Varsity, as you can see in the picture, is a two tiered bar in Little Park Street in Coventry. It is situated near the police station and the courts.
Although food is available, Varsity is mainly a 'drinking' establishment and is often used as a pre-club bar. It is hugely popular with students and can get very crowded in side. There is also a Varsity situated near Warwick University which is on a much larger site.
When I last went we had to pay a couple of quid to get in and the drink prices were, as seems to be the norm, at least slightly inflated. It was also very crowded and moving around in side was pretty tough going.
You can however, save money on everything at Varsity from entry to food and drink with a Varsity card. They are available from bar staff for £1. In addition to money off inside, it also offers some partner discounts at places like 3 mobile and Waterstones. The card expires after one year. You can always ask about drinks offers too as they usually have several running.
I guess it's a good warm-up bar for the nightclubs but not many people seem to stay there all night. Could really do with a bigger site though, especially for Student Nights (Wednesdays).
