The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. As legend has it, the gardens are said to have been built alongside a grand palace called The Marvel of Mankind, and built by King Nebuchadnezzar II as a gift and symbol of love for his wife, Queen Amytis, because she missed the wondrous green hills and valleys of her homeland.
Having been situated right at the centre of the world, the ancient city of Babylon was an epic combination of Eastern and Western civilisation. Here at Babylon, we’re inspired by that perfect fusion of culture, and we created a menu of luscious cocktails made from a variation of ingredients, to satisfy all palettes and pay homage to that East meet West vibe. Why not take advantage of our amazing special offer of 2 for £12 on freshly made cocktails; served 7 days a week!
We also show the biggest sports events the world has to offer, including all major football and rugby tournaments and pay-per-view events. These are all shown LIVE across our multiple booth tv’s, giant raised tv’s and on our whopping 23ft projector screen.
As evening turns to night we transform into Durham’s leading nightclub and events venue, offering a variety of student and local events to entertain you 7 days a week. From Oktoberfest Bier Festivals and Darts events during the day, city leading student weekly club night events, charity fashion shows, live music, quizzes and highly renowned DJ ticket club events featuring brands and artist such as Boiler Room, Horse Meat Disco, Mella Dee, Dan Shake, Crazy P to name a few.
