Sidney Bar is the private bar for all members of Sidney Sussex College and is one the few remaining student run bars in Cambridge. The bar serves a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including a small selection on draught. As well as selling drinks, there is table football, pool, darts, a quiz machine and a small selection of snacks. The bar is main social space in the college and regularly hosts events ranging from bops to pub quizzes to music nights. We aim to provide a pleasant and comfortable social environment to the students of Sidney, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
College members are welcome to invite guests from outside the college but must sign all guests in upon arrival. Large groups (e.g. swaps or club meets) can be accomodated. However please email the bar manager to arrange a visit in advance.
Sidney Bar also caters for external events held in college, mainly society garden parties in Easter term. If you are holding an event in Sidney and would like a bar service please email the bar manager.
