FiveSixEight is the perfect place to head for lunch after lectures or for a lively drink with a group of friends in the evening. We have a mixture of indoor and outdoor seating and show all major sporting events in HD on our massive screens and projectors. A gathering place for all students, it is truly one of the central social areas for every student at Imperial.

With pints starting from just £2.80 and a burger and chips from £6.00, FiveSixEight is great value for money.

We also hold regular events at FiveSixEight!
