Located in the East Midlands, Worcester has an array of pubs, clubs, trendy bars and live entertainment that all offer a great night out…

Who said church had to be boring? A converted church in Worcester city centre (now bar/restaurant) is now under the name of Slug and Lettuce, a popular chain dotted around the UK. It is the ideal place to meet friends for coffee, lunch, dinner or a drink. It has large range of premium lager, cider and spirits and an extensive cocktail menu that makes this one of the best party venues in town. With weekly salsa classes, and DJ’s, there’s always something going on. Alternatively you can create your own personalised party by hiring out the upstairs bar in your very own private section.

A fan of live entertainment? Then jet off to Marrs: one of Worcester’s premier music venues. It has live music at least four nights a week, with various promotions and club nights. Similarly at the O'Neill's there's always something new to enjoy whenever you visit- and they’ll always make sure you get a warm welcome.
