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.

This is a wonderful jazz club and bar. There is a wide variety of jazz here. Very good quality also I've never been disappointed. Great pizza is served and the drink choice is wide.

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

Myself and 3 of my sisters travelled from London and visited on a Friday night in June 2016, and we loved it. The music and atmosphere was great. The cocktails were brilliant, we didn't get to try the famous pizzas as we had already eaten. I called and reserved a table in advance and I later made changes, and each... More

2 4 1 cocktails and free pizza with live music. You can't really argue! In the heart of the northern quarter and just been the once so far I loved the live music. Chilled atmosphere but could maybe do a slight spruce up of tables/chairs however it does add to the feel of the place.

Thank you for your review Rebecca. It's a busy club so the furniture does take a bit of a beating. The furniture is due to be refurbished very soon so hopefully it will be better on your next visit. Glad to hear you enjoyed the live music. Best wishes, Claire Turner GM More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry the floor staff forgot your drinks. I have spoken to the team about making sure all customers are served efficiently. But it's good to hear you had a good night. I hope the UFC was good too! Best wishes, Claire Turner GM More

Was recommended this place by a friend as we were having a well deserved night off from the kids. Absolutely loved it!
