When uni starts feeling like a big ol’ pile of stress, it’s time to shut the books and head to the closest uni night, where you can let off steam, socialise with some fellow students, and burn off a bit of energy on the dance floor
Tuesdays @ The Tudor Hotel – Redfern
Get the most out of that meagre student budget, with help from The Tudor Hotel’s generous Tuesday uni night specials. From 6-10pm each week, this cheery Redfern haunt has your back, tempting uni kids from all over with its $10 burger-and-chips combos, and drink specials like $6 cocktails and $12 jugs of beer.
Wednesdays @ The Ranch Hotel – Eastwood
Lucky enough to score a late start on Thursdays? Make the most of it with some Wednesday madness at The Ranch Hotel’s buzzing uni night, Hump. Sign yourself up for a free club card and head in on a Wednesday night to enjoy free entry before 10 pm, $5 spirits and $6 Vodka Mothers (7-10pm), and the chance to win the weekly cash jackpot.
Wednesdays @ 3 Wise Monkeys – CBD
Renowned party spot, 3 Wise Monkeys, recently launched a banging new uni night called Yeah Right Wednesdays and it’s a must-visit for anyone hunting some midweek revelry. Entry is free, and you can expect two levels of epic dance tunes; usually the house, hip-hop, and RnB on the second floor, and trap and twerk up top.
Weeklong @ The Whitehouse Bar – Kensington
very night is uni night at The Whitehouse Bar, which sits right in the heart of the UNSW campus. It might not be a late-night party destination, but it serves a whole lot of student-worthy fun, including $10 cocktails on Mondays, Tuesday’s weekly trivia session, Thursday’s double whammy happy hour (4-6pm), and Friday’s blissful combination of $17 jugs and live tunes.
