Lane7 Manchester Deansgate

If you and your mates fancy a little competitive socialising, Lane7 is your best bet. They've got graffiti-covered bowling lanes for big groups, as well as retro arcade games, ping pong or pool tables, digitally enhanced darts and shuffleboard to choose from too, or you can even book a private karaoke room. Don't miss out on delicious Fat Hippo burgers either, alongside boozy slushies and Drumstick lolly cocktails.

Hashtag Parties Manchester

Grab your best mates and head to Cargo for Hashtag Parties. Their events come complete with dancing, music, drink deals, photographers and videographers to capture all the fun you'll be having on the night.

Immersive Gamebox

Electric Gamebox is bringing something a little different to your nights out with the gang. Trade in drinks at your local for an evening of interactive gaming and immersive fun within your own private spaces. Pick from a range of themed adventures, mini-activities and timed trials.


When you want to channel your inner (or not so hidden) geek on your night out, get down to Didsbury for 1UP. This drinking den is packed with D&D, Pokemon cards, board games, arcade machines and classic consoles for you to battle it out on, alongside having a UV room with beer pong.

Albert Hall

Located in a Grade II listed Wesleyan Chapel, this landmark venue, popular for its live acts and cub nights, is perhaps mostly known for its monthly Bongo's Bingo nights. Bizarre as it sounds, the bingo-rave mashup is iconic within Manchester, with impromptu raves, dance offs and silly prizes guaranteed.
