Where To Go Out in Manchester

Manchester city centre loosely falls into 11 different areas, each with a name well known to locals and taxi drivers alike, making it easy to ask directions whilst taking the very short walk from one to another.
Each district offers a very different experience to Manchester's nightlife and it's possible to have a great night out in the city without even leaving one street.
On the other hand, because Manchester has a very small city centre, it is possible to be more adventurous and take in a few 'quarters' in one weekend.
In fact, Manchester city centre is so small, it's possible to walk around each of its furthest points (Castlefield, Piccadilly and the MEN Arena) in less than an hour and a half.
Below, we've listed the most popular areas for drinking in Manchester, together with the bars closest to the largest concert venues and sporting arenas.
