Manchester is arguably the nation’s student city, with four universities sharing a student population approaching 100,000. Naturally there are several night spots that cater particularly well for the swathes of students that decamp to the north-west each year. Here, we run through the top five night clubs in Manchester, or ‘town’ as the locals sometimes call it:

5. 256

Replacing the much loved undergraduate haunt the Queen of Hearts, 256 is one of a new wave of establishments in the student area of Fallowfield, and is located opposite one of the city’s biggest campuses for student accommodation in Manchester. It is a large space with a big dancefloor, a stark contrast to the traditional pub atmosphere of the Queen of Hearts, accommodating an exciting DJ line up at the weekend and even through the week.

4. Mint Lounge

Situated in Manchester’s hip Northern Quarter district, Mint Lounge might represent the upper end of the student budget, but nevertheless entry is likely to cost you no more than £5. For those who wish to bypass the more cutting edge, electronic side of Manchester’s clubbing scene, Mint Lounge offers the chance of a singalong to some good old commercial numbers at themed nights such as ‘Top of the Pops’.

3. 42nd Street

42nd Street, or ’42s’ is a fun and cheap night out in the Deansgate area of the city, a strip packed with pubs, bars and clubs not far from the main student districts. A range of tempting drinks offers don’t do any harm to student budgeting, while for indie music lovers a steady diet of guitar music from the Arctic Monkeys to Oasis is bound to appeal.

2. 5th Avenue

5th Avenue, or ‘5th Av’ as it has been affectionately known for years, has built up a reputation as the original student night spot in Manchester. Dangerously cheap drinks offers and music from the classics to more modern hits are designed to get the crowd dancing. Be prepared to queue for a while, depending on what time you arrive.

1. The Warehouse Project

The Warehouse Project offers some of the best dance music line-ups in Europe, let alone the UK. Held in a huge disused brewery, the club plays host to A-list DJs from around the world, and has been responsible for keeping Manchester’s stock high in the world of electronic music. With its huge sound system and massive dance floor area, WHP is not for the faint of heart, but whether you’re a raver or not, you’ll want to experience it.
