Sorry – Pleasure Bar in Withington has closed its doors… So no more open mic on Mondays :-(….

There’s more open mics in manchester elsewhere on the blog!

Every Monday, Pleasure hosts an open mic. There’s a huge mix of musicians. People usually play 2 or 3 songs. Get down there early, because it fills up very quickly… Probably best to arrive before 8.30pm

Towards 11pm, it turns into a bit of a jam, with some great musicians usually taking part.

    Pleasure Bar was an excellent surprise with musicians supporting musicians and a great jam at the end of the evening

    went there to check it out . bar staff like zombies, even though i tipped them. one guy setting up a P.A.
    absolutely no vibe about the place whatsoever.

    Hehehe, that’s a bit harsh! I don’t go to Pleasure all that often, but I’ve always liked it when I do. Sitting outside in summer is particularly nice…

  • Just been checking out ya online resource for open mic nights in town, seems pretty good .

    However, gotta let ya’ll know that we went to the bar Pleasure thing and it is most deffo closed and up for sale.

    I might add that the bar phone seems permently engaged, we also talked to the owner of the bookies next door and apparently it’s been closed for ages and only opened for a bit for private functions etc.

    Please update your listings so other people don’t end up goin’ down.

    Peace out Johnny. – Oh No ! Crazy Rebels Against Corporate Killers. –

    Thanks for that, Johnny. We’ve updated the open mic guide now though, so that hopefully it’s up-to-date… so worth having a look at that for other Manchester open mics. If you do find anything different or any new ones, do let us know! Always worth checking with the venue first though – just in case – for all the open mics on the guide. Most of them are pretty reliable but you never know!

    See you soon


  • […] been hearing various rumours around Manchester, that Pleasure Bar in Withington is to reopen. Or maybe even has reopened. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I was at Fuel doing […]

    it’s been bought and is opening as a shisha/cafe/restaurant

  • That’s good to hear. It’s great that Withington is getting more bars / restaurants. I’m guessing the original poster who tipped us off about the Monday open mic restarting has his wires crossed though!
