Who goes out on a Thursday? Well, I do on occasion, and there are a handful of places in Manchester that still pop off. Neighbourhood was busy at half ten, where the photographers were clustered around a group of people- included it seems were Queen of the Jungle and Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison. I didn't recognise her but I did spot former Eastender Dean Gaffney and former WBO light-welterweight champ Ricky Hatton (who wasn't bowled over when I told him I'd read his autobiography. Banter.) The M.E.N writeup has more.
There are a few familiar faces there now having been on a few Spinningfields nights out. Friendly bar.
Sakana was dead at half eleven so I dived straight into celeb hangout LIV for their new Thursday night Socialite event, where Hatton bought copious amounts of Moet and hung out with a guy who looked like Chochise from The Warriors. Pretty much all the aforementioned ended up in LIV. Pics from the night are here. With a slightly younger clientele Socialite is a great night, and only £7 instead of the Saturday night £10 door charge.
Thursdays: the new Fridays? If you dare...
