  • Central
    Bar
    Stylish in a clean, chain bar kind of way. Large enough to mean there is nearly always somewhere to sit down. Former premises of Russell Acott - instruments and sheet music sales, 1894-1999 - as the tiled mosaic on the doorway floor testifies.

    Tasty cocktails; whole street front section opens directly onto the pavement for summer. "Heavenly Hour" from 4.30 - 9pm every day. Outside catering available.

    Bar
    The purgatory of Bridge, many fear being relegated to this side-bar when the Bridge line is too long.
  • Cowley Road Area
    Bar
  • Central
    Bar
    Really just the swish waiting station for tables at the restaurant above, this bar serves tasty, pricey drinks and has one entirely glass wall.
  • Cowley Road Area
    Pub
    A pub/bar/eatery hang out zone on the Cowley Road on the site of the old Elm Tree pub. Has a welcoming ethos and want to be doing something a bit different from your regular pub or bar, opening itself out to being used by local people; there is a space for pop-up shops on Saturdays, they are planning to have pingpong tournaments, groovy quizzes, live gigs, and different local DJ's on Fridays and Saturday nights, when they are open until 2am.
  • Cowley Road Area
    Pub
    Missing the homeland, or just after an old-fashioned pint at old-fashioned prices (& perhaps a game of darts)? Then the Swan, Irish to the hilt & then some (especially when it comes to the jukebox & the decor - hurling & horseracing posters), is for you. Opposite the Crown House, east Oxford's Irish social club (see Shamrock bar, below), the Swan is not for the faint-hearted - but once adopted by the publicans, you'll find it warm and friendly. Does not accept cards.

  • Cowley Road Area
    Restaurant
    Shisha, mocktails and food. All Champion League games shown live. They say "Oxford is home to a variety of shisha lounges, but we hope to make Cloud 10 your second home." Their marketing is keen on Fridays, and doesn't think much of Mondays. You can charge your phone and while away the time with a big shisha pipe and a big group of friends. The mocktails look grand and are served a in a variety of on-trend vessels. NB This bar serves Shisha but no alcohol.
