Being a student in a global city like London can really take its toll on your bank account. We all know a major part of life for most students in the capital is frequenting the coolest pubs in London that can be found. But, how can you do this without your heart sinking the morning after a night out when you peek at your bank account? Well, have no fear, here are London’s top student bars that will provide the backdrop for a great night, and also have some cheap deals on drinks to save you that all important sterling.
Bario Central, Soho
Located in vibrant Soho, Bario Central is a draw for its great music, amazing cocktails and good value. The bar has a Latin American vibe and this flows through many of the drinks created by the passionate and excitable bartenders! The bar consists of two floors so make sure to explore it all. Head to Bario Central during Amigo Hour when all cocktails are £6, this offer is available all-day Sunday and Monday, and until 8pm on other days!
The Four Quarters, Peckham
This Unique attraction is a hit with students looking for something different. Four Quarters is a cheap bar in Peckham, South East London that has a retro arcade games theme. That’s right, you can be sipping on a Bloody Mary while trying to survive an impossible level of Pac-Man. The machines run on US quarters and 4 can be purchased at the bar for £1 (hence the name). The bar has its own selection of craft beers as well as a wide selection of cocktails, wines, spirits and other drinks. There aren’t many other pubs in London that have arcade games, so you really can’t skip The Four Quarters!
Bavarian Beerhouse, Tower Hill
The Bavarian Beerhouse in Tower hill will give any student in London the authentic German Bavarian experience. Grab a group of friends and head down to this warm and welcoming establishment that offers 6 pint drinks, or, if that’s a little too much, grab one of the very respectable Stein glasses. The venue also offers classic Bavarian food such as Schnitzels and lots of sausage dishes. The staff are also kitted out in full lederhosen for that authentic feel!
The Roxy, Rathbone Pl, Flitzrovia
The Roxy is a great night out, even if the bouncers can be a little over zealous. The bar and club, situated near Tottenham Court Road, is a firm favorite with students from across the capital. Once you enter and head down the stairs you are invited into a cozy underground get away which has a mixture of cheap drinks, great music, friendly people, and cozy sofas to sit on. Between 6:30pm and 10:30pm cocktail pitchers are half price!
Bar Kick, Shoreditch
If you hadn’t guessed, Bar Kick is a popular bar in Shoreditch whose theme revolves around table football! Covering a first floor and basement level, the bar has multiple football tables on each level that anyone can play on. You do need a steely eyed gaze to spot when a table becomes available, but when you are on one you can invite anyone to battle. All cocktails are £8 and most beers are under £4—very kind on the student budget.
