On Saturday 17th December, the most meaningful UK black music magazine on the net heads to Manchester’s dedicated black music party spot for its big Christmas bash.
There’s a good reason why Manchester’s Lounge 31 has earned a reputation as one of the city’s liveliest party spots with one of the most hard-hitting musical programmes. Rather than being run by corporate investors in suits who are clueless when it comes to music, this venue is owned and operated by a group of young DJs.
The Brown Suga collective, headed by Eddie Down, had already been putting on successful nights in the North West for some time before the opportunity arose to manage their own spot.
Lounge 31 vies for trade with several other bars, clubs and eateries in the bustling Printworks complex, but always tends to come out on top with the city’s urban music heads through hosting a variety of special events – album launch parties, celebrity and PA appearances, a healthy array of guest DJs, and regular competitions and giveaways. Even on a regular night, the in-house DJs and MCs guarantee a memorable clubbing experience.
Black Sheep Mag’s Mark Devlin will be joining the regular Lounge/ Brown Suga/ Chic Amore crew on 17th December for a lively mash-up of tuneage, keeping the party faithful moving all the way to dawn. Expect plenty of giveaways too – well, it is nearly Christmas.
Lounge 31 is at 31 Withy Grove, Manchester, Greater Manchester M4 2BJ. Phone: 0161 819 4710. Further info here.
