    Cheap drinks in clubs or bars, any suggestions? 22nd Nov 17 at 9:16 AM
    Hello, anyone know of any inexpensive kind of soft or alcoholic drinks you can get at most clubs/ pubs/ bars? Trying to save money but I live in London and that is tricky while trying to have a social life


    I drink little alcohol so coke or lemonade are fine, but a pint of coke in most places almost costs like a pint of lager (lovely London prices!)


    Any suggestions for inexpensive soft or alcoholic drinks to get I might not be aware of?

    Thank you

    Tap water is free
    For thousands of people this Christmas, their must-have gift is far more vital than the latest gadget or toy – it’s blood. Please don’t let the festivities and cold weather prevent you from giving them the ultimate gift… give blood.

    Don't know about London, but round here Wetherspoons charge 40p for a soda water & lime, or plain soda water is free. Unlike some pubs that have the cheek to charge £1 for a soda water ( by which I mean out of the dispenser, not a bottle )
    I may not know much about art, but I know what I like.

    agree with tap water - some people think it's "boring" but apart from real ale or single malt whisky and single origin coffee it's my "staple" drink and i'm not bored by drinking it

    Blackcurrent and soda as another alternative. Used to drink this as a student and still do if I'm out and not drinking.

    When I use to go out I use to wear a blazer most of the time, Get a 12oz hip flask and that will hold about 8 shots, buy a soft drink and be creative. Saved me ££££ over the years.

    Cappuccino. Alternatively, just get a drink that you dont like, so it will just sit there with you for the night....
