7.0 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"In terms of nightlife, Manchester is incredibly varied. There are smaller weekly club nights such as Gold Teeth, which is great fun. The music scene has lots to offer for fans of all types of genres. Also, there's the yearly Warehouse Project series, which is a huge night out. There's a huge selection of bars and restaurants located in the city centre that are great to explore. The shopping is also great with the Armitage Centre and Trafford providing high-street retailers. Alongside this there's a great alternative/vintage fashion scene with the likes of Afflecks and smaller vintage shops/wholesalers. There are also plenty of museums, exhibitions and art galleries such as the Whitworth."
