I dont know what the doorman are upto - they are IDing everyone - its a major put off. I can understand if someone looks underage but last week I was wondering if they were just bored. Therer boredom will cost the bar if they keep it up.

I just wanted to say that this place is a backbone for all nightclubs around it. It has always attractid people in every weekend. It is a cool place to visit before going clubing to spider or diva/liquid - Varsity brings in a lot of people before it shuts. My mates and me LUV IT! in here - these clubs should appreceate your efforts because if your bar was rubbish it would reflect on custom to the others when it shuts. I agree with the post from 'lesley' you have a great mixture of music and obviously is doing a great job. Music and atmospher - mint. See you on Saturday Varsity (as always)

Don't know what that Kristen's on but the music is fantastic on a Monday, probably the best night of the week. We love it!

Whats happened to mondays? The musik just isnt there anymore. Has Varsity changed the DJ over the last couple of weeks? Still love it in here but concerned. x

Last weekend a group of us went out after a long evening at work. We work as accountants in a big firm in wearside. We ended up in varsity and found it to be a good place. The music was good and we all started to get into the mood. One of our members of staff was dancing and all of the sudden a doorman came down stairs and threw him out with force. We were gobsmacked! Obviously we left our drinks and went outside to be with him as it would be wrong leaving him outside. Our friend done nothing wrong at all apart from having a casual dance. We were very annoyed considering everyone else was dancing. I am leaving this message to inform you that we will NOT be returning because of this. We are professional workers and are not shy when spending money. Great place but we will be staying away from doorstaff like that.
