Jabez CleggJabez Clegg 2 Portsmouth Street, Manchester, M13 9GB map

In the heart of the Manchester University Campus you’ll find the pub/club Jabez Clegg, a popular student hangout.  Like it’s one-time city centre sister bar, Joshua Brooks, it’s named after the loveable character in GL Bank’s superb ‘Manchester Man’ novel.  It’s a great place for a daytime drink, to enjoy some food or play a game of pool or table football.  They also boast a big screen tv for match days with premiership plus and sky sports playing the games. Being so close to the University means that night times are busy with students meeting up and having a few drinks – Thursday nights are popular when live bands play and Friday is the indie and dance anthem club night.  On Saturday’s Jabez Clegg becomes host to Manchester’s famous ‘The Bop’ – two dancefloors and non-stop partying with girls drinking free from 9.30pm till 1o.30pm!

Joshua Brooks

Johsua BrooksJoshua Brooks 106 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6NG map

Joshua Brooks was named after the loveable character in Mrs G. Linnaeus Bank’s classic novel, The Manchester Man.  It was a popular bar for over 7 years, especially with students at the nearby UMIST and clubbers at Paradise Factory which once stood opposite until it was taken over by the owners of the brilliant Fallowfield bar, Sofa.  They called it Sofa Central and spent a fair bit of dosh in doing it up.  Sadly they didn’t enjoy long term success and soon sold up.  Fortunately, the bar was reopened with its original name, keeping many of Sofa’s famous comfortable booth seats.  A short walk from both Oxford Road and the Gay Village, this dimmly lit bar is great for lounging around. They have a number of club nights in their basement bar (Indie, Rock, Pop, Ska, Raggae or Drum ‘n’ Bass) and a good schedule of live music (including weekly acoustic nights). The bar also has two big screen tv’s with sky and premiership plus, as well as cricket, tennis, golf and whatever else is playing.  With bar food at reasonable prices as well as cheap shooters and cocktails, it’s a popular haunt for students.
