We didn't find a table to book because we where a big group and asked at the end. Were our fault to come without a table, is impossible. The place is little and standing all the time is crazy. The show in my opinion was so and so. Nice the burlesque dance but the show man talks too much and... More

Fabulous night at this venue. Music and live band amazing. Great special offers on if you time it right. Free pizza if buying two drinks during happy hour. Terrific atmosphere. Recommend. All age groups attend so no-one stands out like a sore thumb. Terrific. Thanks for a great night to all the crew and staff.

We visited the Matt and Phreds to see the Swing Commanders on 30th December. The table booking was easy with a quick phone call back in October from our home in New Zealand. The early bird catches the worm and we lucky enough to secure a table by the stage for a great view of the band. The service was... More

For me this is the best live music bar in Manchester. Music is jazz themed but varies from soul through jazz-rock to blues. Every act I've seen here is good (although the occasional hard core jazz band is not really for me). Good bar snacks (pizza, nachos etc). Tables and chairs to sit at and say "cool" and "deep" at...

One of the great bars of Manchester. Many great musicians have passed through this place over the years. An absolute must when visiting Manchester. Drinks are average but the staff are great! Super chilled atmosphere

Usually visit this venue later in the evening, today Jeremy Sassoon was playing from 5.00pm until 6.00pm so we decided to visit. Very glad we did, the ambience was superb and the food & drinks were great. Very good value for money. We heard this is going to be a monthly event, we will definitely be there next time. Joanne

I found this from a TripAdvisor search as I was staying nearby. I wasn't disappointed with happy hour drinks and pizza. The music was great - not jazz but a lively salsa band. I've already recommended this to colleagues who are on the same course as me and will definitely come again.

Yes, the music is the main reason I'm coming to this place. This used to be a regular, Monday night out with my friends, just to break the Monday curse. It never let us down. Favourite place with some great memories.

I went here as I read an article where it was in the top 21 things to do in Manchester before you die. Was pleased to find out about the happy hour offer too - great value for money. Even more pleased when I rang about gluten free options and was told the chef made his own Gluten Free pizza... More
