Black Dog Ballroom New Wakefield Street


The second Black Dog Ballroom venue, Black Dog NWS is a New York style speakeasy, diner with a pool room, covered roof terrace complete with BBQ in the summer and basement bar and club. We also have our own pin-code protected private members’ Ballroom and bespoke karaoke booth.

If the main bar just isn't lively enough for you, you can head to the basement club - Underdog. The room is spacious but dark and dimly lit to give it that feeling of secrecy, making it a great place to blow off some steam with the students and party goers out of the way of the more sensible, young professional types at the bar upstairs. Black Dog Ballroom NWS is an ideal place to go for after work drinks and to host private events. 

All of the live sport is shown here on a weekly basis on our giant HD projector screen situated on the covered roof terrace. What better excuse to get together some mates for a burger, beer and some great sporting action.

Manchester’s cocktail lovers can pick from the three packages on offer: the Mexican-inspired ‘Poco Loco’ package, the New York disco style ‘Studio 54’, or the prohibition-themed ‘Boardwalk’ option. The cocktail master classes are available at both the Black Dog Ballroom Northern Quarter and New Wakefield Street venues. They cost £25.00 per person and Black Dog Ballroom can accommodate for parties of four to twenty people. Bespoke classes are also available for larger groups.
