This is a go-to nightlife location in Southampton; however the staff were rude and bossy by 10:30pm on a Saturday - by which time of course there was no pressure on them, people had barely begun to arrive. Will not be coming back.

Last night I went to Popworld for a drink with some friends and we saw this guy who works there who absolutely made our night. Such a great spirit, everyone should be a little more like Toby.

Couldn't even get to or see the bar to order a drink! There are too many customers for the size of the bar and not enough staff. People were leaving as much as they were coming in due to not being able to be served

It's 'popworld' what more could you ask for?! Classic cheesy 90's music, nice staff, great drink prices, plenty of space and waiting times minimal. Highly recommend if you are into your old school tunes, they do mix it up abit and put the latest tunes...More
