Uni Days at The Cube
We all know that starting university can be a rollercoaster ride of experiences.
From lectures and never-ending course reading lists, to club nights and fresher’s week parties, those first few weeks of the university term may well have left you, quite literally, swept off your feet. With tentative routines and regular term timetables now established, though, why not take the time this month to explore the city that’ll be your university home?
Situated in the heart of the city, The Cube is a must-visit for anyone wanting to get a snapshot of all that Birmingham has to offer. From a boutique bowling alley full of old-school arcade games, to a stylish sushi restaurant and a spacious and edgy fast-food outlet offering the best fried chicken in town, allow The Cube to show you the best of Birmingham’s student scene.
Is the word ‘bowling’ still conjuring up the memory for you of childhood birthday parties and the squeak of those old clown shoes on laminate flooring? If so, then think again with Lane7. Found on Level 6 of The Cube, this cool and contemporary bowling alley is rewriting the rules of bowling as we know it. Decked out with nine state-of-the-art walnut lanes and arcade game favourites like Pacman and Donkey Kong, you and your uni friends can experience a unique and quirky night of rip-roaring fun, which will have you looking at bowling anew. From shuffleboard tables and beer pong facilities, to a UV-lit karaoke booth and even a fully licensed cocktail bar, you are guaranteed to find something up your proverbial lane—pun intended—at Lane7.
The good news? You can enjoy all of this without breaking the bank. With an on-going discount offer for all UK university students of just £6 per game, it has never been easier to take in the nightlife of Birmingham on a student’s budget. For those that want to make a full night of it with friends, why not check out Lane7’s Baller Package? Entitling you to a house drink, arcade tokens, and one game of shuffleboard or beer pong, for as little as £18 per person on an off-peak day, this is just one of many discount packages that will have your student heart singing with joy.
In need of some carb-heavy sustenance after all that? Then why not pop into JACQKs on the floor above? Serving up quick yet convenient food, JAQKs is not only the place to go to for your classic fast-food, pick-up meal, but the absolute pinnacle of every chicken enthusiast’s dreams. There you can choose from an assortment of mouth-watering junk food staples—ranging from succulent burgers and fiery chicken wings, to a moreish selection of sides and bites—which are all made using the highest quality, local ingredients. Available from as little as £7.99, and with the option to eat in or takeaway, there is no better place to round off your student night-out in Birmingham than JAQKs.
Alternately, for the sushi fans of this world, why not check out Shogun Teppan-yaki, also on Level 7? Available for as little as £12.95, Shogun’s Bento Box range is the perfect pairing of quality with student-friendly affordability, and an ideal go-to for those who want to finish up their time in Birmingham with something a lot less fried. Made using rice, salad, assorted vegetables, and your main selection Bento, these boxes will be sure to help refuel your mind and body after an enjoyable night of bowling fun.
Going out and enjoying the delights of Birmingham doesn’t have to cost the earth; at least, not at The Cube.
