Tup Tup Palace is a place for boujee among the student population.

Each day has its own theme, including a number of student nights from Love Dough on Tuesdays, Playground on Wednesdays and Jungle on Thursdays, this is truly one of the best (and boujeeist) student clubs in Newcastle.

Where: 25-27 Mosley Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne NE1 1YF

Voted the best club in Newcastle by The Tab a few years ago, you just know that the four floors of Soho rooms will become a home from home as a student in the city. The bar/club is the BEST place in town to get the famous Toon Trebs, and yes it’s exactly what you think it is…triple vodka with mixer. Deadly. But, Soho Rooms is incredibly affordable and very nice for your loan, a must visit and one of the best student clubs in Newcastle.

Where: 14 Bigg Market, Newcastle-upon-Tyne NE1 1UW

Ok we all know what we get with Popworld, once you’ve visited one you’ve all been there, but why should that affect the reality of the situation; it’s one hell of a fun and carefree night. With super cheap drinks and even more cheesy music, everyone can enjoy themselves (unless you’re “too cool”, in which case we didn’t want to go with you anyway.) A classic, and with deals like £1.50 for a Smirnoff mixer, WKD, a pint of Fosters or a Jagerbomb on Wednesdays, this is easily one of the best student clubs in Newcastle, and you’ll no doubt be spending a lot of your time in the toon, and probably your ready, in.
