The Klondyke ClubBritish
No round-up of Levenshulme’s social spaces could exclude The Klondyke AKA The Levenshulme Bowling and Social club. This century-old social club was originally a bowling alley and oddly the name comes from the news of the influx of gold-rush migrators from America to northern Canada’s Klondike region. In 2019 The Committee Room reopened as a speakeasy-style bar.
As is the norm in social clubs there are snooker and pool tables and darts boards to while away an afternoon but it isn’t stuck in the past. There is a community allotment on-site to encourage locals to get involved in growing fresh fruit and veg. The venue hosts regular live music events and art exhibitions and its function room can be booked for hatchings, matchings and despatchings with in-house catering. It’s the Klondyke club that people look to for seasonal firework displays and there are numerous things to get involved in like Irish dancing classes, supper clubs and Samba drumming groups. They also do a decent Sunday roast and can deliver it to your door.
