    Thirsty Thursday Every Thursday

    Bloom, 100 Bloom Street, M3 3LY


    Who has the patience to wait for Friday night anymore? Everyone knows that Thursday nights are where it’s at. Fridays are usually a write-off anyway, so you may as well go all out on Thursday. Over at Bloom, they let you party on a budget, with drinks from £2 and £1 Entry if you’re a student. Blasting out those commercial hits is DJ Josh Smith who always gets the crowd going. Bloom’s where you head to let your hair down, drink a little too much and twerk the night away.

    Sunday Service Sunday 14th April

    Eagle Bar Manchester, 15 Bloom Street M1 3HZ

    In the hands of drag deviant Sandra, Eagle Bar welcome you to their Sunday service. The face of an angel and the mouth of a lorry driver, no one is safe from her venomous tongue. They’re going all out for this year’s Rubber weekend at Eagle so expect to see a pair or two of rubber boots. KY Kelly will also be mincing her behind about the place, giving a healthy dollop of cabaret and a game of Bingo with cash prizes up for grabs. If you went a little too hard on your Saturday then they’ll be sure to take care of you, with free bar snacks to nibble on and drink offers when you’re up for some hair of the dog.

This men-only party is one where the lads can hang out, get social and get flirty to some throwback hits. It’s Free Entry all evening long, so enjoy some classic pop tunes courtesy of the house. REM has long become a go-to for the city’s bears, so if you’re big and fluffy or into men of the big and fluffy kind, it’s the only place you should be going on a Saturday night.
