QX’s Top Picks for September in Gay Manchester

Bloom 100 Bloom Street M1 3LY

Most flowers only bloom in the spring or early summer, but Bloom is open all year long. And even better, it’s open all week long! It’s always a fresh young crowd who know how to party. It’s very popular with students so September means a fresh crop of hot young things will be rolling into town.

Basement Complex Sauna 18 Tariff Street, M1 2FN

Right in Manchester’s gay Village, there’s nowhere better to go and get a little hot and steamy. It’s kitted out with a sauna and steam room, as well as 2 spas. It’s open all week so it’s the perfect place to head whenever the urge takes you. They’re super friendly and the guys there are always up for anything.


Cruz 101 101 Princess Street M1 6DD

They knocked it out of the park with their Pride celebrations, and they’re back in full force this September. There’s nowhere like it for dancing until the early hours, playing the sickest pop anthems and serving up yummy drinks. Boyz, queens and booze. What more could you want? Sunrise always comes way too soon.

New Union Showroom 111 Princess Street, M1 6BJ

Nowhere else in Manchester will you find this much drag shoved into one venue. This hotel’s showroom is always serving up a great cross-section of the drag scene, from seasoned favorites to new talent. Its stage is also the perfect place to live out your own diva fantasy with some kitsch karaoke.

Eagle Bar 15 Bloom Street M1 3HZ

A typical night at the Eagle is… unpredictable. It’s such an amazing mixed crowd in there, form muscle hunks to the odd drag queen. They’re super friendly and it’s the perfect place to make friends or get a little flirty. Get your dance on, get your drink on and take your top off.

Molly House 26 Richmond Street M1 3NB

When all the crazy clubbing gets to be way too much then there’s nothing like a nice, chilled bar to kick back in. Removed ever so slightly from the madness of Canal Street, it’s a welcoming joint with beer and tapas a’ plenty. The perfect setting for a first date with that Tinder guy you’ve been chatting to.
