    Battle of the Divas–Ariana Grande 8th of February

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

    January? Thank you, next. They’re powering on with pitting the biggest names in the business against each other, from Beyoncé to Mariah and this week it’s Ariana’s turn. They’re serving up £2.50 drinks all evening long, except when there’s a Grande song playing they drop to £2. She may be the queen of flexing her riches in ‘7 rings’ but you know even she’d get down with these prices. Get your gaggle of gays together and get grooving to Grande.


    STRETCH 15th of February

    Eagle Bar Manchester, 15 Bloom Street M1 3HZ


    We’re damn sure it’s not a stretch to say you should most definitely check out this fresh fetish night. Those naughty boys over at Eagle are getting all rubbered up for a night of skin-tight debauchery. Sam Barclay brings in this brand spanking new night, in partnership with Regulation-London bringing you the best on the market when it comes to rubber fear. Head on over with your kinky friends for a night of drink, dance and play.


    Beareoke tuns 10 10th of February

    REM Bar, 33 Sackville Street M1 3LZ

    Imagine! An entire decade of getting those talented furry creatures up on stage to sing out some Celine. From humble beginnings over at The Outpost, they’ve found a home at REM Bar and are now turning the party on this huge milestone. Starting at 7pm a crowd of burly, bearded boys will be lining up for their turn on the mic. Whether you’re a cub with a taste for stardom, or an admirer who enjoys seeing a bear do his thing then be sure to saunter on over.


    One Night in Babylon 22ndand 23rd of February

    Cruz 101, 101 Princess Street M1 6DD

    Celebrating 20 years of Queer as Folk, Cruz 101 are taking things up a gear. Any keen-eyed viewer will have seen that those late night scenes at Club Babylon may look familiar if you’ve had a night out at Cruz… Friday night they’ll be turning back time *Cher hair flick* with Craig Law playing those throwback bangers. Then on Saturday DJ James Bowers will be pumping out that full Babylon experience with some dance classics. Not to be missed.

    100 Bloom Street, M3 3LY

    Dry January is OVER. Can we get an amen? Start out your sopping wet February with a heavy one at Bloom. It’s all about that fun young crowd that are down to get DOWN. Playing everything from commercial hits to chunky dance beats, a night dropping it like it’s hot at Boom sure beats a boring zumba class. Your nights of twerking can make up for that over-ambitious gym routine you’ve already given up on. They’re doors now stay open until 5am from Sunday to Thursday so why wait until the weekend?
