A serviced apartment is a great place to call home when coming to Cambridge on business. But you don’t have to be all work and no play on your corporate break.

Cambridge is the perfect playground to let your hair down after a long day making business contacts and pursuing leads. The city’s entertainment offering offers something for everyone, meaning whatever your interests or budget, you can wind down the right way. In this blog post, we explore how you should spend your evening off in Cambridge.

Discover the best of Cambridge’s nightlife

Cambridge is packed full of venues where you can enjoy a stiff drink and the best music. You’ll find a range of drinking holes, including lively clubs, chilled out and stylish bars, and relaxing traditional pubs. Cambridge’s pub scene is particularly vibrant and has a long history of entertaining locals and visitors alike.

Many of the city’s pubs have been open for more than a century, with The Mitre Tavern, Grantchester, The Eagle, The Old Spring and The Green Man just some of the haunts you should frequent on your evening off.

If live music and carefully crafted cocktails are more your thing, try the ultra-trendy Hidden Rooms, La Raza, and De Luca Piano Bar. There are also hidden bars to discover throughout the city. Here Cambridgeshire Live explains where to find the most exclusive, 2648:

“If you haven’t heard of this place, you’re probably just not cool enough. This hidden speakeasy is tucked away on Trinity Street in a basement, out of sight from the general population. But if you do manage to find 2648, available to you is a classic selection of cocktails which the bar describes as ‘generously proportioned’ and food pop-ups that change regularly.”

Catch a performance at the junction

Cambridge Junction attracts partygoers from all over the country courtesy of its varied events programme. Their unique offering provides something for all, with live music, dance, comedy, theatre, and club nights just some of the events you can look forward to.

Guests travelling to Cambridge over the festive period will want to catch The Wind in the Willows, which runs from Wednesday 11th December 2019 to Sunday 5th January 2020. Staying for New Year too? Celebrate the start of 2020 by experiencing Cirque Du Soleil as you’ve never seen it before at Cambridge Junction.

Go back to university

If you’re a big fan of the stage, the University of Cambridge theatres – namely the Corpus Playroom and the ADC Theatre – are must-visits. Both offer the chance to see an exciting variety of productions. The theatres are run by Cambridge University clubs and societies.

The ADC Theatre is the oldest university playhouse in the UK, and helped to launch the careers of the likes of Sir Ian McKellen, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson. Who knows you could even see the next star of stage or screen when enjoying their programme of drama, music, and comedy.

Enjoy the best of film

Fancy a nice quiet night catching the latest flick? You can thank Cambridge’s three cinemas. The Light Cinema, Vue at The Grafton and Cambridge Arts Picturehouse offer a varied programme of film, with the latter specialising in the best of world cinema.
