8 Things You Should Never EVER Do On A Night Out In Manchester
Let this be your warning for tonight...

1. Expose yourself on the Met
It's just not a smart move, folks.
2. Get an Uber home
Not unless you're planning on living on beans on toast for the next few months...
3. Buy a cocktail
Unless it's a pitcher from Spoons, cocktails in this city are getting hellish expensive.
In fact Cloud 23's sharing cocktail will set you back about 30 quid these days. We feel dizzy just thinking about it...
Try pre-drinking – a form of relaxing revelry invented by university students since university began...
Can't wait for Saturday because cocktails are so expensive in Manchester but 2 for 1 in spoons is my life— Emily 🤙 (@phenakist0scope) December 31, 2015
4. Forget a jacket
It's worth the £2 cloakroom charge, trust us, especially when, let's face it, half the night is going to be spent either queueing outside Schloss or wandering the streets post-club trying to find a decent kebab.

5. Go anywhere close to Piccadilly Gardens
Must you really ask?!
You literally go to Piccadilly Gardens and make eye contact with as many dodgy fuckers as you can. You'll be swimming in weed!— Daniel ☕ (@dconama) October 21, 2016
What is it with Piccadilly Gardens? It's a magnet for the shady, dodgy and dangerous.— Kev McGuinness (@guinny01) August 26, 2016
6. Miss out Crazy Pedros
It's open until 3am every night of the week (say whhhaaa?!) AND it serves pizza til that time too!
Think allll the craziest toppings - this place is true to its name - so you can enjoy a chicken and waffle slice or a mac daddy whilst getting your groove on.
7. Think you're too good for The Font
The Font is too good for you, my friend.
This place may not be full of wannabe WAGS, but that's exactly why we like it, and remember what we said earlier about cocktail prices?
This place sells them for an average of £2-3 - and yes, they are actually alcoholic.

8. Assume you can just 'wing it'
Technically you can of course, but the savvy among us will know that a little pre-planning doesn't go amiss on a night out in Manchester.
There are tons of happy hour deals to take advantage of in the city - you just have to know where to look - meaning you'll have more dosh to spend on hangover food later.
