Student Guide To Sheffield's Best Nights Out

Caitlin Hart July 29, 2022

Sheffield is one of the best cities to be a student in the UK. With some of the cheapest drinks deals, tons of clubs and and the best themed nights, we bring you the definitive guide to the best venues to visit.

The Leadmill

The Leadmill is hands down the cheapest and most fun club in Sheffield. Drink deals are unmatched and include £1.20 shots and £2 vodka doubles, and the venue hosts a whole range of club nights. From Club Tropicana, an 80s themed Hawaiian shirt party, to Taylor Swift themed sing-a-long nights, The Leadmill hosts something for everybody. It is also a live music venue and hosts weekly gigs.

Molly Malones

Molly Malones is Sheffield’s Irish pub and home to some of the best nights in the city. A firm student favourite offering cheap drinks, indie and pop tunes and, of course, Guinness. Molly Malone’s hosts Big Fat Quiz every Tuesday and Irish Bingo every Thursday. Both are free to play and offer the chance to win up to 10 free drinks.


Want to dance on the tables and drink the biggest cocktails Sheffield has to offer? Bierkeller is the place to be. With drinks served in Steins and cheesy pop all night long, Bierkeller is one of the most fun nights out in Sheffield. Just be careful not to fall off the tables; it won’t help the hangover.

Corp is the place to be for any any alternative and rock lovers. Home to the ‘Corp Pint’, colourful drinks that are sure to get you tipsy, Corp is a fun night full of pop punk, rock and indie. Be sure not to wear your best shoes, or they will leave coated in multicoloured pints.


The Foundry, which is inside The University of Sheffield’s Students’ Union, is a weekly must-do for Sheffield students. Each Wednesday Foundry hosts ROAR, a weekly social night for Sheffield societies with cheap student drinks. and every Saturday is Pop Tarts, the home to cheesy pop. Both are Sheffield student favourites and are sure to sell out each week.
