Bangor is one of those places where you’re either on the fringes or just a few blocks from the main drag, but it’s one of the hottest spots in town, and the only place you can actually see the stars.
That’s not to say you can’t see them on the other side of town; just don’t be fooled by their lack of glamour.
The most expensive thing to get in Bangor for a weekend is to get on the Bangor Show, a free weekend series hosted by Darlings Bangor, which has become a staple of the city for the past few years.
You can also catch some of the most popular shows on the city’s main stage, which include a pop-up art exhibition every month.
There are also plenty of nightlife options to choose from, including the Bango and The Franny in The Franks Bar and Grill, which hosts live music and cocktails and has a rotating selection of DJs and live acts.
You can also take your favourite clubs or bars out for a drink at the famous Bango Lounge.
If you want to get your bang for the buck, head over to The Frannie, a popular gay bar, where you can get a nightcap at a live DJ set and see some of Bangor’s best acts.
But for those who are looking for something a little more intimate, Bangor has its own bar, The Room, which boasts one of Bangord’s finest cocktail bars and has even hosted an after party at the local nightclub.
