Good cheap booze, very good atmosphere, good music (and a very good DJ) that plays a nice cross section of music from the entire of the alternative/rock/metal scene with a mix of newer and older songs as well as requests.
The queues can be up to an hour long for the free bar on a Tuesdays and Saturdays can be a bit hit or miss. Can become very packed on Tuesdays but it's not the worst club I've been in for that.
Tuesdays are great fun, free bar until 11 and then £1 drinks all night after that. This is the busy night but has never failed to be a good night out. The music is very good and there is a great atmosphere. The monthly ska nights and punk nights are also worth a mention, not as busy but still a great night out, the DJs are different from the ones on the mainstream nights but are very into their music and it shows in a good way. The bands that play for these nights are always a mix of good quality local bands and occasional band touring nationally. They always get into the spirit of the night and have a great time.
Friday nights are very similar to the Tuesday nights except for the lack of free drinks on a Friday. All in all my favourite club and the best place to be in Manchester on a Tuesday or a Friday night
