The party capital at the heart of Manchester's world famous Gay Village

Average Reviews


For over thirty years New York New York bar has been the beating heart of Manchester's Gay Village. Known for its hands-in-the-air nights with music that you can't help but sing along to, outrageous drag queens and, of course, a welcoming atmosphere - the venue has earned its nickname, The Party Palace.

Every week we welcome thousands of party goers through the door, providing a safe place for the LGBT+ community and their allies. The club has raised countless thousands for charity with special themed nights and charity events.

Owned and operated by Tracey Walsh, who was recently recognised in The Queen's New Year's Honours List with a British Empire Medal for services to charity, the venue prides itself on providing a place that allows you to be whoever you want to be.

Our main room is open from 8pm every night with a resident DJ every night.

Don't feel like dancing? Our coffee and cocktail bar is open from 1pm every day 'til close with comfortable seating and places to charge your phone or laptop.

I had the best time. What a Queen 👑 in charge of proceedings. Have only given a 4 because I was too drunk to appreciate if it was a 5 or not. Can't wait to return to post a new review

Staff and atmosphere brilliant.. BUT sadly and this is not me being old , the music and the vocals from stage was FAR TO LOUD ,I've worked in the pub club industry may years and when the music is to the point it makes you feel disorientated and physically hurts to listen to its beyond the point of pleasure. I've been a couple of times before and the volume was definitely NOT that high . The party I was with all agreed.. people smoking outside said the same ..

Not really an LGBTQ safe space they just let any old scum bag in. Very tacky venue. This is the venue of last resort when punters get turned away from all the other venues.

I always have a memorable time here. Last week while in the toilets a drunk guy came in and dived head first into my urinal. He could of offered me a drink first like...Thankfully his friend came in with no top on and apologised, I swiftly left while the first man carried on puking in the second urinal.When I got back to my seat the man next to me got up to leave and knocked his drink over my mates shoes, he muttered "sorry" and left with his friends.At this point the floor was pretty sticky and I was having flash backs from Freshers week at uni so we decided to leave.

We were walking past and heard good music, we then went in and stayed the rest of our evening there, fabulous club with a fantastic drag act hostess. Soo funny and entertaining. Will definitely be back on our next time in Manchester xx

Used to be a regular haunt of mine in my youth. Decided to go back for old time sake and it did not disappoint. Had a cracking night. Staff were helpful and friendly, good acts on and reasonably priced drinks. Oh and the biggest disco ball I've seen what more could you want.

Fabulous place where everyone could be completely themselves!! Well worth securing yourself a booth by prepaying bar tab. The drag artiste was terrific, Kylie, Cher etc. The dancers blew my mind. What energy and stage presence. I will say that at 2am the unisex toilets were not for the faint hearted!

Constantly told by management not to dance??? Why bother having a dj if you need to sit down. Very strange set up and extremely rude staff! Far better bars around than this one!

Liked the quiet bar for a bit of a breather. Jukebox good touch but would of liked the volume a little higher as everytime the door opened it drowned out the music

The not so very cheap drag show is basically a bingo. Not worth the money, specially if you are seated in the "VIP area", downstairs, you cannot see a thing.

Great bar but can get a little fighty/aggro when it gets a bit too straight in the early hours.

Great bar but be aware young woman putting poppers right up to your nose when they see you had a few to many drinks . So they can take your bag . Reported to door man didn’t seem to care . I felt very unsafe as a woman I would expect this from lord of places in Manchester put not your bar . Found this shocking and upsetting

Up market gay bar with adjoining but separate dance bar. Enjoy a drink and hear the conversation in the bar, or through the doors to busy, friendly dance club. Good range of drinks, draught, friendly staff and this makes for friendly crowd too! Been 3 times, never disappointed

We visited this club/bar as our first visit to the Gay Village. Staff weren't the most friendly, apart from the wonderful DJ who was playing classic tunes and incredibly smiley. Drink options were affordable, however non-alcoholic options limited and expensive.We did arrive at the scene quite early in the night and so the club itself was relatively quiet. We went on a Friday night around 10pm, and stayed for one drink in the end. I think we may have caught the club on a quiet night and with little going on!

Good atmosphere, busier on a weekend with cheesy dance anthems to bop along to. A good place a stop off on your way around the bars.
