Matt & Phred's Jazz Club, Manchester
Matt and Phred's is Manchester's only dedicated jazz club, and if you like jazz, you'll love it. You can sit and listen to live jazz six nights a week. Occassionally it'll be the venue for a full-on jazz or folk gig. It's open Monday to Saturday, from 5pm to 2am. Entrance is free Mon - Wed. Thu-Sat, it's free until around 9/9:30pm; expect to pay around £6 to get in thereafter. They do great pizzas; expect to pay £4 upwards for one. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, especially when the musicians are good - expect a little variation on that front. It's a good relaxed crowd, mostly 20+ years, but generally a wide age range.
One downside - the beer's expensive.
Dress Code: No dress code.
Address: 85 Oldham Street, entrance on Tib Street
Directions: Northern Quarter; from Piccadilly Gardens, it's best to walk directly down Tib Street, just by the Market Street tram stop. It's on the right side of the street.
