Manchester's top parties you need to go to this January


New Years is over, and most of us have just about recovered from the festivities that occurred that night and are ready for what the year ahead has to offer.

In Manchester, what the year has to offer is a whole new batch of parties.

In a city as busy and bustling as this one, you don’t have to wait for the next New Year’s Eve to start ordering the shots and pulling the pints.

If you’re feeling the urge to kick back, forget about your exams and focus on having a top quality time, here are some of the best parties coming up in early 2018.

1) Pop Bubble Rock Mean Girls House Party, 27th January, Joshua Brooks

If 2018 is bringing you new uni stress, then you might find yourself wishing that you could go back to high school. Thanks to Pop Bubble Rock, you can - to North Shore High School, to be exact.

What could be better than a night out that features a screening of one of the best films of all time, Mean Girls?

A night out with Mean Girls, free pizza, themed cocktails and pop-punk music - that’s what. Finally, this is your opportunity to show off that you know the script of the film back to front…

2) Bongo’s Bingo, Albert Hall, throughout January/February

If you thought that bingo was only for your granny, you thought wrong. With prizes ranging from bottles of gin, to double-ended dildos, to £1000 this is an event best avoided by the elderly and the easily offended.

The games of bingo are split up by designated drinking breaks and plenty of pop music, which give you the chance to shout along to something even if you don’t get to shout "BINGO!".

The best part? You could end up winning back the money you spent on vodka cokes!

3) Paramore disco, The Ruby Lounge, 19th January

Missed out on tickets for Paramore in Manchester but want an excuse to paint on the eyeliner and slip on your skinny jeans?

The Ruby Longue have your back.

Playing all the best emo tunes from My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday and, of course, Paramore, it’s the perfect chance to relive your teenage years and let out all that angst.

With £1 shots and £3 cocktails, you won’t have to blow your student loan to have a good time. And you will have plenty of money leftover for when All Time Low play the arena in March.

4) Better in the 90’s, Antwerp Mansion, 20th January

As the name might suggest, this is a night perfect for those suffering from nineties kid nostalgia. If you’re one of those who still knows all the moves to the Cha Cha Slide or wants to get down to R Kelly’s Bump n Grind, then this is one you won’t want to miss.

It might just be the last chance you’ll get to whip out your Tamagotchi or Pokemon cards and be the coolest kid on the dance-floor.

There you have it - the best Manchester parties to shake off the January blues and kick your year off right. Just remember to save some energy for February, because in this city, it’s bound to be just as good.
