Gay Bars And Clubs In Manchester

Found across Gay Village and the famous Canal Street, gay bars and clubs in Manchester certainly aren't few and far between. These fun spots are renowned for party antics, from drag divas strutting their stuff around you and karaoke before the main event, to heaving dancefloors packed out with an inclusive crowd.

New York, New York

Another venue that may not have club status, but has has heck of a party attitude, New York, New York is mistaken for one time and again. From the glistening walls and rowdy drag acts to varied crowd, this place has all the fun for a night out in the city. 

G-A-Y Bar

Right in the heart of all the gay bars on Manchester Canal Street stands G-A-Y, which is serving up its own blend of thumping hits and smooth tunes. With drinks deals throughout the week too, there's plenty to keep the party rocking and the drinks flowing.

Cruz 101

One of the longest running and most popular gay clubs in Manchester city centre, Cruz 101 offers affordable entry and drinks. With a main area and a basement space, alongside different DJs or music genres each night, there's something for everyone.


If you find yourself in Gay Village, Vanilla is a Canal Street favourite that's ideal for pocket-friendly tipples and late-night dancing. While not a club by nature, the intimate dancefloor and low ceilings here get packed come sundown, giving you that all-out atmosphere any booming night needs.
