Funny – some years there's nothing to do in Manchester on New Year's Eve, but this year two clubs take place within 10 minutes walk of each other – the previously-mentioned Hideaway New Year's Eve event and now the No Way Out NYE party.
The night is a No Way Out v Pow Wow night, with DJs Mik Parry, Callum, Johnny Cockerline and Phil Saxe. It takes place (as you can imagine) on 31st December 2009 at Barca in Castlefield, £10 gets you in.
Full details in events section. Maybe the two events can run some sort of pass out scheme so you can try each one?
