If you go here you will get wasted. The cocktails are free poured Spanish style. I had the largest old fashioned I've ever had for only £4. Not top quality, obviously, but that's not the point. Very friendly staff, almost everyone gets a free shot...More

Cafe Baba is a bit of a gem down the Cowley Road. From 5pm to 8pm cocktails are 2 for £6 which is such a deal in oxford! The bartenders were friendly and we ended up having several cocktails each because they were so delicious.
