Stacey Budd reviews the clubbing scene this March

Fancy heading somewhere this weekend, that isn’t as uninspiring and predictable as your usual Saturday night out? Are you looking for a chic spot, which boasts not only a unique and intriguing setting, but also a heartpounding playlist which will have you on your feet until the early hours? Then why not head on over to Thirteen Degrees, the finest that Cheltenham’s clubbing scene has to offer.

Situated on St.George’s Road, just around the corner from the Royal Well Bus Station, this quirky club boasts both class and character, all wrapped up within a striking Georgian setting. Set across three floors of an old Regency town house, just a stone’s throw from fashionable Montpellier, this stylish and sultry venue certainly offers something to suit all tastes.

The high ceilings and the winding staircases make for a dramatic venue, with each stairway leading to an impressive and original space which offers the best in Chart hits, Dance and House classics, and alternative Indie. Thirteen also offers a pre-club Terrace bar, which provides cocktails and live music, for those looking to get in the party spirit before hitting the dance floor later on.

Thirteen encourages a strict “good attitude” policy, so expect a relaxed and friendly atmosphere from the clientele once you have passed through the doors. Expect to be greeted by attentive cloakroom staff, who guide you into the low-lit lounge area, where you can sit and relax with friends. You will also find a well stocked bar at Thirteen, full of beers, wines, and plenty of cocktail options, so you’re sure to find whatever takes your fancy.

Thirteen takes bookings, and are able to offer an extensive catering service, along with themed club nights. “Friday Happy Hour” means 2 for 1 offers on all drinks before midnight, and “Sindays” offer the ultimate close to your weekend, with music from X-Factor Beatbox band Duke, live DJs, and acoustic sets.

So if you’re looking for a chilled evening sipping cocktails, a night on the dance floor, or the ultimate close to a blow-out Bank Holiday weekend, Thirteen Degrees is certain to provide whatever it is your looking for.
