Its parent group, the Rekom Group, own seven companies that are falling into administration and unfortunately (or entirely fortunately, depending on your experiences with the place) this includes Unit 1.

Gone are the days of dressing to the nines on a Tuesday, pre-drinking miles away on campus, making plans to pull your seminar crush and then absolutely bottling it in favour of depressingly sipping a vodka coke while Mr Brightside reverberates through your entire body and aforementioned seminar crush necks on with a girl much fitter than you. It’s a canon event in the life of a first-year student until the lure of TP Tuesday finally picks them off one by one like the dulcet tones of a siren’s voice.

We’ll be grateful for the closure when we realise that it also marks the end of those putrid drinks that tasted vaguely like the alcohol they claimed to be, but more so like they had been sprinkled with a touch of stagnant water, listeria and a generous helping of bitterness – or maybe that was just a lingering taste in our mouths that we became cognisant of upon entrance into pearly gates of the club.

The vibe of a Cheesy Tuesday was nostalgic! Especially if you consider the primary school disco energy to be a feeling you wish to recreate every single week. But now it’s time we stopped our mates snogging the creeps inside, saved up our pennies for the financial burden also known as Venom and turned inwards to Exeter students’ closest version of Mecca – Timepiece Nightclub and Winebar.
