Sankeys is one of Manchester’s most iconic and well-known clubs; with a sister venue in the clubbing capital of Ibiza and now New York, Sankeys has some real pedigree. After a brief closure through the summer the club is back and ready to continue it's status as a Manchester clubbing mecca. Hidden in the industrial depths of Ancoats, just out of Manchester's city centre but only a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly train and bus stations, Sankeys is the only destination for the primed clubbing crowd from far and wide.

There may be a queue when you arrive, but these move quickly and are managed efficiently. Inside expect strobes, vibrating beats and the heavy resonating sounds of whatever headlining DJ is on. Sankeys is all about the music and atmosphere so don’t expect anything too pretentious or lounge bar in look, it’s very minimalistic in it's dark and dingy style. The perfect setting to dance away the evening hours into the bitter morning.The drinks selection is small but well priced, nothing extraordinary there. But that's where the music comes in. Onto the main attraction; Sankeys is known for its great tradition in dance music and it doesn’t disappoint. With DJs playing Thursday to Saturday offering only the best in dance, techno, house and electro you can expect a dance floor full of bass worshippers. Expect some big names to grace the decks and a party vibe that will leave you speechless. 

Prices vary for events with tickets starting at around £12 and getting towards £20 for more established acts. If you are looking for a heavyweight party in Manchester then Sankeys is definitely the scene you belong in; open till 6am on Friday and Saturday nights, you can two-step and fist pump to your hearts content in this iconic Manchester club.


Average between £12-£15 depending on event.
