Now we all know the clubbing scene in Manchester is epic, with some of the world’s most famous clubs located in the city centre.
Gay Manchester clubs are no exception, so let your hair down in one of the below disco cathedrals!
GAY MANCHESTER CLUBS
Address: 105 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6DD.
Tel: 0161 236 9266
Night People is the new alter-ego of the club formally known as Alter-Ego. Still with us? It’s a gig venue which then transforms into a club once the encores are over, leaning towards indie, alternative and funk. It also hosts legendary northern soul club night Twisted Wheel every second and fourth Sunday of the month.
Address: 100 Bloom St, Manchester, M1 3LY.
Tel: 0161 459 4660
After AXM closed its doors for the last time, a brand new club BLOOMED in its place (ha!). Bloom Nightclub is open every night of the week for as much drinking and revelry as your little gay heart desires.
Address: 101 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6DD.
Tel: 0161 950 0101
We love a good Cruz, but we can always do with a brush-up on our skills, so where better than Cruz 101? One of the longest running LGBT venues in the UK, you’d have bumped into the lads from Queer As Folk here in the 90s. You know, if they were real people. But anyway, this is the gay Manchester big daddy and he’s happy to see you any night of the week from 11pm.
Address: 101 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6DD
Tel: 0161 236 0666
The only rock venue in Manchester you need to know about! Satan’s Hollow sounds scary but it’s actually an awesome LGBT-friendly venue specialising in alternative and rock events. If you want to throw your body around a mosh pit to Marilyn Manson’s “mOBSCENE” with other fit indie Cindys, this is your best bet!
Address: Richmond St, Manchester M1 3HE
Tel: 0161 236 5437
Alright, so no ‘into the void’ jokes here because that’s just lazy writing. But you should definitely ENTER the VOID (sigh) as it’s a banging after-hours underground house club for anyone that can’t stop moving when the lights come on. Katy B approves of this club. Okay, she hasn’t, but she would if she went. They’re open until 10am every weekend, because who needs sleep anyway?
