It is fair to say that Coventry is one of the provincial cities that provides plenty of entertainment for the local residents but, so far at least, is not a destination that attracts people to it for its night-life. With two universities in the city, during the academic term time the city is generally livelier than when the student population isn't around. That said there are plenty of good bars, restaurants, theatres and clubs available in the city. Also, within 15 minutes of the city is the NEC arena (National Exhibition Centre Arena) and the touring shows it brings to the West Midlands.
