action. The big draw here is the music, with the likes of Annie Mac, Hot Chip and Skream all having DJ'd here in recent years. In terms of the tipples, you'll find plenty of delectable treats here - from classics to Middle-Eastern inspired concoctions.

De Luca Cucina and Bar

1 user review 5

De Luca's second floor bar pulls in the punters with its choice of champion cocktails and live piano nights. There's plenty to ponder on the menu, although the Raspberry Mule (£7) and the Mojito Deluxe (£9) are particularly prominent best-sellers. Perfect for unwinding after dinner downstairs, the bar hosts frequent Piano nights where Robin P-iano plays your favourite tunes into the night.

With a fierce policy for spreading the ultimate combination of burger and beer love in Cambridge, Butch Annie's doles out patty's of primed beef and Iberican pork with a hop-heavenly collection of craft lagers and ales. You'll find lesser known microbrewery labels here for you beer explorers and the big dawgs of the business for those who know how they like their hops with wine and Bourbon making up the rest of their bar.
