Underdog is closed and now trading as XOLO.

Tucked underneath Black Dog Ballroom New Wakefield Street, this cool Manchester basement club is one of the city's most stylish late night spots - combining all the cool New York style appeal of Black Dog Ballroom's other Manchester venues with a more up-tempo, party atmosphere.

The club can be accessed via its own separate entrance on New Wakefield Street, which takes you down a staircase into the darkly stylish nightclub with atmospheric lighting, a state of the art Funktion One soundsystem and red leather booted seating offering a welcome rest from the dance floor. 

With enough space for 400 clubbers, regular appearances by high profile guest DJs and some of the best club nights in Manchester hosting parties here, this is one Underdog that the Manchester nightlife community should be firmly backing. Known for their underground names in a truly underground atmosphere, the sound is on high, and so is the crowd thanks to nights such as WhoSaidWhat? and Frank.
