Party ideas

Now at this point, you’re probably thinking that we’re full of it, but there really are a lot of unusual party venues in Manchester. You can find all sorts of spaces for hire, such as old industrial age mansions, a full-blown cathedral and an actual hangar with a Concorde parked inside. Sounds like a bit too much? You can always shake things up by booking something like one of the city’s many old warehouses. Many of them have been updated with high ceilings, lovely brickwork and decor pulled straight from old-school theatres.

So, which parts of Manchester offer the best choice of unique party venues in town? Going up and down Quay Street will put you in contact with a variety of unique party venues alongside their more mundane cousins. If you make it all the way to Water Street and the River Irwell, you’ll be well set up to take advantage of what Manchester has to offer. If you don’t mind going a bit further south, the area around Oxford Road will also reward the curious with a selection of reasonably priced quirky party venues.

Everyone knows the etiquette when you go out for a party at the bar or your favourite club, but what things should you keep in mind when booking something a bit more unusual?

  • Price and size – Some of Manchester’s most iconic unique party venues are more geared to host parties of hundreds, with a price tag to match. Smaller alternative party places are around, so be sure to choose something that fits the kind of bash you have in mind.
  • Amenities – When you book a place with a quirky gimmick, it always pays to double check that they can still fill some standard requests before you and your guests are left high and dry. Some of the more unusual places, for example, might not be licensed for serving alcohol. This is easily fixed by getting a temporary event notice filled out in advance.
