A primary place to head to if you're an indie lover in Manchester. You can truly appreciate the city's musical legacy, swaying to the sounds of Oasis, The Stone Roses and The Smiths. 42's, otherwise known as 42nd street, is also one of the most popular clubs for students of Manchester, dominated by those aged between 18 and 25. It therefore integrates newer artists to its playlist while playing memorable tracks of the last three decades.
As a dominant student hangout, prices are fairly cheap. Its bar serves up shots, mixers and a whole range of drinks at very affordable prices. There's also plenty of club nights tailored to students, where most people can't handle a heavy night midweek. But no matter what night, 42's is usually busy and worth getting to early.
The club has been a longstanding part of Manchester's nightlife. It was formerly Slack Alice's club, owned by none other than George Best. Today, it retains a friendly and relaxed vibe, blasting indie anthems to guarantee a good time for all.
