Qube Boutique Bar and Nightclub is another one of Colchester’s great bars. Qube bar and grill is situated on Crouch street which serves food during the day and transforms into a club at night. At £7, the price of admittance was a little high for students, however the club more than makes up for it. The bar is well decorated with cosy booths, a long island bar and gives off a great night-life vibe. With two levels and an outside area, the bar is very spacious and has plenty of room for all your friends on a night out, or to hire out for V.I.P parties. They play different music on both floors so you can choose which floor you’d rather occupy. There is a long island bar on the ground floor which makes the bar more accessible. Although there is a bar on the top floor, it is smaller meaning there is sometimes a longer wait. There is an outside area available at the back of the club to cool down in or to smoke.

Last week for my friend’s birthday we visited Waikiki. Waikiki is Colchester’s only Tiki bar and is situated down Crouch Street in Colchester. I have been there a few times before and it is always a good night out. Entry on average is £5 and there is a good variety of drinks on offer at Waikiki at reasonable prices. The best part of Waikiki by far is the atmosphere and the décor. Being the only Tiki bar in Colchester, it really stands out from the other bars and clubs with its cool decoration and lighting. There is also a great variety of music played, so there’s usually something for everyone. Continue reading
