Hen Party in Manchester: the UK's REAL Capital City...
"Manchester has got everything but a beach"
Ian Brown, Stone Roses
Manchester is the UK's second capital city. OK, perhaps that's not the official stance but that doesn't make it any less true. Nowhere outside of London can you find such diversity. It's got the music (Bee Gees, Oasis, Simply Red, Elkie Brooks, Mr Scruff, Chemical Brothers to name just a few), the people (cheeky, chirpy, friendly, smart) and, yes, the rain (though Manchester is surprisingly not even in the top ten of the UK's wettest cities). Welcome to the pride of the north.
There are bars, clubs, theatres, restaurants and all manner of diversions scattered right across the city but the four main nightlife areas are:
- The Village. Once known as 'the gay village', this area of Manchester is literally world famous. Though aimed primarily at gay and lesbian party people, the few small streets welcome everybody equally and it's become a staple of the Manchester hen party. Award-winning food and canalside walks during the day, super-wild friendly partying by night (and well into the next day!).
- The Triangle and Printworks. The area around Victoria Station was one of the worst to be affected by the IRA bombing of 1996. With typical Mancunian vigour and resilience, rebuilding happened fast and totally transformed the dingy square and surrounding streets into a party paradise. Trendy wine bars sit side by side with traditional pubs and there are so many eateries that you can spend several hungry hours deciding.
- The Northern Quarter. Pleasingly bohemian, this is another area of Manchester that has undergone dramatic change in recent years. What was once an undeniably grimy few backstreets is now a vital, pulsing and energetic mini-metropolis yet still manages to have a laid-back feel.
- Deansgate Locks. Designed for those who like to dance, drink and then dance some more, all while wearing the season's hottest looks, Deansgate Locks is a thriving yet cosily-small section of the city. Dress smart, act smarter and you'll have the proverbial whale of a time. The fast pace is suited to a young crowd and this is just what the area attracts.
