Southampton’s best clubs in the light of day

We were in Southampton’s nightclubs before we had eaten our lunch.


Sobar

The laminated floor beams up at you, the sofas look cosy and the dance floor inviting. Sticking to the floor and trying to move through a sweaty large crowd is a distant memory. Also did you know they had a bar downstairs?        sobar-1

Oceana

Oceana shrinks in size when the lights come on. It took me a solid three minutes to explore Oceana’s three rooms, contrary to the forty minutes it normally takes me to leave the club after a night out.

Switch

Besides being a lot lighter, being in Switch during the day just feels like the first awkward ten minutes of arriving, as you shuffle your feet and wait for the place to fill. But missing their sick lighting and sound system of course. The most noticeable difference is you can see floor instead of a sea of people when you look down from the balcony.

Junk

Again very different in the light of day. It appears bigger when you are not manoeuvring your way through crowds of hipster kids wearing sunglasses.

Jesters

The same, and we love you for it. Never change.
