The Circle Club review
Private members clubs are normally staid affairs, and Manchester has had its fair share of those. The infamous Press Club (named because its main customers were journo?s and print operators who didn?t finish till the early hours) is more suited to those over the age of 35, and the now-defunct Reform was classy, but very boring.Read more The Circle Club reviews (15 reviews)9 people agree, 5 people disagree with this review 10 people agree, 8 people disagree with this review 9 people agree, 9 people disagree with this review 6 people agree, 6 people disagree with this review 11 people agree, 11 people disagree with this review 7 people agree, 7 people disagree with this review 1 person agrees, 1 person disagrees with this review 3 people agree, 1 person disagrees with this review 2 people agree, 3 people disagree with this review
Owner Dominic thus decided that the time was right to open his own members club, and to date it has been a huge success story. Rather than just stick a sign outside a venue and let the profits roll in, the Circle has forged itself as an important part of the local media industry, hosting events and helping bring people together ? it was the official media venue of the 2002 Commonwealth Games and has its finger in most major events in the city.
During the day the Circle is open to its members, and the venue has a meeting room for hire and wireless internet access. They have a reasonable restaurant, and bar food is served right through to 2am but when day turns to night, and the laptops stop tapping, the venue changes into a really funky clubspace. Despite its small capacity (barely 200), it has a better atmosphere than all but a handful of similar Manchester venues, and the crowd is one of the best in the city. Put it this way, The Circle is well hidden behind St Ann's Square and your local roughians aren?t too good at map reading in Manchester.
Friday and Saturday nights play host to some funky r&b and soul grooves ? sometimes this works incredibly well, and it sets it apart from most classy venues that play funky house, but sometimes the deejay can be more of a hindrance than a help. The 4am license is very welcome, with drinks prices surprisingly low, and of course the Circle has a stunningly simple interior.
As you walk down the stairs (the club is located below the ground floor level) you first find yourself at the reception desk, with the bar in front of you. To the right is the main seating area, with another raised relaxation area behind it. To the right is the restaurant during the day which turns into the club space at night and beyond that is the meeting room and the amenities.
And the price for having a wonderful post-club hangout, and a place to sip with the stars? Membership is just £10 per month. Very worth it, in our book, although the policy of letting in members with just two guests on the weekend, and closing the Saturday guestlist at 6pm on a Friday is annoying, but understandable.
