A popular hit with students and hipsters and drinkers a-like, The Venue in Deansgate is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays playing Retro, Funk, Soul and Indie music. The dance floor is normally packed, as is the bar, with drinks starting at £1 for shots, £1.60 for vodka & bottles. Leather sofas plus damask and animal wallpaper give the seating areas a retro and unusual vibe.

With an eclectic music policy, The Venue hosts a diverse selection of cracking club nights. Wednesday is Uproar, an indie night of epic proportions. Expect everyone from Oasis and Arctic Monekys, to Echobelly and Disco Down to make the playlist. Fridays is Twist & Shout, the ultimate retro session, with the very greatest 50s, 60s and 70s tunes. Then it's time for Indiependence on Saturdays, with MGMT to Dr Dre, Pulp, Blur, MIA, Florence, and Swedish House Mafia - among others - bringing the tunes for one massive indie dance party.

Laid back atmosphere, cheap drinks and great music that isn't the same old stuff every other club seems to play. Good crowd that loves a sing a long, especially at the end of the night

Great place, especially for the students, it's nice to have music that isn't the usual chart hits x
