No8 is a great bar during summer but what brings me back even in the colder months is the great menu and capacity for groups of friends! It’s a bar I only discovered this year it can be easy to lose as it’s hidden in the quiet, modern development of Quartermile, just on the edge of the meadows. It’s a fashionable, stylish bar that fits the uber cool, glass and steel architecture it’s surrounded by, but it delivers by offering not only great drinks but fantastic packages and deals depending on the day you go.
Students get various discounts off food but its the aptly named ‘Big Fat Saturdays’ deal that has well and truly won my heart! It features a huge steak, 4 sides and 2 bottles of wine and makes for a perfect evening of indulging with friends but come for the £10 shake and steak available all day from Sunday to Wednesday if you don’t feel quite up to the challenge.
It’s a young, stylish and fun place to visit and considering its slick interior and location, you don’t need to be a rich business man to eat and drink here – it attracts a varied group of people here just to enjoy the sun, the drinks and most importantly, the awesome food!
