Anthony Low Bar

The Student bar

The Anthony Low Building (ALB) is home to the Clare Hall student bar. The bar is fully student-run, managed by me (Emily) and run by a team of student bartenders. We have a great variety of beers, spirits, wines, and soft drinks. We also offer special drinks and cocktails during themed nights, so look out for event announcements. Our ALB open-air balcony is a great place to enjoy a drink during bar opening hours, providing a view of the Fellows' Garden and completing the splendid atmosphere of the ALB.

Due to COVID restrictions, some of our popular facilities will be off-limits at the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, though we hope to re-open these as the year goes on. These include a pool table, a foosball table, a television, a projector screen, and speakers for playing music. We also hope to re-open the space for private functions, when it becomes safe to do so, so if you would like to hold your birthday party or any other kind of event in the ALB, just drop me an email.

I look forward to welcoming you to the ALB soon. Please get in touch with any questions or if you're interested in bartending!
