Manchester’s strong music history has led to a great Manchester nightlife along with some great student nights in Manchester.
There is a wide selection of music genres in Manchester’s nightclubs. Here is the ultimate guide to the best student (and student friendly) clubs in Manchester.
5th Avenue is a student favourite. There is a cheap and cheerful feel about the club and drinks are cheap. It is best to get to 5th Avenue early to avoid long queues. Wednesday night is a hot pick and you will usually find both floors of the club overspilling with students. The music takes a mainstream indie feel with dance tracks added in for extra spice.
