The usual place for me, my partner and pals. Drinks are reasonably priced, friendly staff and the music is absolute quality! Full of friendly people and incredibly decorated too, with new things to come!

Hi Melissa, It wasn't brought to my attention that you'd requested a refund after our initial conversation so I apologise that you weren't refunded as promised. We did have an issue on the night and the club did smell pretty bad, as I explained to...More

Venue is one of the best clubs in Manchester for a good night out. Vibes that remind me of This is England, and a club that makes me proud to be a Mancunian as it plays loads of the Manchester scene bangers like James, Oasis...More

When we walked in there were only 4-5 quite young people. We only used the toilets and left. We went in around 11:30pm maybe it was still too early.

Good music. Came from leeds for the week and the only club Id revisit. Drinks were really cheap and bought several shots for the barmen as service was friendly and quick. Music was a great mix and the floor was spacious. Had a very good...More

I've been here a few times, great music, literally danced all night, and cheap drinks from what I remember. Cool underground club.

Was looking for Indie, dancing and a place I didn't look out of place in. Was fantastic until 1 when it became a complete sausage factory.

I'm nearly 30 (and certainly couldn't be mistaken for younger) and got ID'd despite the fact the bouncers were clearly letting girls of 16 in. £6 entry, overpriced drinks, watered down beer. Full of absolute morons. Cant think of one redeeming feature for this place.
