The Ruby Lounge is a brilliantly unassuming live music bar and club space on the edge of the Northern Quarter.

Prohibition: Casino Royale
Leave your inhabitions at the door and step inside our world of all things vintage and Electro Swing!
For five years Prohibition and their troupe of extraordinary DJs, musicians and performers, have been dazzling the City of Manchester. So dress up in your finest vintage attire and lose yourself in our magical world of roaring twenties debauchery!
Ladies & Gentlemen we present to you, our take on Casino Royale! A glittery mix of live vintage inspired music, Electro Swing DJs and performers combined with Casino games, visuals and dazzling decor!
Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer
Quintessentially British and stupendously funny, Mr B is an act like no other! How best to describe his style?! Well it goes a little something like this... "Chap-Hop, re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen's English from whence it came." (try saying that after a few glasses of prosecco!) His legendary live recitals have earned him plaudits, largely from top shelf gentlemen's quarterlies and we can not wait to see him perform live at Prohibition!
The Swinghoppers fuse the feel-good vibe of Classic Swing with the swagger and attitude of Golden Era Hip Hop! Featuring the MC talents of Offbeat, the infamous beatbox skills of Pye (FKA Pieman), the sweet and soulful vocals of Sharleena Ray and the crowd-rocking DJ skills of Awesome Wells, the Swinghoppers combine to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
DJ Rouni (Switzerland)
All the way from Geneva, Switzerland, DJ Rouni will be bringing his up tempo mix of Electro Swing and Swing House to the party! Prohibition regulars will have heard lots of DJ Rouni's music being
played on our dancefloors including 'Entertainment' and the 'The Old Men'.
Listen to his La Swing Mixtape here:
