Valentines Day at Manchester Clubs

Posted by: Mark O'Donnell  21/01/2009 @ 10:48
Subject: Clubs

Seeing as Valentines Day at Manchester clubs falls on a Saturday this year, you don’t have to worry about potential hangovers and having to drag yourself into work the next day. Result.

I’ve never been a fan of those events that brand their flyers with all the hearts and stuff, to me that’s pure cheddar and just seems like the promoter is sitting there thinking it’s Valentines - ker-ching! Instead, most, especially the credible, Manchester clubs will be avoiding the temptation to brand their events and good on them for doing so.

Unless you’re absolutely desperate to get out there and score with the man/women of your dreams this Valentines Day at Manchester clubs (if that’s …

Christmas Events In Manchester

When I think of Christmas events in Manchester, I automatically think of the German markets in Albert Square. Mutant sized sausages, hot mulled wine, rosy cheeks and a friendly atmosphere is just the ticket as the festive season closes in. Even the biggest Scrooges in town are known to loosen up after sinking a few spicy mulled wines. If that fails, one thing that’s guaranteed to cheer up even the most miserly is the inflatable Zippy from Rainbow dressed as Santa that’s perched on the Town Hall.    

This year, Christmas events in Manchester have suddenly got a bit more interesting. Not only do we have the sausage fest on Albert Square, but The North Pole bar has popped up next to the city’s giant glass ski slope (that’s …

This year, if you’re thinking of spending Valentines Day at Manchester bars, you’ll fall into one of two categories: either you’ll be going out with your loved one or you’ll be looking to go out on the pull. If you fall into the former, you may even be preparing to pop the big question. No, I don’t mean what you’re having for dinner; I mean the other BIG question: the will you…one.

What kind of couple you are will very much determine which venue you decide to spend Valentines Day at Manchester bars. Those in search of a quiet, romantic evening without the mither of having to go the bar and order drinks will want to check out one of the city’s stush bars, where table service comes as standard.

With Valentines Day at Manchester restaurants falling on a Saturday this year, you better make your mind up pronto as to where you’re going to take your loved one.
