what a fantastic venue! about time southampton had somewhere like this.
oceana takes up the space of what used to be ikon, diva, jumping jaks and hotshots.
it's massive, with several bars and nightclubs. it's like a maze and all interjoined from the inside.
fridays are free to get in, but you have to get stamped into each area - so make sure you go into each entrance once at the start of the night, then you can access all areas from the inside..nb most areas are over 18s but one or two are over 21s. it's about £7 on a saturday but expect to queue unless you pre-order your tickets on the web, in which case you get to queue-jump for free (recommended!).
drinks are priced quite reasonably - not overinflated as you might expect. all the glasses are plastic but instead of the usual student quality plastic glass, they're quite sturdy and nicely shaped!
there's a real mix of age groups and music styles so something for everyone.
lastly, they've really got their act together for us smokers - there's a smoking area close to every part of the club - but beware they get packed!
overall a great place for a night out.
Oceana is a great club which is new to Southampton. It has different bars and clubs inside. The club can accommodate 4000 people, making it the largest Ocena in the country. It is quite expensive to get in to. The drink prices are okay. They play some great music and a different genre depending on what room you are in. Some of the rooms are 20/25+ on a Friday and Saturday. They have smoking terraces throughout the building.
Oceana is a big nightclub in Southampton for 400 people. Wednesday night is Student Night entitled Get Lost! because you actually will. It is massive and, depending on what happens, you can have a great night or a bad one.
There are 3 different rooms: Louisiana is a cheesy room, Ice bar is R'n'B, dance etc and then there is a Disco room
Overall, it is a good place to go, one of the nicest looking clubs in Southampton - definitely better than Jesters
Where do I start with this establishment?
1) The sound system makes the tracks sound like a piece of chalk scraping against a blackboard.
2) The DJ never play any fresh 0-day releases its all the same outdated tunes nothing new nothing fresh.
3) The smell is vile.
4) The majority of people that go their are the ones that were dropped as children. ( I dont even know why I took a freinds advice to go their maybe I was dropped I don't know)
5) The bouncers are morons yeh I have low self esteem thats why my head is down its not because I am hammered I haven't even had a drink.
6) Drinks prices are a bit steep but what do you expect.
1) Fast service
That`s about it really.
The massage ladies love Oceana. The music is just dance enough to get the heart pumping and not so much you feel you've just run a marathon. There is always something happening, lots of promotional nights and it attracts a young but not too young crowd (avoid student night!)
I really wonder how people can enjoy a night in Oceana. Getting there is the first problem. Take a cab or walk in a large group, Ocean village is in the grim south, a couple of minutes off the city center, not a nice place to be after nightfall. The place itself is way too massive for the number of people that are actually going there. So you will be freezing even when you're dancing all night which you won't unless you have drunk yourself deaf. Horrible music! As if the DJ himself has not heard any music but BBC1's Friday evening trash. The prices are ok, but the drinks are less than mediocre.The crowd is as you would expect it to be in a place like this. If the first thing I have to say to a man is: Get your hands off my bum, I am not really interested in getting to know himAll in all: Don't go there!
well thank god the owners organised a facelift an relaunched ikon and diva. Whilst i always enjoyed a good night here, it did seem as though it was getting quieter and quieter here everytime i went, and when you have the size of this place with only a few bods in, whoa it's quiet!
So Oceana is the new kid on the block and it seems to have done the trick, plenty of new decor to stare at, lots of bars still which really helps the queues, and one of the first places to offer smoking areas dedicated to all of you puffers out there!
This place is well worth a visit, get there early and you'll benefit from still having cash on you when you get through the entrance, other wise you might lose it on the entrance fees after 11.
Watch out for a little trouble from time to time, like any big club i suppose, this place can have it's fair share!
club is ok. closing too early... like everywhere in the uk...
drinks are affordable but you have to wait for them. music was good when i was there. later at night much drum n base if my memory is correct ;-)
this place is OK. Disco is disco-ey enough for me. earliest they played was Chesney Hawkes!! the decor is lovely and the drinks are reasonable!
