Came here with fiance to have a romantic boogy. Our night went quickly down hill after being left at the bar for 25 minutes due to the barman constantly serving out of turn. Got a Gordon's and tonic. Came with soda water, no ice and...More

This place is the best nightclub in Manchester. It's cheap and has fun music - though if you're there long enough, or go too often, it becomes repetitive. It plays Indie, Rock, and 80s and 90s pop.

Is 42's cheap on a Saturday night? If so how much is like double vodka and mixer?

Response from promotions42s | Property representative |
42's prices are always cheap! especially compared to other clubs on a Saturday night. A Vod/Mix is just £1.70.
