G-A-Y, 63 Richmond Street, Manchester, M1 3WB

Smack bang in the centre of Manchester’s Canal Street, colourful club on the corner, G-A-Y, is popular with a youngish crowd looking for pop tunes, cheap drinks and a lively atmosphere. And there’s a rooftop terrace for the smokers.

Sister to the famous London club and late-night drinking institution, G-A-Y’s northern presence is licensed until late however some nights are members only, so check the events listings on their facebook page. Membership does grant you free entry to both venues.

Once inside, glug weather-forecast cocktail jugs at £5.50 each, including the delightfully-monikered Snow Plough, Thunder & Lightning and Deep Puddle.

Events aplenty at Pride and on Sparkle Weekend there’s a Glitterball where you can get sparkly-spangly as part of the nation’s weekend promoting Trans awareness and rights with a focus on greater representation of trans and non-binary artists and performers.

Camptastic pop parties abound with aftershow shindigs on nights that acts such as Katy Perry and Taylor Swift perform. Quite rightly, the club devotes an entire weekend to Britney. Or there’s bingo, cabaret, traffic-light parties and singing competitions. Take your pick!
