Only been to Fabric once but fantastic. Great atmosphere and amazing music with a brilliant layout. Only downside is that the club has pricey entrance fees and drink prices. Smoking area is also good but needs a seating area within it. Fabric always has great lineup's that never disappoint. If prices were cheaper, I'd be there much more often for sure. The layout of the DJ booths is great and the dance floor layouts too. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had a grate night out here a few weeks ago. Grate atmosphere, grate music and grate artsy crowd. The dance floor wasn't huger the light show made up for it and the top quality djs did too. Drinks are not to expensive either.

Great music to dance to. Such lovely and welcoming staff. Cheap drink deals. Really cool underground club. Amazing crowds, never had an issue and always a great time. Fun events that's always a laugh E.g. Thursdays.

Cargo is a nightclub situated in shoreditch. The venue is spacey and creates a night club atmosphere. The queues are however one of its negatives but this is not always the case. It is fairly friendly to students but open to all ages, so you may get the old geriatric haha! The music is quite flexible and suits most tastes. The value for money, in my opinion could be improved.

I had a great rime here with my friends. We went on a pub crawl and we found out about this bar and we had some great offers on shots and wine. Would love to visit this bar again and will suggest people to be at the bar.

The atmosphere overall is really nice. Very crowded but worth it. Multiple halls with multiple music choices makes it even more special and unique. Recommended to everyone who missed the chance to go.

The venue is very roomy , with lots of space for dancing. The staff were friendly, and the drink prices were very reasonable compared to other bars in London . Music was good but there is little urban music .

cool setting, awesome staff! chill environment. music great, function to vote on what song should be playing next. selection of drinks and snacks awesome! but stopped serving actual food which made students sad. parties are awesome and feel safe in the environment. bathrooms are clean ( at least the women’s one , i haven’t been to the men’s) ..

I've been to cargo a couple of times and it is a pretty cool place! I love the industrial vibe inside with big rooms and high rooftops, and the chill vibe outside in a lovely terrace/garden area. The price is okay, a bit pricey for students on tighter budgets, but in general terms it's affordable for every now and then.

Barrio is one of my favourite places to go when I'm feeling somewhere in between bar and club. It has an awesome atmosphere that's very lively and cheery. There is always music playing and after around 10pm, it transforms into a bit more of a dancing space with a nice mix of commercial hits and latin energy. While it is a bit more on the expensive side for students who have more limited budgets, it still decently priced and it also has happy hour with some delicious cocktail, which is quite affordable.

I love this place! It’s kind of hidden in Brixton, but truly so much fun. There’s live music everywhere. Downstairs is more chill but there’s a very hype live band upstairs if you really feel like dancing. And they also have amazing cocktails and food! I haven’t tried their brunch yet but it’s definitely on my list. I recommend this place to everyone! Especially if you live oldies music this is the perfect spot for you.

The atmosphere is fantastic and the music is usually very good! Just bear in mind, there was a £15 minimum credit/debit card charge so if you only want one drink, bring cash! Other than that, it’s a good energy and fun night!

Pretty expensive student bar, never had any good drink deals. Event nights were ok but sometimes they were pretty awful. It's just an average bar, not amazing really for an SU bar.

Entertaining and fun events, but isn’t very busy or fun on regular days. Staff is very friendly, great value for money

Incredible club, great variety of music on Fridays and Saturdays. Lovely smoking area and outside bar that’s really social and fun in summer. Can get overly crowded and drinks are EXTORTIONATE

One of my favourite places to go for a night out for years! If you get there during the day or early evening the rooftop terrace will be open and that has great vibes. During the night they have several rooms with different music, always good for RnB and Hip Hop lovers. Just a really fun place with a great atmosphere where you can always have a good night.

Lovely bar with a fun, lively vibe where for once i could be pretty comfortable and free. The wristbands for £1 entry at Heaven was also great and the latter was an amazing club with brilliant music.

Very nice bar that turns into a club on the right nights. Cheap drinks and facility to queue music through an app which is nice. Students only around, but fun to chill in.

Took long for good tunes to get rolling but was fun nevertheless, I could’ve stayed forever. The vibes were there. One con tho: men have to be in a mixed group to be let in?? 😂

XOYO is a really great experience. The music was great, i decided to buy tickets for their Andy C residency which i was happy to pay the asked price for. However upon arrival at the club the door could have been organised in a more professional manner. Expierenced three times being told to join new qeues on entrance to the club and witnessed bouncers being unfairly dismissive of customers. Apart from that it was an overall great night.

Cargo is one of the best clubs in london! It has a really cool vibe and its located in Shoreditch! The music is very up to date and its definitely worth the money! Dress is casual as well so its not a big fuss! I literally only go there whenever i go out! They have 2 rooms, 1 plays like rnb/hip-hop and the other plays commercial and theres a smoking terrace as well which is cute! I love it! Absolutely recommend it on a friday or Saturday night!

Guy's bar is a great place to go with friends! No need to dress up, just go along in whatever you're wearing and have a great time. It's great for dancing, although can get very crowded, especially on sports night. I can only give it 3 stars as I want to go more but I'm put off by the huge queue on a Wednesday night! The best way to get into sports night without queuing for a long time is to go either really early or after midnight. Otherwise fun place for a chill night with lots of dancing :)
