“Excellent for a night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

The ritz is excellent for a night out as they play a variety of music and a decent choice. Cheapish drinks as well. Only downside is the dance floor becomes very wet and easy to slip.

“Good concert! Tired Venue!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

Saw a concert here for the first time. Approx 1200 in audience...standing room only. Venue had an upper floor with some seating and balcony overlooking main floor/stage below. Concert great. Venue not so great. Very tired. Bar expensive. Just under £10 for one pint beer and one glass wine. Overall the place had dark dungeon feeling complete with sticky floors! Luckily the good concert made up for this!

“Good venue for new bands”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

I've watched 2 bands here. The script and kodaline. The script gig was packed, boiling and very sweaty! Although the kodaline gig was less full so it was great. Had a great view and the bang sang from the balcony. The drinks are much cheaper than most venues in manchester. The bar staff are terrible! Be prepared to wait !

“Great little music venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

My first gig at the Ritz Manchester was Savages on Saturday, great gig, great venue.
In the Oxford Road area of Manchester, a really good area, loads of quirky bars, clubs, places to eat. The capacity I think is about 1500, a comfortable number, the downstairs has a large dance floor standing area, with some high tables with stools dotted around the sides of the dance floor and seated areas to the rear of the room. There is also an upstairs balcony area with seating around the balcony and also at the back towards a bar. Service at the bar was quick, but my partner had both a Stella and a Becks on draught and both tasted weird, he took them back and the barman agreed, so I would suggest sticking to bottles. All in all a great venue in a fab area, I would definitely watch a gig there again.
