Welcome to Barnsley
Barnsley's nightlife is the Party jewel in Yorkshire's social crown. Its many and varied bars, pubs and clubs offer a night time experience that is wonderfully unique. From fully themed fun pubs to a state-of-art Superclub, cutting edge bars to traditional real ale houses - Barnsley really does offer the quintessential 'something for everyone' night out.
Added to a bustling array of nightspots, is the infamous Barnsley hospitality where everyone is a friend and party seekers from out of town are offered the very warmest of welcomes.
Where to visit?
The bars and pubs are all handily arranged into two main circuits: Shambles Street / Market Hill and Peel Street that merge together at Peel Square. From there, the party continues up Wellington Street where further bars can be found alongside the area's largest and most impressive Superclub Escapade. Themed bars in the town include Walkabout, Soul Lounge, Che Bar, Retro & Chicago Rock, whilst The Joseph Bramah, Chambers, The Corner Pin, Shakespeare and The Silkstone provide a more traditional pub experience. For those who want to party hard in to the early hours, Voudou & Escapade are the two venues that stay open late in to the night offering the very best clubbing experience for all the party-hard insomniacs!
Think responsibly - Drink responsibly
Barnsley council, its licensed premises and South Yorkshire police are all extremely proactive in enforcing the towns 'Code of Conduct' approach to the sale of alcohol. All venues within the town centre have an agreed £1.30 minimum charge for all alcoholic beverages to aid the discouragement of excess alcoholic consumption. In addition, the Pub Watch program that involves all of the towns licensees, keeps a strong vigil on issues relating to Barnsley's 'Responsible Drinking' ethos.
Get Home Safely
The end of every great night out sometimes poses the biggest problem - How do I get home? In Barnsley there's a very simple, trouble free solution. 'Taxi Marshalls' are currently deployed to ensure that all patrons are put into appropriately licensed taxis in a safe and orderly fashion with the wellbeing of customers being tantamount. Barnsley is also blessed by the services of 'Street Pastors' who aid anyone in need of help finding taxi ranks, meeting points and liaise with the venues to locate fragmented groups.
Birthdays/Hen Parties/Stag Do's
Barnsley has always been a haven for Birthdays; Hen Parties & Stag Do's and continues to attract a wealth of people in search of that perfect night for their chosen celebration. Escapade, the town's major night club, offers wide and varied VIP packages to further enhance any celebratory big night out.
There is lots to enjoy in THE party town of Yorkshire!
