Timepiece is always an experience, it's a kinda seedy bar-live-music-club venue that everyone in Exeter (apart from your mum) seems to end up in at the end of the night. And I have to say Timepiece is fun! Generally most people are pretty trolleyed when in Timepiece, but generally it's all about having a good time, and it's really friendly.
In the last decade the young, beautiful and urban hip people of Exeter would have gathered here, had Exeter been able to produce its share of bohemia, but times have changed and Exeter has become quite glamorous, but Timepiece has not been forsaken. What's great is that there is quite a mix here from aging dilettantes to freshfaced students, and everyone just gets down and has a great time. Maybe it's the way they mix their drinks, but when in Timepiece you feel like it's a great party and you are there to have fun.
It's one of the latest places open for a drink in Exeter, hence its huge popularity esp towards the dry end of the night. Be warned there are massive queues to get in before 10pm, as there is an entrance charge afterwards of £5. Get in there early!
Timepeice is a great place to have a night out in exeter, slightly away from the hustle and bustle of this city it is located.
nice atmosphere with plenty of outdoor areas to cool off, nice bars inside to buy many drinks to fully complete your night out in exeter.
beware of queues or fri and sat
Timepiece is the best night club in Exeter. The terrace is a great place to escape too if it gets a bit hot.
It often plays host to student nights and special events in the week too.
Even the bar downstairs is a good one.
Timepiece hosts Collision on a Friday night which is Exeter's best Indie night, queues are usually fairly long just before 11pm so get there early.
Definitley one of the better nightclubs in Exeter. They have lots of outdoor areas which is nice if you want to cool down and they have a smokers area outside as well. There is also a burger bar which does amazing burgers.
I got a kick in from the staff once when i wanted to go back in to get my mobile phone, and no apology, so thumbs down for the voilent door staff! - This was 6 years ago so they have possibly changed. A big venue, great big bar and great music, a big terrace, right in the middle of town so easy to get to by taxi, bus or to walk to.
Timepiece is ok, quite big, 3 floors had a few good nights here
Quite a nice bar, very big and spacious. (although you cannot tell that it is on the weekend!) Option of going to club upstairs. There are very fun nights out to be had here.
This is by far the best club in town as you can wear what you like and isn't your typical meat market. Downstairs is the wine bar (which is free entry) with seating, a small dance area and DJ. The wine bar has a great atmosphere with candles and proper pub paraphernalia.
For the smokers there is a beer garden with heaters, scattered amongst which are gravestones! The first floor is the main club area which plays indie/rock on a Friday night and a wide range of cheese/chart on a saturday night. The second floor is the smaller balcony bar which is often the best place to go for a less roudy, quieter dance. This usually plays a mixture of hip-hop and funk.
Good way to end a night out, door staff are wannabe's but never will be. Have seen them be complete jerks with people waiting to get in.
Once you get in it's not too shabby, music's ok, atmosphere quite good. Would not go out of my way to go there, but have an ok time when we do end up there..
Timepiece, where do you start! Several floors all with sticky floors that you can hear and feel with every step, apart from that most people love it! It has 2 floors playing different kinds of music, and yes they have even played some Drum and Base before! It is a typical going out place, cheesy pop and R & B on a Friday and Saturday night but of course quite good if you have had a few drinks. They have got a nice outside bit with picnic tables that you can go and relax on. My experience there is I have always met nice random people that you can just dance with or have the most peculiar conversations with outside. I have never come across any violence which is a plus! Timepiece is a great fun place playing the usual on weekends with a few themed nights during the week to match different tastes.
defo the best! love friday nights here!
