Clubbing In Plymouth
Plymouth is not hugely famous for its nightlife but there
are a few city centre venues that may be worth a try,
when you want to strut your stuff.
Most popular with university students, the nightclubs
here offer lots of cut-price drinks, play a mix of dance,
R‘n’B and rock music, and stay open until
One of Plymouth’s newest venues, and definitely
one of its busiest, is The Candy Store [map] on Mayflower Street, which has a variety of DJs playing
at the weekends. The music here is mainly dance but there
are three rooms, each with its own dance floor, so the

dance steps are concerned, anything goes. Friday nights
differ with an ever-changing diary of theme nights but
Saturdays are dedicated to soul, Latin, funk, jazz, pop,
Motown and reggae music.
