Well there isn't much in the way of thing to do in Bangor at night, unless you become very inventive. (But that I must say is another story!.) There are several bars, with some of the well-known names such as J.D.Weatherspoon, Firkin, and hogshead, these are mainly full of locals or students, (during term time), several café/bars which serve a variety of foods for reasonable prices. In the way of clubs there is a student union where non-students are welcome (sometimes, check ahead of time) and one club with two names, called "passion / the octagon" which is known to the locals as the shoccy occy. This club is very original in the décor, with fake dollar signs, tiger print walls and sofa's shaped as lips, oh and not forgetting the mirrored walls in some areas. The bottom floor is named the octagon, there is on long bar, and one short one, one set of each type of toilets and a large dance floor. Leading up off this dance floor there is a sweeping staircase, which leads up onto the higher level, where there is another bar and some seats (and the lips sofas!). On this level there is the entrance to passion, a small area with a small bar and a small dance floor and a few seats. This area has it's own DJ and it's own set of stairs leading to the entrance of the club. The drinks and entrance fee is very reasonable for this club; there are many cheap nights the earlier you are the cheaper it is. Look out in the local press, and in some of the shops in town, for free entrance, and special events, such as the once a month 60's & 70's night. The nightlife in Bangor isn't big but it is fun, it isn't at all similar to the big cities, but I must say it is quite a lot cheaper! If going out clubbing or pubbing isn't your thing, then there is a theatre called theatre Gwynedd, which has films, local area shows or small touring company performances. If you don't wish to go there is always the cinema,
which has two screens and shows the most recent releases. In conclusion, Bangor night life isn't a patch on any big city, it's more rural, (the location gives that away), there's less people (as the population in that area is manly mature), and there are fewer pub's, clubs, and general things to spend money on.
