We’re sure you know A-Level results day is coming up. You’re probably either buzzing to get your results or dreading it so much it hurts whenever someone even mentions it. We feel you. We’ve all been there.
But whether you get your desired results or not, there’s one super important thing to remember: there are some killer A-Level results parties going down all across the country.
If you fail it all or ace it all, it doesn’t matter. What matters is celebrating whatever it is you’re excited about (your results, leaving college behind, or starting a new chapter) by dancing, having a laugh and having some £2 shots with your pals. This might be your last chance before you’re all off to uni or work.
So here are the best places to celebrate and some A-Level results parties we’ve hand-picked because they look unreal. Enjoy.

Bristol nightlife is legendary. It’s easily one of the best nights out in the UK and, therefore, perfect for letting loose and celebrating your results, or just celebrating being finished with college. Bristol is home to killer clubs and bars such as Thekla, The Lanes, The Fleece, Basement 45, Motion, Mbargo, and Walkabout. Any night out at these clubs will be unreal.

Recognised for being safe, having a diverse range of venues, and basically being unreal, Nottingham has been known as one of the best nights out in the country for over a decade now. It simply never misses. Das Kino is a fantastic choice, offering pizza, ping pong, and DJs every weekend. Bodega is a great choice too, with livelier and quieter sections. But if you want to go mad, deffo head to Stealth or Rock City for their A-Level results do.

Hot parties: Baa Bar A Level Results Night, Basscadet Presents - Therapy Thursday: A-Level Results Party
Ah, Liverpool. If you ever need a killer night out, you can trust Liverpool to deliver. It’s one of those places you have to experience for yourself to truly understand its magic. But the people, the diversity of venues and club nights, and the city’s vibe definitely play a part in creating that blissful evening adventure. If you don’t head out for A-Level parties, you should deffo consider swinging by at some other point.

Hot parties: TNT x A-Level Results Special, Project A-Levels w/ Yung Filly
Water is wet, the sky is blue, and Cardiff is an insanely lively night out. These are just some facts you’d look stupid to argue against because, well, they’re facts. So if you want to party hard, you know where to go. Among the many clubs worth checking out are Walkabout, PRYZM, Story, and Tiger Tiger. Other than the cracking clubs, we love Cardiff for its people. You’ll struggle to find a friendlier bunch.

Now, we aren’t saying every Geordie’s like this, but… we’ve all seen Geordie Shore. Even if it was only a ten-second clip. That show is WILD. Again, not everyone in Newcastle’s like that, but it does highlight just how mad the city can get. In terms of popular student clubs, Howlers is a club with a massive ball pit, and Soho is a club with genuinely lethal bevs. But if they aren’t your vibe, there are loads more to discover in this rowdy city.
You only celebrate your A-Level results once, so do it properly. But here are some words of advice: go slow, savour the moment, have a laugh, learn how to prevent a hangover before you head out, and stay safe.
And when you’re finally off to uni and freshers comes around, remember we’re here to sort you out with the biggest, best, and wildest raves, club nights, and freshers events. Have a goodun!
