Next month, Manchester will play host to the MA500 business club conference and study tour and we can now reveal the vibrant venues included.

The city’s Principal Hotel will house the conference on the 16 May, which includes top tips​ on running comedy nights, an overview on the food delivery sector, advice from successful operators and how best to deal with a crisis.

This will be followed the MA500 crowd pounding the pavements of Manchester to see what the city has to offer:


A stone’s throw from the city’s Northern Quarter is beer and Indian joint Bundobust. This is the company’s second site, following on from its success in Leeds. Gujurat-inspired street food and craft beer from local and international breweries.

Northern Monk Refectory

Leeds-based Northern Monk brewer and operator opened its Northern Quarter taproom in September last year where guests can choose from 16 keg lines, four cask and three draught cocktails alongside four mixed cocktails.

While the taproom, unsurprisingly, serves many Northern Monk beers, drinkers can also choose from a variety of guest brews.

Blackdog Ballroom

This New York-style venue combines a bar, diner and pool hall in the city’s Northern Quarter.

Its popular brunches, impromptu cocktails and late-night partying make it a hit with guests alongside a carefully curated cocktail list and American food offer,


This retro arcade game bar is a hidden gem down a back alley. With its cavern of classic consoles and old-school games, this basement drinking den offers the chance for customers to go back in time with a bit of nostalgia at NQ64.

Flight Club

With an electric atmosphere combined with a mind-blowing experience, Flight Club claims to be the world’s first ‘social darts’ venue.

A traditional game of darts that has been transformed with exciting multiplayer games to create a social experience like no other for groups of three to 300.


A hidden gin palace, an immersive nightclub as well as food dishes inspired by the boroughs of Manchester, Impossible combines the best of food, drink and experience to entice punters in.
