The Dragon Bar

Welcome to the Dragon Bar

Hi, I'm Richard, the Bar Manager and along with my Assistant Manager Kenton and our team of student staff we offer you a warm welcome!

The Dragon Bar has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and most importantly drinks are a lot cheaper than the local pubs around! We host quizzes, discos and club and society social events. Please complete the booking request form to reserve a space in the bar.

The bar area is open throughout the day for you to study and relax with friends in between lectures. There are several USB charging points and WiFi access to enable you to keep connected day and night. There is a free pool table and jukebox which features thousands of songs to keep you entertained.

Come and visit the Dragon Bar and support us, as all profits made goes back into Students' Union funds to support the various activities provided for you.
