By definition:student.: 1. Student: ‘Usually a young person between 18 and 21 who is supposed to attend university at some point or another. Student life for many might entail being bone idle, eating kebabs, stealing traffic cones and getting “totally wreaked!”. Mostly middle class in origin, a great number of them seem fascinated with alcohol and consuming large amounts of cheap larger at arguably cheesy student nights.’
Okay, so perhaps we students enjoy the occasional drinking binge, or ten. The odd drinking game to save our already insufficient finances. But these are the days. Granted, health warnings to us aren’t ignored, simply forgotten over a glass of ‘basics’ vodka. But what is to be expected from young people offered the best night life in the country?
University is not just about the education and graduation, it is also the experience. Finding a home away from home, and enjoying it there. It is unanimously agreed that night life is a significant factor of this, as socialisation and friendship will inevitably blossom.
Attending Sheffield Hallam University as previously mentioned, I severely lack knowledge of the places to be in any other cities other than possibly my home town, Leicester.
Sheffield offers an amazingly diverse and adaptive range of urban night life, that is built for anyone.
Embrace nightclub is one of the more popular venues in Sheffield city. Attracting students from both Hallam and Uni alike, as well as outside Sheffield residents, the destination is found populated every night (excluding Sunday), especially on Wednesday nights (student night) and Saturday nights. Music ranges from mainstream to drum and bass, to indie and hip hop, determined by the numerous rooms inside.
Plug is another one of the more densely populated attractions in Sheffield city. Like Embrace, it offers a range of separate rooms, each providing a different stream of music. Despite this, each room will be ‘packed’ on a Thursday (student) night, and Saturday. Additionally, the location of this club is ideal, situated in the heart of the most populated student area, and as a result attracts a buzzing party atmosphere.
Besides the two most popular night clubs in Sheffield, there are also numerous bars as desirable destinations for great nights out. Including Paris, Crystal, Babylon, Leadmill and Beg Borrow or Steal, all the previous gaurentee night life to top all else.
Sheffield is renowned for a buzzing and electric atmosphere that is not specific to age or background, with a diverse range of the night life consumers. A ten out of ten in my eyes!
