Going to 42's is guaranteeing a great night. Entrance is cheap, drinks are around the £2 mark and the music is a good mix of recent and throwback tracks, playing a range from Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Tame Impala etc. 42's was the first club I ever visited and it continues to be my favourite club in manchester- you can turn up wearing casual clothes or whatever your hearts desire and know that you will have a better time than the posh clubs around town.

Very student friendly and great atmosphere. Great music and the DJ always takes requests. Quick service at the bar and the staff always keep an eye on who has been waiting the longest to get served. Was basically my 2nd home during my first year at uni!

42s is the perfect night out if you enjoy indie/alternative music. Every night is full of amazing tunes, good quality but cheap drinks. Everyone is friendly there, the people who attend, the bar staff and even the security and door staff. Every night at 42s is fun and welcoming. I would recommend to any student in Manchester.

The best Indie venue in Manchester. Entry for students is never more than a few quid and is often only a pound before midnight. You won't find drinks cheaper anywhere else in town. Everyone is friendly, dress code is chill and the music is second to none. Every night has a decent event on but its especially packed on Tuesdays and Fridays

Such a good night out guaranteed to play constant bangers and the drinks are so well priced for a club

Great night out, especially if you're on a budget! Cheap drinks and cheap entry, playing loads of indie classics all night! Make sure to get a picture in the famous light tunnel entrance

Nice music and nice vibe. If you like indie music it is your place. They do play really good tunes. Also the entry is cheap

Brilliant music for indie lovers. The kind of dive that you like for a messy night. Cheap drinks too.

The 42's venue is relatively big, but is normally filled on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday night. 42's normally sticks to the indie genre of music, but does tend to throw in some dance and disco tunes. The bouncers on the door tends to be friendly to us students, they have allowed me and my friends in multiple times using just one queue jump pass. The queue outside is the biggest turn off about 42's. Quite frequently we have waited in the queue but left due to the long wait. When this happens we have visited 'The Venue' which is round the corner and quite similar to 42's. However, 42's always has a lively atmosphere every time me and my friends have visited, I think due to the music.

42s is the perfect alternative night out. Great music, friendly staff. Cheap drinks on students nights. Never any trouble.

One of the best indie clubs in Manchester. Friendly staff, cheap drinks and good tunes. What more do you need?

It was okay, good music but always cramped as many people go to the bar, however the drinks are cheap and the vibe is good so would recommend to anyone.

42s is a great place to go out in town, especially if you are a student! The drinks offers on Tuesday are great if you love jaegerbombs, but Skint on Thursdays is another fantastic night out at 42s! Great indie music with a fun crowd and cheap drinks.

Abso fucking fantastic. Constant belter of tunes where you can sing your heart out to. Atmosphere is lit, as well as the people who go, guaranteed to have a good laugh whilst getting pissed at the same time, defo worth it

Dead cheap, bit grotty but sometimes that’s just what you need! Not somewhere we go first, but somehow we always end up there. Always the best nights though.

Literally the stickiest most studenty club in the whole city, it is super cheap on its student nights and couldn’t be more student friendly. Compared to deansgate locks the music is great, ending every night with Not Nineteen Forever by the Courteeners is a staple part of my first year memories and I wouldn’t change that for the world.

The last time I visited 42s was for my birthday with my friends, the management was super and really helpful, I would 100% recommend this club as the music was really good also!

The best night out in Manc with a great atmosphere if you’re into prominently indie music and the best attitude towards students. The dj’s are sick and they’re always playing good tunes and fridays are the best nights by far. Value for money is good considering some other places in manc are up to 6 quid to get into and aren’t as good as 42s.

Anything goes!! There's loads of good bars that you can go to for a nice drink and a good laugh. There's lots to do so you're never bored on a night out.

Top quality night with an amazing selection of old school bangers, and dirt cheap drinks prices. Who dosent want to listen to Oasis and the courteners at 3am?

42s is the place to go for all things indie. The small nightclub offers a friendly vibe, whilst also offering great value for money. Getting on the guest list means free entry before 11:30 on most weekdays, but entry is only a couple of quid before midnight anyway! Cheap booze, friendly security guards (if you behave!), indie tunes and good times. What more could you want?

Really good indie atmosphere and plays a good range of obscure and classic indie and alternative songs so you never get bored! Super cheap drinks, especially the shots!
