For 25 years, Joshua Brooks has been one the main places to go on the Oxford Road Corridor for a night of music, clubbing and dancing – and that stands true now more than ever. Recently boosted by a £200,000 investment, the modern Joshua Brooks is bigger and better than ever.
Despite the unassuming exterior, this legendary venue has provided amazing nights out for countless Manchester residents over the past couple of decades, from students to long-standing clubbers. During the day, the venue’s burgers and banana doughnut balls may be the main feature, but its main draw comes from the series of club nights that regularly hosts some of the best DJs from the UK and beyond.
Expect DJs, drinks and dancing at Joshua Brooks. It’s usually packed to the rafters with people and energy at the weekend, full of neon strobes and pounding music. And if you need a breather, you can spend a moment on their terrace in between sets – a place where many friendships have been formed over the years.
