The main thing with the gay village is that everyone is welcome just as long as you are in a good mood and are open minded. You will see all kinds of people here and the atmosphere is great. You don´t have to be gay either..there are lots of hen parties and straight couples in the pubs on Canal Street and everyone just has a good laugh. As my wife said..the atmosphere here is so much more relaxed than in the majority of city centre bars.

A lot quieter than it used to be with less of a gay scene and more of a tourist attraction - lots of hen parties etc.

One of the best night's out in Manchester, the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic as most people there are open-minded (i've NEVER witnessed a fight in the gay village) the drinks and admission to places are cheap, and there is a club/pub/bar for everyone. Some places are open untill 7am! A great place to go for a dance at night, and a casual drink by day. So GO!
