One of Cardiff's favourite nightlife hubs, Soda can sort you for everything from happy hours to live sports screenings. Students should be checking out their Wednesday night offering where they turn up the volume and bring down the drinks prices - £2 wine? It'd be rude not to.
Student Clubs in Cardiff
Fresh-faced and new to the Welsh capital? A seen-it-all-before final year? Wherever you're at in your university career, Cardiff's student clubs are well worth missing that 9am lecture for. From pop-tastic, multi-level venues to hard-rocking basement clubs, whatever kind of night you're after find it on our list of the best student clubs in Cardiff.
Head over to Mill Lane where this excellent cocktail and party keeps the tunes blaring until 6am almost every night of the week. While the cocktails aren't the cheapest in town, they're unparalleled for quality, and the venue throws plenty of student friendly events.
For a cheesy, fun-filled night head to Popworld in the city centre. This classic student haunt comes decked out with a light-up dancefloor, and DJs pumping nothing but the biggest pop songs from past and present, there is nothing standing between you and a boogie.
Perfect for anyone on a budget, Revs has got the goods when it comes to good drinks, tunes and a big atmosphere. Alongside DJs spinning tracks throughout the night, the venue's talented team of bartenders use an arsenal of ingredients to shake up some of the most creative cocktails in town - and they won't cost you the world.
Sleep all day, party all night - live up to the student stereotype with Shoreditch Cardiff which is open until 3am, seven nights a week. The massive club has several rooms for you to flit between, from pretending you were born before the 90s in Groovy Wonderland with its disco floor to singing your heart out in the Lucky Voice karaoke room.
The 90s are cool again, yeah? And for the ultimate student 90s party head to Retro in central Cardiff. There are two dancefloors to get down on at this Mill Lane spot, with Wednesday nights are all about cheap drinks and Thursday's bringing on the karaoke.
VKs at the ready kids because Metros is serving up nothing but the best in cheap drinks and excellent tunes. Bringing you the biggest throwback pop parties and alternative club nights, they're offering free entry before 11, £3 doubles and a whole lot of trouble.
As far as Cardiff's student nightlife goes, Y Plas is pretty spot on; built in Cardiff University's student union, YOLO Wednesday is the dedicated clubbing night while the rest of the week there's an excellent line up of live music - past artists include Jake Bugg and London Grammar.
