G-A-Y Bar

G-A-Y Bar photo


G-A-Y Bar, on Canal Street is right in the heart of Manchester's gay village. It's a fun party spot and sister bar to G-A-Y Late in Leicester Square, London. It's part of the G-A-Y empire and offers the same great deals on drinks ( including all drinks just £1.50 on certain nights). Just like G-A-Y Late, it serves up weather forecast style cocktails including their Snow Plough, Thunder & Lightning and Deep Puddle for £5.50 a jug - bargain!

This bar is licensed till late but some nights are members only, so check event nights. Membership grants you free entry to all G-A-Y venues in the UK.

<p>Avoid like the plague!! Shockingly bad. Bouncers are rude and prejudiced. Drinks are watered down and throughout the night, the vibes are negative and you feel unsafe. If you want to enjoy your night, absolutely avoid this place.</p>
