Why Kaplan English students love the Manchester nightlife

If when you think of Manchester, all you think of is Manchester United, think again. The UK city, known to the English as ‘Madchester’ for its party atmosphere, is one of the world’s best kept nightlife secrets.

Manchester’s clubbing scene is undoubtedly one of the best in the UK. The leftover industrial buildings of the city’s manufacturing past have been converted in clever new ways to create some of the most cutting-edge nightclubs Britain. Head to the transformed soap factory, Sankeys, to marvel at the lightshows of the high-tech ceiling, or step down below Piccadilly Train station to see top name DJs in The Warehouse Project’s 2000 person capacity venue; a massive former air raid shelter.

Prefer to keep things on a smaller scale with just a few close friends from Kaplan International Colleges’ Manchester English Language School?  Then try Manchester’s Northern Quarter. This area is renowned for being the home of anything a little bit different in Manchester and has hundreds of unique bars, traditional pubs and friendly venues for live music and comedy.

Manchester’s music scene, in particular, is something to look out for. As the birthplace of the world-famous Oasis, as well as many other well-known bands from the ‘indie’ scene, its venues host both popular bands and the latest new local talent. If that doesn’t grab your attention, you might want to check out Manchester’s large variety of Theatre shows or cinemas.

All partied out? We’re not surprised! Top up your energy by grabbing something to eat at one of Manchester’s huge variety of eateries. From the inexpensive Indian takeaways of the ‘curry mile’ to Michelin starred restaurants, Manchester has somewhere to go for every single type of international cuisine and every budget, at any time of the day or night. For a true taste of England while you study with Kaplan in the UK, try Bread and Butter tea-room’s great value homemade cakes.

So now you know that Manchester is so much more than just a football team…hurry here to enjoy the action for yourself before everyone finds out!
