People tend to check in during these times:
Drinks are student prices before 2030!
Bar staff will clean up your spew if required
How'd you get up on the balcony?
Solid gig venue. Great place to watch up and coming bands just before they go "stadium". Consistently average to good acoustics in unremarkable settings
Retarded policy of not giving you the cap for a bottle of water. It's not like you can stab a man with one, is it?!
No bottles, no glow sticks, curfew normally 11pm! Outdoor smoking area. Lots of loos bar in academy 1 and outside in main area.
I was ment to see a live band but must of took a wrong turn, as it seems I ended up at a Lumberjack convention, sale on checkered shirts at Topshop you say?
Best tip, see the bands before they get big enough to play here. If you must, bring earplugs.
Balcony is reserved for disabled people who have requested space or a seat in advance, saves getting damaged by the crowd downstairs. You need to put in an accommodation request when booking tickets.
Cold if you're sat round watching roller derby in winter!
Awful venue for a gig, went to see a very visual band and the stage was obscured by the pillars from multiple angles. Probably great for a DJ but not this time
I was wondering if there is a place for playing darts,such as dart machine as this http://vdarts.net/.
Be the first to check-in & find Zack (our drummer) for a very special prize at tonight's show!
Fantastic variety of music on offer - cheap parking next door, and Kro bar cross the road for pub food!
Really intimate and decent place to get up close to whoever if performing.
Juan Megan's concert at Manchester Academy Saturday 20th April . 10am to 6 am.
Great music venue, there's usually two merch stands one for the headliner and one at the back of the room for the supports. Cloakroom is available for about £1.50 and check the Facebook for showtimes
Awful sound. Bring earplugs.
Park in car park at left of the building as you look at it from Oxford Road, buzz to enter and mind the high curbs, you need £2 (2 1£) to park no change given, no reverse so you best have it exact!
Good venue, alot of fun!
