Venues and bars are closed

Following the latest government announcement, unfortunately our venues and bars remain closed during the national lockdown. 


Our social spaces are inclusive, safe and fun. Come have a meal, drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic), or just chill with friends in student-only venues with lots of Imperial history.

    FiveSixEight is a restaurant-bar and is one of the central social areas for every student at Imperial College. With a mixture of indoor and outdoor seating, FiveSixEight is the perfect place for delicious lunch or thirst quenching drink. From our weekly Super Quiz every Tuesday, to our club nights on Wednesday and Friday, there is always something going on!

    Metric is Imperial's biggest nightclub and home to the Union’s most exciting music events featuring a superb sound system, state of the art lighting and every day great value drinks prices. Wednesday and Friday nights are the staple club nights with students running great events on other nights of the week, all year long!

    Union Bar

    The Union Bar is next to FiveSixEight and is a greatly historic place. Having opened since 1957 the wood-panelled bar is a lively space used primarily for Union Club and Society events. Home to darts, real ales and the RSM Bottle, the Union Bar remains a firm favourite with undergraduates, postgraduates, alumni and staff.
