I go every week, it's a great place with great music, price is also very good! If you're a fan of bands like Bastille, catfish, vaccines, courteeners, blossoms etc then you'll love it here!

Came here with fiance to have a romantic boogy. Our night went quickly down hill after being left at the bar for 25 minutes due to the barman constantly serving out of turn. Got a Gordon's and tonic. Came with soda water, no ice and no slice. Needless to say my our night was over before it even started. We... More

Don't understand the bad reviews about this place? I have been going here weekly since I was 18 and it only gets better! The admission is super cheap (free on the Facebook guest list!!) the staff are friendly and helpful, the drinks are cheap even on a Friday/Saturday! And the door staff are lovely and helpful. I even lost my... More

Visited here after recommendation, our kind of place back home in regards to music! Drinks were cheap and the sloe vodka was amazing. Full of young people messing around, dancing like idiots and generally just getting too drunk. Spoilt it a bit for us so we left. Whilst waiting outside it was clear the bouncers were letting people in that... More

My friends and I visit 42's regularly however last night (thurs 26th Feb), I was assaulted by a male and when I told security, who are meant to be there to protect us? I was told to shut up and sworn at. They quite frankly couldn't care less about the situation. I tweeted them also about the nights problem and... More

If you don't wish to be interrogated by the doormen and your shoes to stick to the carpet, then stay away. Dishonest people strike in this place and the staff don't seem to care, when theft takes place. Make your own mind up, but my daughter will not be returning, one very costly night!!!

This place is the best nightclub in Manchester. It's cheap and has fun music - though if you're there long enough, or go too often, it becomes repetitive. It plays Indie, Rock, and 80s and 90s pop.

Ashame to see the bad reviews about the place but suppose these things happen. I certainly can't complain or say anything about the bouncers. £6 to get in is pretty average to me. Drinks are cheap! Recently went at the weekend after courteeners gig and place was bouncing!! Great atmosphere. Usually is any time I've been. Everyone just wants to... More
