Not far from Canal Street you’ll find New York, New York and its sister bar, Balans of Bloom Street. Although it’s arguably Manchester’s most famous gay bar, popular with queens of all ages, it is also very straight friendly. Small and always busy, New York, New York offers live cabaret in the form of show girl drag act’s and a disco most days of the week.

    Love this bar, as camp as christmas and more. Great music, great staff. shame it gets so packed come the weekend. Nice seating in the lower end of the bar, Shame it smells like bleach down that end, maybe use less of it or a better smelling one.

    New York New York so bad they had to name it twice. Run down dive which might of been ok years ago but is in serious need of an overhaul. Offers absolutely nothing but unhelpful staff, shambolic management and an uninspiring atmosphere. Also there is serious issues with disabled access.

  12. Nichola Says:

    Absolutely love the place, its the perfect place! Me and my friends can boogie the night away with no worries of any trouble. Already planning a return for my b’day in November x

  13. Tracey and all her little helpers (especially Peggy) make it worthwhile going to NY-NY everytime i go to Manchester. sometimes this is only once a year but Tracey never forgets a face and always welcomes us with a hug and a kiss. There is def not many bars out there where you get this.
    I recommend this bar to anyone i know who is going to Manchester and I always will and I have never had a bad report about it yet!!
    Can’t wait until my next visit xx

    AMAZING!! had a girlie weekend & ended up in new york new york best night ever everyone so friendly bar staff very nice. had complete strangers pull us up to dance made to feel like old friends. would love to go back and have told everyone how welcomed we felt

  17. john stapples Says:

    this is not a good bar it has a big problem with its door staff who are very handed with there fists and the manager does not seem to care ,if you face does not fit then you can not come in,if you do have a problem with the door staff you must report it to the police

  18. Simon Says:

    @John Stapples- Can’t believe you thought the doorstaff were nasty. Always a really friendly place with a great atmosphere and think that is due to the doorstaff having a good insight on who is nice and who isn’t. Guess you weren’t nice. Anyway, great place, great drinks great atmosphere.

  19. Chris Blackpool Says:

    love it cant wait co see Tracey and the crew and especially our Kitty Litter.
    Always a great atmosphere.

  20. mark mccarrick Says:

    Not the best bar in the village but then not the worst either. Its about time Kitty Litter got some new material, same old stuff time after time!
    My only complaint is the fact that there’s still no working hand washing facilities in the gents & its been like that for weeks now!! Will it be fixed soon? I doubt it!
