Fab Cafe Bar
Is it really a drunken night out in Manchester if you don’t (at least consider) heading to Fab Cafe? Or Fab Cafe Bar to use it’s never normally used full name.
This late-opening bar on Portland Street is known for its heady mix of retro TV memorabilia, gaudily-coloured cocktails, and soundtrack of the finest indie bangers heard this side of the The Ritz, circa 1995.
Weekends, after about 11pm, are when it really comes to life as a place to dance, drink and molest the replica Dalek by the DJ pit (actually, don’t do this – you’ll get chucked out).
Or head there in the week for a less raucous crowd. There’s Dungeons and Dragons gaming evenings, WWE Wrestling screenings, and themed ‘Nerd Nights’ focusing on particular films or cult TV programmes. If you self-identify as ‘geek’, you’ll love it in here.
