Are you a Jesters gal or a Switch lad? Let’s solve this debate once and for all.

Vote for your favourite nightclub now and the results will be revealed next week.

Jesters

Known as The Palace of Dreams, need we say anymore? Home to the Jesticle and partnered with Clowns, Jesters has previously been ranked the worst nightclub in the UK, but is that why we love it? If luminous coloured drinks, sticky dance floors and cheesy music floats your boat then vote for Jesters at the bottom.

Most people spend their time on the dance floor propping up the ceiling.

Sobar

Home to the triple vodka (previously the Quad Vod), Sobar is the place to be on a Tuesday night. Despite the insane toilet and bar queues, Sobar arguably has better music than Jesters. But let’s be honest, we all go just to stand outside.

Oceana

Disco room or Ice House? Whatever you pick you’ll be listening to absolute bangers all night. Arguably the first ‘proper’ nightclub on this list. A place where you don’t have to wear the scabbiest shoes you own and that stays open later than 2am. If the hangover-curing Oceana hotdog beats Manzils then vote Oceana.

If Oceana is the classy option, what does that say about the rest of the nightclubs in Southampton?

Cafe Parfait

The only place to go on a Sunday night. Boasting good tunes, shisha and the odd BBQ, Cafe Parfait is an all round winner. If waking up on a Friday with pockets full of chocolate is your thing then Parfait should get your vote.

On Saturdays Cafe Parfait gets transformed into a Le Cirque Musical extravaganza open till 5am

Switch

It replaced the beloved Voodoo, can Switch win over your heart? From Tinie Tempah to the Wealdstone Raider, Switch really does cater for all. With Juiced Fridays and Warehouse on Saturdays, is Switch owning nightlife on the South coast?

The Edge

The Edge is Southampton’s oldest LGBT nightclub. Famous for its late opening times, The Edge is often seen as the last stop. With its famous BAR150 on Wednesdays, The Edge is popular throughout the week with both students and locals. The generally relaxed feel, great music, two dance floors, large indoor and outdoor areas and a juicy BBQ all contribute to making The Edge many peoples favourite venue!

Orange Rooms

There’s more to Orange Rooms than just the fish you know. With fancy cocktails and amazing burgers, Orange Rooms is a great way to start your night or stay for a boogie. Known for their open mic nights on Monday and the famous Rogue Tuesdays, Orange Rooms is one of the most popular bars in Bedford Place. If it’s your favourite, vote at the bottom.

Junk

Less crowded than the likes of Jesters, Sobar and Switch, with two rooms Junk is very popular. Propaganda on Friday nights has gone down a storm and it has kept it’s Saturday night regulars. The drinks are a tad more pricey than venues in Portswood but it has good music and a decent smoking area. Junk was voted the UK’s best small club in 2013 but will it get your vote?

From Propaganda to House, the Junk dance floor is very diverse.

PopWorld

The place where you spend all night saying “Omg I haven’t heard this song in forever”…then belt out every single word. The regulars may be middle aged, the drinks may be a tad pricey and no one likes looking at themselves in that huge mirror while dancing. But nevertheless, it’s still everyone’s favourite stop on Carnage. You can’t help but be happy on that light up dance floor.
