Read this short text about clubbing (going out to nightclubs to dance, have drinks and meet people).
NIGHTLIFE - For a city of its size, Oxford has a surprisingly varied club scene, with fifteen nightclubs within the centre. Through the weekday nights the student union and several promoters provide numerous student clubnights, with the most popular clubs including The Bridge, Park End, The Studio. Here R&B, hip hop and classic 'cheese' dominate the playlist, whilst The Purple Turtle provides free entry every night and cheap drinks for members of The Oxford Union. Recently, Oxford has been treated to legendary DJs including Judge Jules, Paul Oakenfold and DJ Shadow. Elsewhere there's something for everyone, with Coven II having regular drum 'n' bass, trance and hard house nights, The Zodiac providing alternative, indie and hard rock, whilst Po Na Na caters for fans of funk, chillout and eclectic music.
