Phineas is a spacious venue named after the mascot of an old tobacconist, which was regularly stolen by UCL students in the 1930s. 

Here, you can study and socialise during the day, or head along in the evening to one of the nightly events.

Phineas is the spiritual home of TeamUCL and host to our legendary Sports Night every Wednesday during term time! The bar is also hosting the infamous Glittoris series, our monthly LGBT+ club night as well a weekly pub quiz. Phineas is your go-to ‘something for everyone’ Union bar.

Pints start from £2.80 and wine from £2.00. We’ve something going on every night of the week and some great drink deals too.
