A Guide To Your Manchester Hen Weekend

Star Bars

The Liquor Store - Some people go to Manchester and don't have a night out at the Liquor Store. Those people are wrong uns! We love this funky bar that has a rock n roll heart which is reflected in the food, drinks and great buzz you'll find every weekend.
40 Blackfriars St, M3 2EG
The Alchemist - If you want a night out with wow factor then you simply must head to this gorgeous cocktail bar where both the food and drink are works of art but with none of the pretentions you'll find in bars that just wish they were half this cool.
3 Hardman Street, M3 3HF

Best Bites

This & That Café - Fantastic, no-frills dining. The wonderful team at This & That, are all about flavour, a great relaxed place to grab a bite and the home of 'on plate, three curries'. In our opinion, this is Manchester No1 curry house.
3, Soap St, M4 1EW
Solita - If you're going to have a big night then it's probably best you get some big food. Solita Bar & Grill is perfect, not only does it serve some of the best burgers on the planet, but the menu offers everything from grilled haloumi, sea bass to delicious salads. Oh, and puddings to die for!
Turner Street, M4 1DW

Sights & Sounds

Manchester is one of the most fashion-conscious cities in the UK which makes it an absolute shopping mecca. Affleck's Palace is a weird and wonderful collection of independent retailers and has some real hidden gems. If you're foodies then it's worth a trip to Chinatown where you can get a fantastic buffet lunch at a really good price.

Suede, no not the stuff on your geography teacher's elbows, this is one of Manchester's hottest clubs and a superb night out. The venue is stunning and sees more than its fair share of famous faces with everyone from Premier League footballers to Corrie stars hitting the dance floor. Talk to our team about guest list entry.
Longworth St, M3 4BQ

In the Diary

June - Parklife - Big acts and local bands take to the stage to ring in the summer with mega headline sets.
July - Festwich. This is not the greatest rock music festival in the world... This is just a tribute.
July - Manchester Music Festival - From dance to classical, opera to rock, this is Manchester's biggest music festival.
July - The Greater Manchester Fringe. Step aside Edinburgh! This is the biggest fringe festival in the north of England with the UK's funniest faces.

Top of the Shops

Affleck's Palace - Uber trendy fashion. Vintage, retro, cyberpunk and everything in between. A must for any fashion conscious hens.
J'adore Vintage - Cromwell Road is home to J'adore Vintage, a simply superb collection of the styles of yesteryear.
Junk Shop - We're huge fans of the Junk Shop which stocks 'sustainable fashion' and is well worth a visit.
intu Trafford Centre - Manchester's largest shopping mall.

Girls About Town - Getting around Manchester...

Manchester has great transport to get the girls around town with trams, buses and trains. A System One travelcard is the most cost-effective way to buzz about the city allowing you to hop on and off public transport and you can pay for your cards in advance.

Hen Days

Manchester has one of the largest selection of hen friendly activities anywhere in the UK. From relaxing pleasure to high adrenalin adventures, the world really is your lobster!

  • Dance Classes - From sexy pole dancing and burlesque to 80's inspired dance classes. Get the girls moving to professionally choreographed routines.
  • Cocktail Mixing - Mix hen business with pleasure... Plus a few dashes of vodka and voila! Your own hen party cocktail extravaganza.
  • Afternoon Tea - A little oasis of elegance in the middle of all the laughter, sip tea, enjoy dainty finger sandwiches, cakes and fancies and pretend to be grown-up for a while.
  • Trampoline Park - Or forget all about being a grown-up and jump on our trampoline park. As Tigger would say it's "bouncy bouncy bouncy bouncy fun fun fun fun fun."
  • School Sports Day - Another chance to regress to childhood on this hilarious sports day. Compete in teams, you could even add fancy dress, Hogwarts vs St Trinians?

Hen Nights

Manchester nights are legendary. A true party city, it has some of the best nightlife in the country, in fact, if you can't have a good time here then you might as well stay home and watch Corrie. But with GoHen you can get VIP treatment all the way. From Guestlist Club Entry to the hottest seats at a Male Strip Show or Reserved Dining at a wide selection of restaurants.

Fed by two nearby universities, Oxford Road draws a slightly younger crowd, but if there's one thing you can say about students, it's that they know how to party! Oxford Road is party central! Don't be fooled into thinking it is exclusively youngsters, though, there are a few bars dotted about which draw a slightly older crowd too, so there's something for everyone.

The Printworks

Another hugely popular nightlife zone, The Printworks is purely for the party people. Friday and Saturday nights really kick into gear, so it's worth bearing in mind when you're on your fab Manchester hen weekend. Perfect if you're looking for your standard night out, it's vibrant, lively and always up for a party!


The 'Canary Wharf of the North', Spinningfields is all business by day, but when night-time rolls around it turns into a stylish centre of classy bars and restaurants.

"Book a table? Nah, I'm sure we'll just stumble across somewhere when we're out..." Good luck with that if that's what you choose to do, but from experience we know that's not the best idea in the world. Particularly if there's a fair few of you. It's going to be difficult for restaurants to squeeze you in on short notice, especially during peak season.
Let GoHen take the hassle out of things for you by providing you with pre-paid dining at some of the best restaurants. It's as easy as that, leaving you more time to focus on the important things on a hen do: toasting the bride-to-be.
We can arrange:

  • A fab feast at a top restaurant
  • Reserved tables
  • Order your meals in advance
  • Prepaid dining so no messing around with the bill

Whilst you can walk around the specific party/shopping zones, Manchester is a big city so utilising the public transport is a quick and easy way to navigate the urban sprawl. They operate a handy tram system, which is simple enough to negotiate, and there are also frequent buses and trains. You can always hop in a cab although this tends to cost a few extra quid which, let's face it, you could be spending on important things, like cocktails!
