Possibly the most cheesy club I have ever been to in my entire life. There is terrible music playing all night and you can only pay for drinks in cash whic is just very inconvinient. Also why is there carpet in a club?? It stinks like urine always.

10/10 would recommend. VKs soaked carpets, cheesy music and fancy dress what more could you want. Don't go to the Uni Of friday night tho they don't even wear fancy dress??? Weird right.

Great on a Wednesday night. Love the music and the cheesy vibe that goes with it. Big main room with lots of bars.

Best student night out in Nottingham is Ocean Wednesday's! So much fun to go out with your sports club or society in fancy dress. Biggest thing I'll miss after graduating.

An amazing night out for all stages of university life! No better way to celebrate the end of the week than heading to ocean for a dance and some cheesy music. By far my favourite part of the Nottingham experience

If you're into listening to Drum and bass mixed into wonder wall whilst being thrown up on by the rugby captain wearing a mankini, Ocean is your desired Wednesday night! It's school hall like design is a perfect fit for the party goers who's behaviour fits the hall.

Fantastic night out! Plays current pop and classic throwbacks, some cheesy stuff thrown in... club owner is there most nights which gives it a friendly feel and drinks are average price for a club in Notts. Would highly recommend.

Cheesy music and sticky carpets... but by far the best student night of the week! Same faces, same music and the same costumes every Wednesday but it remains a cornerstone of Nottingham Trent nightlife and an institution for students.

Friendly atmosphere and great cheesy tunes. Best Friday night in Notts and drinks are fairly cheap.

Ocean nightclub is a sensational experience for any university student, especially on their student night for Nottingham Trent University on a Wednesday. Societies dress up as their chosen themes which can be as wacky as 'mankinis' to 'emergency services'. The staff are friendly and the set up of the club is great; the main dance floor is huge, there is a seated area, and an upstairs area with 4 bars. The toilets are huge which is helpful and the music is cheesy but fun. The only thing is that the club itself is quite dirty (a sticky floor etc) and the smoking area is tiny, it is literally just a section barricaded by metal fences. The drinks prices are quite expensive and they only take cash which personally I think loses them money as people tend to run out quite quickly (they do provide cash machines but the queues are massive so I never bother). Overall, ocean is a great club for a uni student and I would recommend a dress up night for anyone who wants to go!

Always a great night out, never had a bad experience at an Ocean Wednesday. They play the best songs & the staff are always so friendly.

i am a student and Nottingham Trent university and ocean is one of the best night out during the week. The atmosphere with the cheesy music and everyone dressed up is brilliant and it's very student friendly. The only issue is that it is quite far out of the city centre so the walk back home is very long.

During freshers week I was first introduced to Ocean. After hearing the rumour that chlamydia was found in the carpet, my expectations were very low. Smelling like urine and covered in carpets, it wasn't a pleasant experience. But going to Ocean Wednesdays and being surrounded by drunk half naked rugby boys my opinion has changed. The music is all the sing along cheese you could as for. Drinks are extremely cheap but you can only buy in cash.

Great atmosphere, avenue easy to get to. Feel good cheesy music and a great party vibe. Great if you are a University of Nottingham student.

Location is difficult to get to on most buses. The venue only has 1 room and 1 type of music but it is thei club's niche and what it's famous for. The tickets are pretty good value and since they're not sold through any online server, there's ko booking fee. The night usually has quite friendly vibes and people (both the customers and the staff) tend to be nice. The music is very specific to a person's taste but the majority of students, including me, love it. It could do with less cheesy songs once in a while though. Maybe some classic r'n'b here and there.

Very friendly to students. The music is great and very cheesy and is good for £5. It is full of cheap drinks and is very safe. There is a cash machine inside if you need to get money off your card which is very useful. The venue is very close to town meaning you can walk. It is also 2 seconds away from the bus stop and close to a Mac Donald's for late night food.

Not told before that can only use cash , the club had carpets so seems unhygenic, should be able to use cash and drinks are small for price. Overall not too bad if with a good group

There is really good music with lots of cheesy music as well as an amazing atmosphere on a Wednesday when people all dress up. There is no club like it. To improve would be to have card payments and be easier to get tickets

The venue is nice because it is not too big and there aren't separate rooms! Atmosphere is always friendly.. being a student only nightclub makes it feel safer. The music is questionable but always something you can sing along to, the staff are amazing and the drinks are reasonably priced !

Ocean is a fab place to go on Wednesday everyone is from Nottingham Trent and is with a team or society. It's a great super night out and everyone is loving life in that place. I truly recommend!!!!

Perfect cheesy night club with a friendly and funny manager. You have to embrace the sticky floors as part of its charm. Same songs every week so no matter how drunk you are, you know you be able to belt out at least one line of Mr Brightside.

Tackiest and cheesiest club I've ever been to. Felt like I was at a year 7 disco! Firstly, the floor is carpet which means the whole place stinks of whatever has been split over the years (rank). Secondly, the music is so shit , not even normal cheesy music- somehow worse. Finally you can only pay by cash which is a major inconvinience. F ocean!!
