If you like jazz book a table as it gets busy. Not a place for any specific age group, I took my niece and daughter - we were surrounded by similar age groups (21-54). Nice vibe, went early enough to take advantage of happy hour - we all agreed it was a most enjoyable night out.

Thank you for your comments. I am very aware of what happened to you in the club a few months ago. One of the bar staff was making a cocktail and the Boston shaker came loose. The bar tender was very apologetic as some of the cocktail did splash onto your top. I do understand how inconvenient you found this... More

The music,,atmosphere,drinks and ambience at this venue was exceptional. Unfortunatley we were stood next to 4. 'ladies' who liked to remind u s that they had booked the table. I was with my son,who had travelled to join me and to celebrate my 60th birthday, all I can say that the 4. 'Ladies' were unpleasant, insulting and a disgrace to... More

Hello, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your night at the club. Unfortunately we don't have any sway over who visits the club. Your comments were brought to my attention by the M&P Team on Saturday evening. We like to think everyone gets on at the club but occasionally people will not be to your liking. I hope it's not...

We visited this one Saturday evening and found good and bad things about the place. You pay 5 pounds admission which I found reasonable for the standard of musicians playing in the venue. They do stamp your hand so you can leave and come back in later which is what I done as it was very loud and crowded. I... More

Hello, Thank you for your review of the club. We do get very busy at the weekends as it's a tiny club and people want to call in and enjoy their weekend. If you are looking for a quieter night, I always recommend calling in on a Wednesday evening. It's much more relaxed with people sat listening to the band.... More

Very talented musicians play in this club..A small cosy place ( like the Cavern in Liverpool) with a fantastic atmosphere. More like a bar, has a stage, musicians are sometimes booked. Food is available, pizza etc. We booked a table in advance only £5.00pp because A welsh band were playing "LLAREGGUB BAND". What talent they possess. The club was full.... More

We didn't find a table to book because we where a big group and asked at the end. Were our fault to come without a table, is impossible. The place is little and standing all the time is crazy. The show in my opinion was so and so. Nice the burlesque dance but the show man talks too much and... More

Hello, Thank you for your comments on the Cherie Bebe Burlesque Revue. It's a very popular night so tables do book up quickly. It's first come, first served on tables so we always recommend calling to book your table as soon as you have bought your tickets through Cherie Bebe's online ticket link.

Fabulous night at this venue. Music and live band amazing. Great special offers on if you time it right. Free pizza if buying two drinks during happy hour. Terrific atmosphere. Recommend. All age groups attend so no-one stands out like a sore thumb. Terrific. Thanks for a great night to all the crew and staff.

For me this is the best live music bar in Manchester. Music is jazz themed but varies from soul through jazz-rock to blues. Every act I've seen here is good (although the occasional hard core jazz band is not really for me). Good bar snacks (pizza, nachos etc). Tables and chairs to sit at and say "cool" and "deep" at...
