Manchester is getting a new music venue called YES

YES Manchester

Manchester promoters Now Wave are transforming a former auctioneers house on Charles Street into a new, independent music venue.

The four-storey music venue, bar and eatery will be called YES and its opening weekend will be held on 21-23 September. YES will feature a basement club, ground floor beer hall bar, live Pink Room and an open roof top terrace fitted with a NASA-approved sound system. Entry into the bar and roof terrace will be kept free.

Co-founder Jon Wickstead says, “We’re proud to be able to contribute to the city’s independent scene which is why we’ll continue promoting events in its other amazing venues, and we hope YES will allow our collective experience to help others do amazing things as well.”

Across the rest of the year, Now Wave will host the likes of Octavian, Gilles Petersen, Snail Mail, Bodega and more at the venue.
