Oxford Art Factory hasn’t quite made its mind up. Is it a bar, a club, a live music venue or an art space? But that’s exactly why we love it. Your night is pretty much sorted - catch a live gig ranging from up-and-coming to international stars in the big bar without the hassle of having to do the party search once it’s over. Curtains close, beats drop and you feverishly take the dance floor. And when you least it expect it, they’ve decided to throw on another random band in the attached small bar, or a couple of performance artists in the glass cube that sits between the two spaces. Alternatively, you can split the night up: the small bar is always free and designed so you can drink in the there, oblivious to the gig next door. Recline on the couches, take in the skeletal wall murals and grab a pitcher of beer. There are cocktails too, but they don’t taste much better than their kitschy names, so stick to the jugs.
