Love Love Love! Excellent place to chill out with the locals early doors and then great vibes all eve. Really good value drinks and a warm welcome! Next time I visit hopefully I'll find the man of my dreams- it's been a while but I last visited about a month ago and had a great time here before bar pop, the molly house and G.A.Y I always pop back to centre stage in-between bars. Lovely friendly staff too! Id just been to my first shoot before my visit and cant wait to bring the stilletos for my next one!

The smallest but best place in the village. Its proper old skool, the bar staff are mint, proper friendly and the atmosphere is amazing. I often start my night and end it here.... Realising I've forgot to go to other places, I blame the shots! 😂 😂

I visited on Thursday after doing a little shop in CEX, i met with some close friends. After we decided to meet up after work for a few drinks in Manchester.We came in centre stage, such an amazing vibe when you go in full atmosphere and the staff are always welcoming and friendly.We had a few drinks, met some amazing people and did a bit of karaoke.Whilst I wasn't a good singer but looking like Ed sheeran, definitely have to get my vocals on point. Especially when singing Dancing Queen.Credit to the staff and team at Centre Stage!Kind Regards,Aaron

Love this place, great drag acts and atmosphere. Only issue I had recently was last weekend when I fell down the stairs and the doorman laughed and kept laughing. I'd actually hurt myself so it was disappointing.

Nice place to bring friends to and even come alone. I have visited this place in early hours so it was quiet but staff was very friendly. You can enjoy variety of music have a beer or mix. But of all that what caught my attention is the lady working as a security.sorry I am smoker. She has a really good aura. Very nice with people and it looks like she is the first person to see when you come to this local. Well done. I hope the owner appreciate what kind of diamond she is.Anyway. Very good place to be in Manchester. Xxx

Rude bouncers. Normally a great bar with amazing staff. However tonight I saw the bouncers be extremely rude and not let a small sized ginger man in for no reason.

Love Centre Stage! It’s a real community pub & the staff make everyone feel so welcome, nothing is ever too much trouble. You walk in a stranger & leave a friend. Top class old school drag & entertains! Plus it’s Dog Friendly inside and outside till 10pm (some days they have entertainment early evening but they accommodate by sitting you on the quite side with you pooches) which is amazing! World class service.
