Friday Nights in Manchester

Ahhhhh Friday nights. That heady feeling when you step out into the dusky light of freedom when work finishes. The pre-party rituals of applying make-up or aftershave, pulling on skin tight dresses or shirts, and heading into the night. There isn't anything to rival a Friday night on the town, and however your week has gone, whatever plans you have for the next couple of days, tonight is bound for the realms of late-night dancing, fabulous cocktails and a healthy dose of escapism. Choose your night from our definitive list and prepare to party.
