42nd Street is a Manchester Indie night club with a real history. The venue has been formerly known as George Bests legendary Slack Alice's club in the 1960's, making it a place of intrigue for many. Since being re-opened as 42's, it has gone on to become a popular spot for Indie lovers from all over the city. The queues outside are proof by themselves!

The friendly atmosphere and quality music is what sets this club apart from its competition. The dark walls and dimly lit rooms mean you can get your groove on to your favourite 80's tune without feeling all eyes are on you. If you go, you should expect to hear all of the most loved Indie anthems from the past five decades along with a mix of Glam, Rock&Roll and Funk. You will find the place filled with students and young professionals, and be pleasantly surprised by the cheap drinks! Like most night clubs, there is an entry fee, but it is always a good idea to keep an eye out for flyers and offers for cheap entrance.
