Bar
“Once upon a time, two musicians named Matt & Phred decided to open a Jazz Club. In 2010, some years after both musicians had left for pastures new, the Turner family took over the little back street Jazz Club and have been enjoying meeting musicians and guests from all over the world ever since. The club has now firmly established itself as one of Manchester city-centre’s most dearly loved live music venues, with an emphasis on creating an atmosphere people from different backgrounds and ages can all enjoy as one.”

“If you were putting together a dream pub in your booze-fuelled mind you’d be hard pushed to come up with a more perfect construction than the Marble Arch. Enjoy beautiful tiled walls and floors dating back to the heyday of pub architecture whilst you explore one of the city’s leading selections of ales, lagers and liquors, and food that goes far beyond regular pub grub.”

“Funny Girls is an adult only cabaret showbar on the North Shore of Blackpool, Lancashire, England. The cast comprise male dancers and drag performers. Tongue in cheek humour with lots of excellent choreography and music. A great night out for the adults only a few minutes walk away. The first opening routine is 8:30pm, the finale is 11pm. We would recommend standing tickets which are cheaper but you have a better view. Standing prices: Monday - Thursday £5. Friday £7.50. Saturday £9.50. Sunday £6. ”
