Gorilla is a party institution that stands out on its own in the city. Housed in a cooler-than-cool railway arch in Oxford Road, Gorilla is both a venue for hardened party goers and cool kids. From their 600 capacity main room to a restaurant if the edibles just so take your fancy, Gorilla is one of the most unique clubs to spend the end of the world in.
Tiger Tiger isn’t just one of the biggest clubs in Manchester, but one of the most beloved. Boasting eight different themed rooms – including Lucky Voice karaoke booths – well stocked bars and a proper carefree attitude, it’s become a hit with students, hen and stag dos alike.
The Deaf Institute may never really know what it is, but Manchester knows one thing about it: they love it. From their vintage interiors and edible whoppers to fully fledged party nights, The Deaf Institute is your end of the world all rounder. Hailed by NME as a two fingers up to commercial partying, The Deaf Institute is an off-kilter late night venue where the young, cool and quirky reign supreme.

42's is one of Manchester’s favourite clubs. This indie venue has a long history, but what concerns the party-goers of this city is one thing: the music. With proper indie anthems and dancefloor fillers on the speakers, cheap drinks from the bar, and a friendly atmosphere that keeps people coming back for more.
Hailed as the joint where The Chemical Brothers kicked their wild career off, Versions is a historic club in Manchester when this city is pretty much made on historic city venues.
