Widely known across UK and the rest of the world for birthing some of the greatest rock bands the world has ever known. Manchester is the home of Joy Division, The Smiths, and Oasis. The city's club and live music scene is incredibly vibrant even now, which has young people going out to clubs and bars almost every night. You're going to love your time in Manchester, and with our help, you'll have a better sense of where the best hookup spots are.
Like the majority of the United Kingdom, Manchester's hookup scene owes a huge debt to its music scene. Without the strength and political nature of its music scene, most of Manchester wouldn't have nearly as easy a time getting laid as they do. In the 1830s, Manchester had a huge influx of immigrants, there to find jobs and change their lives. Manchester was an industrial city, but those immigrant factory workers began to create an arts scene during their off hours. Flash forward to the early 1980s, when the Hacienda Club was opened (co-owned by New Order and their record label), and changed the way people thought about night clubs. Whereas most clubs were fancy, had finished walls, etc., the Hacienda threw all of that out the window. It was a warehouse converted into a night club, and it didn't try to hide that fact for a second.
The club exploded, and its clientele began experimenting with drugs such as LSD while big time bands and DJ acts ere performing. These mind-altering experiences created what was known as the acid house scene. Despite the government's attempts to shut down rave parties, or any large LGBTQ gatherings, Manchester pushed back, and supported the scenes harder than ever before. The attempts to push people apart so that they would be easier for the government to control, only did the opposite, and brought the Manchester scene together, stronger than ever. The number of people going out for parties and gigs was off the charts, and of course, when large numbers of young people are out having fun, there's going to be an increase in hookups.
Decades later, the Manchester hookup scene is still benefiting from the rebellion of the music scene in the late 80s. So when you're out there getting it on, be sure to take a moment to appreciate both the city's immigrant communities, as well as Saints Bernard, Peter, and Stephen of New Order.
There are definitely some clubs and bars in Manchester that are open earlier in the day so that if the daytime is your only chance to get out there and try to hookup, they're definitely some hope for you. We have to tell you though that you will do much better if you're able to shuffle your schedule around so that you can get out there on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night to one of the city's hottest clubs. Even if you go out on a Tuesday night, your odds of hooking up will be better than during a bar's lunch rush. Every club has a different schedule though, and those slower times are where they'll try to get creative with their programming.
The best Manchester hookup bars can be tricky to find if you don't know where to look. But ezhookups.com has created a directory of the best hookup spots. So open up a Google map, and start adding some of these spots to it, so that you can bounce around Manchester's hookup spots like you're a local. Most of the spots are reachable via public transit, or short cab ride, so there's no need to rent a car or anything while you're in town.
Some of these bars are like mini-clubs, but still offer a more intimate hookup spot than a large dance club where you typically can't hear yourself over anything, and hookups are based on pure animal chemistry. Those types of hookups are fun, but for those of you who need to exchange a few words, and get to know your hookups for a little bit before heading back to yours or theirs, these hookup bars should suit your purposes very well.
If you want to turn the night up a notch, and let loose more than you can in Manchester's hookup bar scene, it's time to check out some of its famous hookup clubs, and get out on the dance floor to impress your fellow singles with your sick moves. If you're not very good at dancing, we would suggest sticking with the bars, because Manchester is incredibly confident for the most part, and they'll smell your fear.
Manchester doesn't have much going on for the swinging community, but the one spot that we were able to find has a lot of interesting elements and rules to it that makes it very different (or at least more easily accessible) than most that we've seen over the years. Perhaps the time is finally upon us when swingers will realize that they've made it very difficult to join them in their passion.
