Nights Out in ManchesterKate Feld
They say a lot of things about Manchester, but one thing they don’t say is that it’s dead after dark. This is a city that has “up for it” written in its DNA, as the mind-boggling variety of the city’s nightspots attests. We don’t like to brag, but we’ve got it all: peaceful tiled pubs serving cool cask ales, check. Beard-stroking hipster hangouts, check. Giant clubs full of pissed-up students pogoing to Common People, check. Specialist wine bars, bouncer-patrolled footballer haunts, funky dives, indie music halls, real ale bars, jazz joints, karaoke nightbars… we could go on. For chrissakes, we even have a pub in a toilet. Here’s our guide to the city after the sun goes down. Get out there and have fun (and tell ‘em we sent ya).
