Student Article - Guide to Sunderland nightlife!
Author: Mark Jeal
Sunderland is booming with city nightlife after many years of living under the shadow of Newcastle. Having been recognised by NME magazine as "the new Manchester" for music it has recently seen local band "the Futureheads" and "Radio One's Big Weekend" breathe new life into the area. Certainly there is no shortage of local live music if you like to watch bands in easily accesible areas of the city centre. Bars such as "PURE" and "The Borough" beside park lane interchange frequently host live bands with low priced admission.

Nightclubbing has also began to thrive since more and more bar and club owners have established themselves in the city and Sunderland can now offer a competitive night out to Newcastle. Most popular clubs in the city are "Liquid & Diva", "the Beach" and "Privilege" all again based right inside the city centre no more than 2 mins away from each other. The number of bars in the city has doubled over the last 4 years and Sunderland can offer one of the biggest pub crawls of any city.

Recently added to the city was the huge "Cineworld" multiscreen cinema. For many years residents in Sunderland had to go outside of the city to see the movies they wanted to see, but the new cimema, built beside a multi-storey car park near wearmouth bridge has meant people don't have to spend excesive money on travel fares. Money can infact be saved with a low cost ticket for students priced 3.90 and a bargain tuesday where all tickets are a mere 3.80
