The revolutionary 'Student Discount Days'

Sure there are plenty of bars looking to get the students in with the appeal of cheap beer. The only problem is that, while the domestic products are alright, nothing is done with any of the great imported beer coming in.

O’C‘s is here to change all that by giving generous discounts on all of our tap selection. With a minus 2€ discount per pint you can have your choice of the best beers from around the world. Bring along your valid student ID on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays!
