A bustling town by day, Wrexham comes alive at night with loads of great options for drinking, dancing and socialising.
Bars and pubs
The most convenient bar for students is of course our own The Centenary Club, affectionately known as ‘the Cent’ around campus. Found just yards from the Wrexham Village student accommodation, the Cent is not only the official students' bar, but also the official matchday bar for Wrexham AFC and North Wales Crusaders matches.
With plasma TV screens, pool tables, Wi-Fi and a stage area for live bands, DJs and comedy events, it's a great place to relax, study and socialise on campus.
Beyond campus, the town centre area is home to a good selection of pubs ranging from traditional real ale houses to more modern bars showing live sports, all within a short walk of each other.
Wrexham's student scene has really come of age over the past few years, and there are some great club nights to enjoy.
Liquid and Envy is North Wales' largest nightclub venue, and hosts the official Wrexham Glyndŵr student night. With capacity for more than 1600 people in two rooms, the club's various theme nights regularly feature the UK's top DJs and PAs.
Central Station also hosts a broad range of regular club nights, alongside their live music events.
If live music is your thing you won't be disappointed. Central Station has been described by the Independent and Kerrang as 'Wales' leading live music venue,' and its stage has been graced by names including Enter Shikari, Kasabian, Biffy Clyro, The Levellers, Bloc Party and many more .
It's also a leading venue for Focus Wales, a music festival and conference featuring performances from more than 100 bands across the town.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University's very own William Aston Hall also regularly hosts live music, with recent concerts from Feeder, the Levellers, the Proclaimers and UB40 amongst others.
Chester is the nearest stop if you want to freshen up your nightlife away from Wrexham. Regular bus and train services run to the city and a taxi won't be too expensive if you're clubbing together with your friends.
The city comes alive at the weekend as the trendy bars and traditional pubs which line its streets open until the early hours. Check out Chester Nightlife.
