Why Kaplan English students love the Bath nightlife

The home of the UK’s only natural hot water springs, nightlife at Kaplan's English school in the Roman spa town of Bath is bubbling with heated energy.

Bath proves that historical cities do not have to be stuck in the past. As one of England’s top university destinations, Bath houses thousands of students, including those from Kaplan’s Bath English language school, giving it a youthful feel and a strong party spirit.

For your first taste of this dynamic spark, head to cheekily named Back to Mine bar. This student favourite is full of eye-catching design features and regularly holds thriving poker nights. A second fashionable Bath hotspot is Moroccan themed Po Na Na. This luxurious underground cavern club has welcomed some of Britain’s best known DJs in the past and offers a range of musical styles including indie, rock and cheese.

If none of those grab your attention, don’t panic! Second Bridge, another popular Bath club, fills the gaps with dance, disco, R&B and international music nights on every single week. Add big name live bands at Moles club and karaoke at Club XL and Bath seems to have almost every style covered.

It’s not just with music that Bath delivers variety though, when it comes to the taste test, Bath has it all. Get more for your money with Ocean Pearl’s all you can eat Chinese buffet, or enjoy Latin American flavours at Las Iguanas. Choose from 30 different flavours of vodka at the fashionable Revolution cocktail bar, or settle down to a hearty English dinner at traditional British pub, the Rifleman’s arms.


If you have time after all that, Bath still has a lot left to explore, like films at the Little Theatre Cinema, drama and comedy at the Rondo or even spooky city ghost tours.

In fact, when you study at Kaplan’s Bath English School, you’ll discover that just like the natural hot springs, the city’s supply of nightlife is practically overflowing!
