Popworld Cardiff

For a cheesy, fun-filled night head to Popworld in the city centre. This classic student club in Cardiff comes decked out with a light-up dancefloor and DJs pumping nothing but the biggest pop songs from past and present, meaning there is nothing standing between you and a boogie.

Perfect for anyone on a budget, Revs has got the goods when it comes to cheap 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 make a dent in your loan either.

Probably the most popular student club in the city, Y Plas is the Cardiff University union hotspot that offers a range of pocket-friendly nights out. Head over for themed bashes, live music and society socials, safe in the knowledge that you're within stumbling distance from your halls.

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 being all about cheap drinks and Thursdays bringing on the karaoke.

A favourite amongst Cardiff's creative student crowd, Womanby Street's Clwb Ifor Bach is a go-to for DJ nights as much as live music. Whether you're getting down at classic pop, funk and soul soirees or dirty old rock, they've got a mix of genres across three floors.

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 student club nights, you're always in for a good time at this Bakers Row haunt.
