Central Station Wrexham


A bustling town by day, Wrexham comes alive at night with loads of great options for drinking, dancing and socialising.

Bars and pubs

The nearest bar is the Lazy Lion, a pop-up bar at the Students' Union building. Beyond campus, the town centre area has a huge 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.

Atik is North Wales' largest nightclub venue. Capable of hosting 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.

Live music

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 Glynd┼Ár 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.

Beyond Wrexham

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.
