Bars/Clubs in Oxford City Centre


I'm staying in Oxford for 2 nights next weekend with 4 friends and we wanted to know where the nightlife is on a Saturday night? We are looking for trendy bars and good clubs playing the usual stuff RnB, Funky House etc.

Can anyone recommend places to go? Or should we rethink our location and stay in a different city for the weekend?

Many thanks

George Street is where it is all at, or Park End Street towards the station - here is a pretty comprehensive list http://www.dailyinfo.co.uk/venues/gig

(but to be honest it is OK but not brilliant - maybe I am just getting old :) )

Would also recommend Jericho for cocktail bars though it's a little bit more sophisticated in Jericho than George Street or Park End Street. The clubs tend to be around Park End Street and Bridge Street. The Bridge on Bridge Street or Escape on High Street spring to mind.

Do you mind me asking how old you are? If under 30 stick with Park End Street.

For some reason my U30 friends frequent "Escape" 9 High Street (which is not even on the Daily Info guide)....
