Manchester’s retro retreat Club Tropicana relaunches after major refurb 


Remember 80s nightclubs? Wham! sang about one in Club Tropicana.

Club Tropicana, drinks are free,
Fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone.
All that’s missing is the sea,
But don’t worry, you can suntan!

Now you can relive the golden age of spandex and big hair at Manchester’s only 80s-themed nightclub, which has undergone an impressive six-figure refurbishment.

Club Tropicana’s striking retro concept pays homage to the very best of the 80s with plenty of bright colours and plenty of glitter, a statement neon bar, artwork featuring the era’s favourite icons and a neon disco sign, together with private booth seating areas.

Serving an impressive cocktail menu featuring concoctions such as Club Tropicana, Absolutely Fabulous, Electric Dreams, Maverick and Salt ‘n’ Pepa, Club Tropicana’s DJ plays the very best of the 80s ranging from Wham! to Duran Duran and everything in between.

As part of the building’s refurbishment, REM Hotel above the club at 33 Sackville Street has also undergone a total makeover. But in contrast to the outlandish decor of Club Tropicana, all six rooms feature neutral colour schemes, relaxed furnishings and comfortable beds to guarantee a good night’s sleep.

“Our new 80s theme will welcome disco divas and glamorous guys to channel their inner Madonnas and Michael Jacksons all weekend long,” says owner Lee Montgomery.

At Club Tropicana, the drinks may not be free – but the good times certainly are. And so is entry, Friday-Saturday 7:30pm-3am.
