Our drinks nights are, as you would expect, among our more purely social occasions. Whether meeting for a couple of hours after work or staying out until late on a weekend, you will have numerous opportunities in any calendar month with Social Circle to get out there and have fun while enjoying a drink or two. If you love cocktails, a glass of wine, or a pint, we visit a diverse range of venues each and every month so you can be sure that your tastebuds will be more than satisfied. If you're wondering how to make friends in Manchester, you can stop now.

Social Circle Pub Crawls

I love pub crawls and had been trying to organise one with my mates for about a year. But I could never get them all to agree on a date, especially with two of them having recently been married. The Social Circle pub crawls have been described as legendary and I would have to agree. There were at least 20 of us and every one of them were far more fun than my mates would have been.

Friends Were In Relationships

I reached that stage where most of my friends were in relationships and I had really become the odd one out, so drinks nights had become few and far between. Since joining Social Circle, I have been going out for drinks a couple of times a months at least. There always seems to be an exciting new venue on the calendar.

Cocktail Bars

I love sampling new cocktails and with cocktail bars opening up all of the time in Manchester, I didn't want to let them go to waste. The problem is that my friends don't like going to the same kind of venues that I do. So it was great to see that Social Circle offered so much choice to cater for everyone with all kinds of tastes. I now get to go to the venues I want to.


Types Of Event


Pub Crawls

Our pub crawls are among the more popular Manchester social events on our calendar. In fact, I'd go as far as to use the word 'legendary'. Didsbury, Chorlton, the Northern Quarter, and Deansgate are among the areas we frequent on a regular basis.

Drinks Nights

We mix up our drinks nights with the most popular venues among our members with new the latest and greatest pubs and bars. We prefer weekends for drinks nights but also regularly feature midweek drinks for those wishing to unwind after work.


Our mingles draw some of the larger crowds of both couples and singles in Manchester. There are few better occasions to meet new people than a Social Circle mingle, always at a premium Manchester venue.
