When the weekend hits we know it is finally a chance for us to let our hair down, hit the town with our friends and have a couple of drinks.
Sometimes going to the same club each week can get a bit repetitive, so we have put together a list of top nightclubs across Shropshire and the Midlands to help you have a night to remember.
- Have we missed any off the list you would like to recommend? Let us know in the comments section below.
Popworld, Wolverhampton & Birmingham
It is cheesy, we know. Yet if you say that you have gone out for a couple of bevvies after work in Wolverhampton and not ended up in Popworld then you’re either lying, or you managed to come up with some excuse why you couldn’t pay the entry fee.
Popworld is one of the most fun clubs in the city; where else can you drink a cocktail out of a plastic top hat and dance to Everybody by Backstreet Boys at the same time? Whether you are a fan of pop music or not, a night at Popworld is bound to be a laugh.
Propaganda, O2 Academy, Birmingham
It may be a student hot-spot - but for a club that tends to be a good sign. Propaganda is a great night out if you’re a lover of indie music. It’ll take you back to the absolute classics from Oasis and Bowie right up to The 1975 and Arctic Monkeys.
Hosted in Birmingham's O2 Academy, Propaganda, is a great club night to head to if you don’t want to head home after a gig. For us Wolverhampton folk it is no Blast Off! but it’ll fill the gap in our lives that the beloved indie club filled.
The Buttermarket, Shrewsbury
As well as being a popular club in the town, The Buttermarket, doubles up as a music venue. On top of all the gigs The Buttermarket holds weekly themed nights including Boombox, Skint and Pounded.
Licensed until 6.30am, it is the go to venue to end your night out in Shrewsbury.
Having upped sticks and moved to a brand spanking new location last year, it is fair to say Snobs is probably one of the most popular clubs in Birmingham.
Blasting out some serious indie, rock ‘n’ roll, retro, alternative and electric tunes combined with cheap drinks and jam-packed dance floors you’re guaranteed to have a wicked night out at this classic club.
Adjacent to The Peach Tree is C:21 one of Shrewsbury’s award-winning nightclubs. Last February it was awarded Best Overall Venue in Shropshire and the Best Nightclub in Shropshire in the Best Bar None Awards.
It holds 90s nights, R&B nights and The Big Saturday Night Out and is the perfect place to dance the night away until the early hours. If you fancy a change of scenery you can always pop into its sister venue, Spirit Champagne Bar.
The main room of Religion, the former WS1 nightclub on Bridge Street, has a warehouse party theme with a second room on the ground floor known as Planet Pop which caters to a different audience.
It has a roof terrace which is great for enjoying your drinks on during the warm summer nights.

The Glee Club, Birmingham
We know not everyone is a party animal, so it is nice to know that there is an alternative night out for those who fancy something a bit more low key. Birmingham’s Glee Club offers a great night out if you and your friends just fancy a good old laugh.
It plays host to up-and-coming comedians and musicians. Located in the heart of the city’s Chinese Quarter, just a short walk from the train station, it’s surrounded by pubs, clubs and restaurants.
Blind Tiger, Shrewsbury
Love cocktails and beer? Blind Tiger is one of a handful of clubs in Shrewsbury that serve up some pretty nice cocktails alongside bottled and draft beers.
Their cocktail menu is packed with variety so you are sure to find something that will suit you. Once your drink has been crafted by one of their mixologists, you can sit down to play a couple of board games. A nice change if you’re not too much of a clubbing person.
Karaoke Box, Birmingham
Nothing really says a night out on the town like a karaoke bar! From Prince to Taylor Swift to Radiohead, if you name a song the chances are it is probably on the list of songs on offer for you to sing badly to at Karaoke Box.
You can book your own booth at Karaoke Box, so there’s no need to worry about embarrassing yourself in front of members of the public as you belt out Total Eclipse of the Heart. Top that off with a great choice of drinks and you’re bound to have a quality night out.
