If you’re looking for a night ‘out out’ in Doncaster that offers everything from live music and sports, to food and a massive selection of drinks, then we’ve found the perfect night out route for you.
We don’t know about you, but as we’re getting a touch older we are finding that we want a little more and something a little different on our nights out. When we actually get one that is! We want options of food, a variety of drinks, entertainment and somewhere we can actually have a conversation without shouting in each others face. With this in mind as part of our #DoncasterIsGreat series, we’ve been on the search for the best places to go for a night out in Doncaster.
Now, not only have we found the perfect route, it’s just 3 bars that are all next to each other.
Typically David and Donetta, yes we’ve been out to try it for ourselves and made a video so you can have a look yourselves. We decided to get ourselves out on a Friday night, albeit we went early before Friday really kicked off, so we could get some good footage of the bars in question. Here’s our Friday night out out in Doncaster!
Located in the market place, Doncaster, The Magdalen blew us away! I remember going in this building years ago, as in a decade ago and it looked nothing like it does today. An entirely new outlay and the decor is awesome. The Magdalen is a sports bar as well as a live events venue. There’s several TV screens around with sports readily available and they even host box office events. Not only can you decide to go into The Magdalen to kick start your night, you can plan an entire night of sport in there or attend one of their live events such as the recent Reggae Night they held until 3am!
No.7 Rum Rooms
So you’ve had a drink in The Magdalen and if you’re lucky like me, watched the first half of the football in there too! Then, you walk out the back door and stroll right into No.7 Rum Rooms next door. This place is AWESOME! Not only do they specialise in Rum, the name gives it away, but they also serve food upstairs too. So you grab a bite to eat before heading back downstairs to test out a couple of rums and cocktails before the live music starts. This venue is an absolute must see and if we were choosing favourites, this place is our new favourite. The whole vibe this place gives off is unreal, you’ll have to watch the video, look at the pictures, or better yet go experience it for yourself.
Connected to the Rum Rooms via the outdoor part, which again looks amazing, is a tiny room called Gin Rooms. Guess what you can buy in here. It’s such a cool addition to the Rum Rooms and again the design and decor is so imaginative. It was nice to grab a drink and have a chat just away from the main hustle and bustle for half an hour too.
So you’ve had pre-drinks, a bite to eat, some entertainment and several more drinks all without really leaving the two buildings that stand next to each other. There’s areas to sit and chat, catch up with your friends, there’s food available, loads of variety of drinks and options of entertainment, whether that be themed nights, live music or sport.
We were genuinely shocked that we have such a hot-spot right on our doorstep in Doncaster town centre. We had such a nice evening out and are already planning more!
These are our best places to go for a night out in Doncaster, have you been yet?!
