Venue Guide: Night People

Here's what you need to know about the freshest music venue in Manchester.

‘Night People, funky but neat’ said John Cooper Clarke, who has nothing to do with the venue whatsoever but we like him and that poem.

The Night People has just opened and is looking to establish itself amongst the great Manchester live music venues that already exist. 


107 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 6DD


Brief History

It’s been a fetish bar, student dive, metal venue and poptastic palace in the past. Under a new team since October 2017, Night People is now mostly a Rock and Soul, Jazz, World and Blues venue and late night (very late if needs be) basement club. 

Also home to the legendary Twisted Wheel Club, which since 1963 has been Manchester’s longest running clubnight and the key club which launched the movement ‘Northern Soul’ in this region of the UK. 

How many people does it hold?

220 at gigs and 400 for club nights.

How do I get there?

Night People is well located on just about every bus route headed south, St Peters Metrolink 2 minutes walk, and 5 minutes from both Oxford Road and Piccadilly mainline stations.

Where should I eat?

Almost Famous does mouthwatering, jaw-dislocating burgers. Get involved.

Where can I stay?

There’s a wealth of hotels and BnB’s in the city in close proximity to the venue. Air BnB is also a solid option.

Ticketweb Tip:

The beauty of this venue is it can house your entire evening’s entertainment under one roof. Go to a gig upstairs and then keep the party going in the brilliant club downstairs. Sorted. 

Where can you carry on the party?

The Twisted Wheel Club!

Look no further than the basement of Night People for a fantastic late night club experience.
