Bar Fringe

Bar FringeBar Fringe 8 Swan Street, Manchester, M4 5JN map

  • Not many people know about Bar fringe. It is a well kept secret at the top end of manchester’s northern quarter, maybe a little too far out for some to walk to during their nightly pub crawls. Like it’s sister bar, cask, the exterior tells you nothing of what you will find inside; a great range of fabulous imported beers and some real cask ale to boot. The music is provided by a very well stocked jukebox and there is both a pool table and a pinball machine. The regulars are a friendly bunch and the atmosphere is very, very relaxed. In the height of summer, why not head to the beer garden out the back and truly hide away from the crowds elsewhere in town.

Fab Cafe

Fab CafeFab Cafe 111 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 4RJ map

This has to be one of the quirkiest bars in Manchester, Fab Cafe is themed around science fiction and cult tv. As you enter the bar and your eyes adjust to the darkness you’ll notice a whole host of tv and film props hanging from the ceiling, monster suits, and an alien from Aliens and loads more weird and wonderful stuff. Drinks are quite inexpensive and the atmosphere is usually jumping with clubbers that are just there for the music and a dance rather than out to impress anyone. The dress code is really laid back and one of the least pretentious places in town.

5th Avenue5th Avenue 121 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 7AG map

  • ‘5th Ave’ is probably the most famous indie club in Manchester and one of the most popular venues with students. So much so you should double-check with the bouncer’s it’s not a student-only night before joining the massive queues which tend to snake up Princess Street towards the Gay Village.  They play a great range of indie music and classic rock with the odd sprinkling of dance and hip hop.  Drinks here are also some of the cheapest around, with loads of amazing offers obviously aimed at those on a student loan.  There is a charge on the door, but don’t forget to look out for a flyer for those discounts.
  • Disco (indie and rock)
  • Live music (Tuesdays)
  • Opening Hours: Mon-Thu 10pm-2am / Fri & Sat 10pm-3am
