The 22-year-old sustained serious head and neck injuries but was conscious and breathing.
Paramedics took him to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after the incident, which happened outside Po Na Na in Bank Plain, Norwich, at 12.20am this morning.
He was later transferred to a specialist unit at Addenbrooke's in Cambridge and police said this morning he was still in a serious condition and likely to be in hospital for some time.
The victim is believed to have been attacked by one member of a small group of men, and who ran off in the direction of King Street.
Bank Street, off Upper King Street, was this morning cordoned off with police tape, with a green first aid kit still resting in the middle of the street.
