Now in it's 13th year as Nottingham's



The Big O as we like to call proud of what it does.


Unashamedly non-pretentious, our musical tastes cover just about every possible popular genre you could mention.


If it's Pop you're after you can expect to have your ears pleasured by the likes of....

One Direction...Bieber...Busted...Katy Perry...etc


If it's Dance you can expect to shake your ass to...

Calvin Harris....Sigala...Clean Bandit...


If you like your Dance a little harder there's always....

Disclosure...Rudimental...Pendulum...Chase & Status


Fancy some R&B....

We always got room for Rihanna...Beyonce...Drake etc


For all you Indie kids....

Bastille...Mumford...Kings of Leon....The Killers


And finally for all you Cheese heads....

The obligatory Baywatch...sing-along to H.S.M...

And more.


There is literally something for everyone....every night!





The Big O has 2  official University affiliated nights.


                        : Nottingham Trent University

The Official Clubs & Societies Night.

Now into it's 16th (we think) year at Ocean.

Sports Teams & Societies don random fancy dress,

Visit their sponsor bars, and end up in the Big O.

To put it simply.....Messy.


              : The University of Nottingham

The Official Uni Friday night.

Celebrating 13 years at the Big O this year!!

Tickets selling out weeks in advance....queues at 9pm.

Regular features of this EPIC Friday night.

We did warn you this is not like any other nightclub.

To put it simply.....Legendary.



We are also the venue for UofN's 'Karni' events...

As well as occaisional events such as the Medics Cocktail Party, Full Moon Parties and End Of Exams Specials. Watch out in your halls for more information, posters, flyers etc.

OUR NIGHTS                                                          UNI ID?


Do you need to bring it??

Yes you do...

All our our nights are officially affiliated with the Universities in Nottingham so you will need to show your relevant Uni ID on the door.


We do understand that sometimes you may have friends from home that go to other Uni's come to visit you.

We have a simple rule...

If your friends are nice, we are nice.                            But please try and get in touch with us in advance.
