Three to see this weekend: festive cheer, drinking beer and taking your party up a gear

This weekend’s picks are an eclectic bunch.

For those who haven’t tried it, Breakout’s new room is a fail safe bet. Grab your woolies and your best pals and head down. Disturbed is the one to watch. Click here if you fancy booking in.

For those of you who don’t quite fancy breaking out of a locked room and planned on lazing around the house, stop it. Put the tin of Quality Street down, peel yourself off the sofa, and get yourself out into the city. Whether you fancy a full on party bash at Flash or you’re getting into the full on festive feels at Bar Hutte, there’s plenty to get your teeth into.

Here’s this weekend’s three to see in no particular order.

Bar Hutte at Spinningfields

Bar Hutte Manchester

It doesn’t get more winter warming than this. Come and experience a unique take on après-ski Manchester style. Each hütte comes with its very own host and a Carol-oke machine so everyone can grab the mic and sing along to all the Christmas classics with a festive cocktail in hand. It’s the perfect place for festive get togethers. Each hütte requires a non-refundable deposit of £30 which secures your exclusive use of the hütte for 6 to 10 people for two hours. Snazzy.

Flash Saturday at The Milton Club

Every Saturday, Flash takes over The Milton Club with show-stopping moments, production and theatrics to create a party with a pulse. Feel the energy with roof-raising party anthems alongside music video mash-ups from old skool throwbacks to your favourite floor-fillers and guilty pleasures. Flash is the night you’ll want to relive, where good times make the best memories, so leave your expectations at the door. Expect surprise shows and plenty of crowd moments, confetti cannons and special effects, music video screens, guest DJ’s and all sorts of eclectic acts. For the ultimate Flash experience get your advanced tickets, which include entry and a free-flowing bar from 10pm until 3am. This is a night not to be missed. Click here to book in.
