The bouncers seem obsessed with people having student id's even on a Saturday night which I find bizarre, my mate almost didn't get let in because he didn't have his, think that has to change to be honest. The staff inside are nice and friendly,...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.

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.

Went to 'definitely oasis' tribute act on saturday. Good venue, good band and a decent little place. Far too loud though, 4 of the 5 of us who went still have ringing in our ears 24 hours later!!
