“Buzzing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

What an atmosphere here, summer and winter. Sit outside and watch the world go by or choose one of the many bars to eat and drink whatever time of day.

Absolutely wonderful evening down Canal St. Was amazed by it all. Lovely friendly community. Plenty of bars. Plenty of places to eat. Outside and indoor seating. Great place to 'people watch'. Loved it!

“Great for straights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Manchester can be a bit hit and miss, quality and safety-wise. The gay village sets itself apart as a safe, fun and hugely entertaining destination for a night out. Great bars with a great range of food and drinks, especially on a nice sunny afternoon.
