You’ll find Handlebar in Fallowfield, one of the biggest student hotspots in Manchester. During the day, it’s a great hub space that you can head over to get some work done, or to do a bit of socialising, and it transforms into a DJ bar of an evening.

Offering loads of student-focussed events, including our fav ‘We Love To Boogie’ night on a Wednesday, you can enjoy some proper cheesy bops, and £1 shots – that’s what we call a good night.

Looking for a cheeky slice and a tasty marg? Look no further, Ramonas’ in the Northern Quarter has got you covered. Whether you’re looking for a lunch with some mates, or somewhere for an evening out, Ramonas’ can do it all.

With firepits to keep it warm and to really add to the atmosphere, it’s a great vibe in here – and if you visit on a Sunday, you can get their roast dinner pizza slice that’s served with a side of gravy. 10/10, no notes.

If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic, and wanting to relive some of the best bits of childhood, NQ64 is where you need to be. Filled with old-school arcade machines, you can grab some tokens from the bar and challenge your mates to any of the games around.

Whether you’re a Mortal Kombat fan, or fancy yourself as a Guitar Hero pro, there’s something for everyone to enjoy – they even have a bar with game-themed drinks. Treat yourself to a Royal Crumble, we promise you won’t regret it.

Band On The Wall

Less interested in the party side, more keen on seeing some incredible live music? We get it. Band On The Wall is a rite of passage when you’re living in Manchester, and is somewhere we recommend everyone visits at least once during their time in the city.

A multi-award-winning historic live music venue, Band On The Wall has been one of the cornerstones of Manchester’s music scene for almost a century, and shows no signs of slowing down. You can find some hidden gems here – so get on down and see who’s playing.

Manchester is a great city to explore as a student, with plenty to explore and discover. If you’re studying in the city, what’s your favourite spot? Head on over to our socials and let us know.
