My son and his flat mates visited here. They are always made to queue which is fine. The bouncers enjoy singling our young adults and intimidating them. They try and provoke them. They will pick on someone out of a group and send them to...More

On a Saturday night good luck getting in if you are male, even if you have females in your group. This is also while on their guestlist, still turned away. Joke of a place, living off their name, and from the nineties.

My 18 yr old son was thrown out of The Factory for drinking a bottle of water. This separated him from his mates, while outside alone a gang of lads began to pick on him, thankfully his Uber arrived just before they kicked off. This...More

Terrible place. Bouncers turned me away for being too old(I'm a youthful looking 36yr old). And he had the cheek to suggest I'd be more suited to a bingo hall than their establishment. Do bouncers feel the need to hurt peoples feelings?

This is without a doubt the single worst club in Manchester. Entrance prices are completely random, I was charged £6, my two friends £4.50 each, another friend £3, and another one £8! This was after a few eye rolls from the rude money collectors. Drinks...More

Great atmosphere in there and three floors to choose from depending on your music taste. Always a good night out when you go.
