Over the years I have been to the Varsity in York for a drink at lunchtime or the startpoint for a night out.It is a very spacious establishment and they serve really nice food and you can get drinks at a cheaper price with a Varsity Card to make the drinks taste that bit nicer.On warmer days you sit at the back in the Beer Garden but i the winter it is better to keep inside.
Upstairs they have different sets of couches and chairs so that different numbers of people can sit down unwind and then socialise.If it is rather busy upstairs or you are unable to get served then you can always venture downstairs where there is again plenty of space and lots of sofa`s and seats so you are made to feel comfortable.
I would say my best experience at Varsity was when with work I went there with my colleagues for a Christmas Night Out and for me the food the drinks the accompaniments were really great and it made for a really enjoyable night out.I would say the worst experience was recently when I ordered some food that never came in an hour of waiting and I got an apology and a refund.
Barring the bad experience I would say to visit this establishment as it does have a lot to offer.
The Varsity, Myrtle St, next to Liverpool Community College and opposite the 86 bus stop is a swanky airy bar which hooked me and my house mates when we were all wee freshers. Seducing us with deals on Bacardi Breezers and Southern Comfort we soon fell in to bad habits in our courses to sneak off to our favourite 'studenty but not too studenty' bar in Liverpool. After a few months, however we realised we had been conned by the offers, which soon ceased, but we still loved it's relaxed atmosphere, leather sofas and witty decor all the same. This year it's repeated it's tempting offers in the first couple of months, so i'd recommend you go now before they go back to the old prices. That said, the prices you normally pay aren't bad, and it's a straight road ( for those of you who find that alcoholic hinders your sense of direction) down Hardman St in to town. Bar staff are friendly but I wouldn't recommend the Guinness, which has always tasted rather odd.
