Leamington Spa is becoming a popular area for students and young professionals, meaning that the quality of nightlife is constantly getting better and better.

The Anti Social is a restaurant/bar/local pub all wrapped into one. They have a minimalistic bar downstairs, with a artistic 2D style room located in the back room, with an upstairs roof terrace in Summer. They have a wide selection of spirits and drinks, and their nightlife can’t be paralleled with their Tuesday night pre drinks before Smack, normally with the whole of the Anti Social being full!
