The main nightspot for locals are a congregation of bars and clubs on the Oxford Tce by the river, nicknamed "The Strip".
The recently developed South of Lichfield (SOL) lane has also become a popular and exciting spot, and is more fasionable than the strip. The lane is dotted with excellent bars, cafes and clothing boutiques, and leads to a small square which becomes very lively at night.
The Dux de Lux is a real Christchurch classic drinking spot. The Dux brews their own award winning beer including the Nor'West ale and Ginger Tom (alcoholic ginger beer). Enjoy a beer in the sun or stay late for frequent (and mostly free) gigs from local bands and beyond.
C1 Cafe on High Street has a cult following, with excellent coffee (roasted at the back of the shop), bites and skiddies - aka chocolate milk!
