      The student night out

      The Blue Angel - otherwise known as 'The Raz' - is a nightclub, situated on Seel Street in Liverpool. It is a little slice of student heaven! It;s open all week and at the weekends.

      I spent most of my student life in the Blue Angel! The Angel is laid out across two levels - ground floor and a basement and is namechecked in early Beatles history (they played there).

      It's not the cleanest or nicest smelling of places, it's very hot, there's never any loo roll in the ladies and it's filled with rather a lot of moronic men most nights of the week. It gives you the worst hangovers known to man and has very steep 'strairs of death' from one floor to another. The decor is awful and it's a bit seedy.

      But it's absolutely brilliant! It's ludicrously cheap, both to get in and the alcohol. Back in the day, I used to get three bottles for two quid! Now, I'm not condoning binge drinking, but that's what students do, and you might as well do it cheaply.

      The music is very cheesy - Tiffany, early Take That, Chesney - but this is exactly what you want after a few drinks! It's juts one of those places you need to go if you are a student in Liverpool. You can even buy Blue Angel t-shirts (I still wear mine to bed!)

      Now, I'm 26 and would probably need an ambulance on standby these days but if you're about 18 to 23, like a cheap and funny night out , then this is the place for you!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        The Blue Angel Nightclub is situated in the heart of China Town and is a mecca for those interested in a cheap night out, a laugh and a drunken snog or twelve.

        The Raz has been going since the 1960's and it looks like the've only changed the carpets once.

        I have been going there for nine years now, on and off.... yes I really am that old... and it remains the cheesiest place in Liverpool. However, I much rather prefer The Krazy House now as the queues to get in can be absolutely ridiculous. I only tend to go now when we're having a ''reunion'' ie drunken night with my old university mates, who I see every six months or so. You cannot go there sober or too serious.

        The prices vary.

        Monday- entry £1.50 and all pints are 70p
        Tuesday- entry £1 - ALL drinks are £1
        Wednesday- entry £1.50
        Thursday entry £1.50 (3 for the price of 2 on bottles)
        Friday entry £2.50
        Saturday entry £2.50

        Tuesdays are by far the most popular night when everything costs just £1.

        The upstairs is like a conventional pub but the downstairs is like a cave, the floor can get quite muddy and the music can be exceptionally veering towards pure cheddar.

        You will find yourself getting intoxicated while dancing to S Club 7 and eightees bilge such as Tiffany, Rick Astley and Wham.

        But it's ok, because the Raz is like a law unto itself where bad taste can be actively participated while you drink tepid vodka that will give you heartburn.

        I celebrated my 21st birthday there and I wouldn't have it any other way.

        Learn from my experience:

        1. Always queue early, there is quite a nice Irish pub opposite called Pogue Mahone, which is always good for a warm up session instead of waiting in the cold. The place opens at 10. It's better to be early and drinking cheap drink than to be really up for it and not get in.

        2. Do ask the lovely woman who works behind the desk for a membership card. I don't really need mine since she's cleaned vomit off my face, but they are handy when the place is really busy.

        3. Do not wear white clothes unless you are prepared to be pestered by dodgy members of the opposite sex as the lights downstairs make you positively illuminous. Also avoid wearing black if you have dandruff, this is not an attractive look.

        4. Do try to get your own 'spec' as the club gets really packed and if you're a regular I find that the corner nearer the DJ booth is a good place to be.

        5. Do ask the DJ for requests, he's a really nice bloke and if you want to hear a song from your mispent youth you can be guaranteed he's got it.

        6. If you can take some toilet paper with you as the girl's toilets for example are always a shake your lettuce zone.

        7. If you are disabled (like me, ah yes I am that mad girl in the wheelchair who takes her top off to The Weathergirl's) the bouncers will carry you and your chair downstairs. The toilets aren't really all that accessible, but they can be done.

        If you can't get into the Blue then you can always try The Cabin, which is just as bad, but doesn't really have the same seedy charm of that innocent looking place on Seel Street.

        Forget the heat and the sometimes claustrophobic surroundings, you can not call yourself a student until you've done at least three embarissing things in the Raz... so I am not telling how many ashaming things I have done in there, but if you're a regular you've probably seen me in action at some point.

          • "Be careful who u pull!"

          If you dont mind wading through the mixture of sweat and p*ss on the dancefloor (which tastes remarkably similar to the beer) the Raz is a cracking place to go out if you are a student in Liverpool. Its cheap and cheerful, with DJ Dave playing the cheesiest tunes ever recorded to a group of p*ssed up sweaty students crammed like sardines into a dungeon-like building. The cloak room is only 20p, and on a Tuesday night all drinks are a nugget, so there really is no excuse not to go (as long as you have got an excuse for not going to next mornings lectures). Its open all week and saturday is another one worth checking. This is the kind of place that everyone loves but noone admits to loving, so I am saying it loud and proud. Oh, yeah, one last thing: Please dont go if you have any qualms about waking up next to a buffalo the next morning. It will happen. Guaranteed.

              • "meat market!"

              The Blue Angel or Raz as i found out most call it after having visited it for over a year has to be the sweatiest club in liverpool! You might have a few problems getting in after 1030 on a tuesday which is the best night to go (student night) so get there early! Then get past the 'members only' rubbish and your home free! The ground floor is terrible, dingy and smelly, venture downstairs though and you find yourself in an wonderful cave of drunken people! Warning, get there early and get drunk quickly or you won't get past the door men nor the meat market contenders inside. The music is fab and cheesy but sometimes there is not enough room to dance so i get annoyed. So if you are claustrophobic, avoid! Otherwise, get your funniest mates in their cheapest outfits together, get them drunk and fling them down the stairs (not literally!) to watch the madness unfold!

                First of all, don't be put off by the name "The Blue Angel". In fact, hardly anyone in Liverpool calls it by its name - "The Raz" it what it's known as to us students. Do you like cheesy music? No, not just pop clutter, I mean real cheese. Chesney Hawkes, Village People, Ricky Martin, Van Morrison, Iggy Pop, Don McLean, to name just a few! Thinking about going already? I'll warn you first - you CANNOT be sober to go in there or you probably won't enjoy it! It's all drunken fun in there. But I still can't see why everyone loves The Raz. It's a dive! It's mainly based in the basement of the building - upstairs is just the drinking area to get drunk if you aren't already. Downstairs, as I mentioned, it's just the basement. That means pillars everywhere, a really low ceiling, at it does get fairly warm. Getting the picture? I should start defending it soon. The great thing about The Raz is the prices - Monday is £2.50 to get in, and all pints are 70p! No kidding! On Tuesdays, everything including entry is £1. But watch out on Tuesdays - it's bound to be really packed, because all the uni societies have their socials on Tuesdays and most of them end in The Raz! It's a great place for birthdays as well. Imagine the embarrassment of the DJ announcing to the whole club that it's your 20th, then all your drunken "mates" give you the birthday bumps. Thankfully it's not happened to me yet!
