About The Village, Manchester

The Gay Village or simply “The Village” of Manchester was one of the oldest gay communities in Europe. From the LGBT community’s standpoint, this place is historic in the sense that it was one of the first few areas to become a center point as a space for the community. While it was initially used as a place to hide by them, it was later turned into a place which was safe and celebrated the lifestyle instead of hiding it. It was also the place from where the movement for equality was headed, making it even more important.

What began with a couple of bars on Canal Street has turned into a very popular gay district in the city and has inspired many around the world. Even today, it is a very popular place to hang out in regardless of sexual orientation. The bright and colorful bars and restaurants that dot the area make it THE place to be for night owls. The party scene is tremendous and even during the day you will be able to see several parades and rallies going on here.

In short, if you love to drink, party, and have a good time, there is no better place to do it than this lovely historic district. The swanky and hip bars and clubs welcome one and all.
