A visit to Manchester would not be complete without exploring some of the city’s lively and extensive bars and clubs.

Pumping out tunes and pouring drinks in everything from an underground drinking den, lively clubs and laid-back bars to an old chapel converted into a mammoth party venue - Manchester is one city that's big on quirk and uniqueness!

With one of the strongest nightlife scenes in the country, you'll be completely spoilt for choice when it comes to Manchester's nightlife on your hen weekend.

if you're not one for moving about and want to keep the bar hoping distance to a minimum, Deansgate Locks will be the ideal drinking spot during your hen weekend. Perfect for those that want to stay in one area and don't want to walk far in their heels, you'll find DJ's playing all night and plenty of affordable cocktails in this canalside location.

You'll also find some of the trendiest venues, as well as a row of swanky chain bars housed in converted railway arches in Deansgate Locks.

When it comes to the Northern Quater you'll find plenty of watering holes around High Street and Thomas Street, while Tib Street and Oldham Street also host a number of relaxed bars and clubs. While the area is certainly buzzing with traditional pubs serving up plenty of craft beer, you'll also find a few trendy cocktail bars in the area if you feel like being a little fancy.

Oxford Road is another hot spot spewing with bars and clubs that follow suit with the Northern Quater's laid-back vibe!

With its exciting and always-evolving stream of bars and restaurants, Spinningfields is another good area to start out in before heading to Printworks, which is one of the more popular areas for Manchester nightlife.

Piccadilly is another great area filled with plenty of bars serving craft beer. Perfect for a casual drink before you continue to hit up Manchester's vast and vibrant nightlife.

With so much on offer, it can be hard to know where to go and where to avoid, that's why Maximise always recommends going on a guided bar crawl or taking advantage of our Bar & club Combos, during the first night of your hen weekend. 

Manchester is a fun-filled hub of activity all year round, regardless of what time of year you're planning on heading there for your hen weekend, you're bound to find unique events and plenty to keep you busy every week of the year.

If you are planning your hen weekend for the weekend of May 5, you are in luck! Margarita Rumble, a bottomless margarita festival will be in full swing and worth a visit.

From drag shows and comedy to burlesque and cabaret, Manchester has a number of great music venues and live shows well worth a visit during your hen weekend, a few that you can't go past are Albert's Schloss, Frog & Bucket, The Birdcage, The Comedy Store and KIKI.

If you're a beer loving, Manchester will win you over, the city produces some of the best craft beer in the world. So, if you're a true beer lover, a tasting session should definitely be on the agenda for your hen weekend

To sample the city’s finest brews, head to Port Street Beer House, the Piccadilly Tap and Beermoth. Conveniently all located within a few minutes walk of Piccadilly Gardens.

Manchester also boats a number of bars run by local brewers including Blackjack Brewery’s Smithfield Market Tavern, Seven Bro7hers’ bar in Ancoats, or the historic Marble Arch pub on Rochdale Road.

Nobody wants to deal with finding passports, changing pounds into funny money, or sitting about at the airport for a flight, so why not keep it on these shores for your Hen weekend.

If Manchester doesn't make the cut for your hen party check out Bristol, Brighton, Leeds, London, Newcastle, Chester, Southampton, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Bournemouth, Birmingham, York and Liverpool to name a few.
