Is Withington’s Pleasure Bar Re-opening?

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Update, 26th November 2009: Pleasure bar didn’t reopen, but a new sisha bar opened in its place. It looks really nice in there, but I haven’t been in yet. And of course, there are no open mics. But just down the road, there is still the Fuel open Mic every Wednesday. And there’s now a new open mic every Sunday, at Bar One, Withington. On with the original post….

I’ve 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 sound for the Mushaboom last night and didn’t hear anyone saying it’s reopened yet… it used to be a Withington institution…

But today, Mat has posted a comment on my guide to Manchester open mics suggesting that it’s reopened and there’s now an open mic on Mondays again. Could this be true? Or just the MEN getting their wires crossed? Who knows… If there’s anyone with any comments or info, please post below!
