While Manchester's bohemian quarter is fast being discovered by the hordes, there are still plenty of cool, independent bars which haven't yet been tinged by the dreaded 'mainstream'. The main concentration of bars in the N4 are focused around the High Street/Thomas Street crossroads, but wander over to Tib Street and Oldham Street where you'll be rewarded with some great bars and clubs and a slightly more laid back vibe. Our favourites include 2022nq, Common, Cord, Centro and the excellent Matt and Phred's, where you can enjoy live jazz most nights of the week.
Beginning at MMU's All Saints campus and heading all the way down to central Library, the Oxford Road corridor is awash with great bars and venues, and tends to carry the same laid back spirit as the Northern Quarter but with a slightly more studenty vibe. The Deaf Institute, Kro2, Odder, Sound Control and Space are all generally safe bets for a great night and good crowd.
Opposite Deansgate Train Station you'll find 'The Locks' - a row of swanky bars housed in converted railway arches. You'll love it or hate it.
As a student, you probably won't have much need or desire to drink on Deansgate. But if you do fancy blowing your loan on overpriced drinks and footballer-spotting, head to WAGtastic bars such as The Living Room, Panacea (on John Dalton Street just off Deansgate) or Cloud 23, 23 floors up the landmark Hilton Tower.
The Gay Village
Canal Street offers a continental style, with drinking and partying taking place on the old cobbled street.
If you've made the decision to spend your formative years in Manchester, then we'll assume that part of this decision may have been down to Manchester's global reputation for live music. And while the Madchester days may be over (thankfully, some might say), the city continues to produce incredible local talent, as well as being a major stop off on the touring schedules of every band.
From the cavernous MEN Arena to the dark, intimate vibes of Night and Day cafe, Manchester is overflowing with live music venues - and it's not hard to find a gig to attend on any night of the week. The University Campus is host to the three Academy venues of varying sizes, as well as The Deaf Institute next to MMU's All Saints campus, which is one of Manchester's finest independent music venues with an excellent line-up of gigs. In town you'll find gigs at The Roadhouse, Sound Control, Night and Day, The Ruby Lounge and Dry Bar. Now Wave are also a leading promoter in cutting edge live music, and are well wroth checking out. And with more and more bars hosting gigs and live music nights there really is an overwhelming abundance of venues to find your live music fix. Getting AroundAirport
