I have always loved POPTASTIC cannot wait to go again. I went to all the venues from 96 onwards. Since moving away from Manchester I never had a chance to check it out in CRUZ101. So looking forward to it.

Used to be my favourite place to go after visiting a couple of bars on a night. Not any more. Completely ruined my pride weekend by refusing entry because I was 'wobbling' and was apparently too drunk... to enter. Considering that I do not drink as I suffer from severe kidney stones (exacerbated by alcohol intake), I was completely taken a back by the bouncers comments. I tried to explain that in fact, I had simply tripped on the leg of the barrier but was told that as the other bouncer had made his 'judgment' myself and my friends would not be allowed to enter. I wasn't rude, I didn't cause a fuss; I simply tried to explain the situation. I find this kind of discrimination without actually taking the time to listen to what potential clientelle have to say to be completely distasteful. The bouncer in question was aggressive and extremely rude to myself and my friends, simply because I objected to his flat out refusal to listen to reason, or even to converse in a mature, intellectual level. I realise that nothing I say will make any difference as I have come to understand that regular customers really don't matter all that much, and can be spoken to in any manner. Any other business would fail if customers were treated with such disdain; it's a shame that the same doesn't apply to bars and clubs. See More

Had a good night until they wouldn't give my coat back! Told us to wait until the end of the night to get it back. We waited but then they wouldn't let us back in the club to get the coat. They told u...s to come back the next day to get it, they'll be open at midday. I went back and they're shut and getting no answer when I call them. The bouncers and staff were so rude and swearing at people outside. There was no need for that sort of language. Fuming because i dont even live in Manchester and I'm here for work. Im now travelling back to London in December, it's freezing and I have no coat. See More

The place is amazing but the bouncers really spoil it. They grabbed me and threw me out for no reason and caused a bruise on my arm also wouldn't give me my coat back. Eventually persuaded them and £5... and my cigs were missing from my pocket! They also grabbed my friend from behind by the neck. The bouncers are too rough. I will never visit again! See More

The draft lager tasted viniger-ish, I let the staff know, got a replacement but not before the supervisor gave me a mouthful. The replacement tasted like shit too, so ended up having to pay for a bott...le. No customer service at all. Doubt they clean the lines, definitely bottles only if you come here. See More

Was a good night until they wouldn't give me my jacket back. Aggressive and rude bar staff. 'Manager' is absolutely disgraceful with a mouth like a public toilet. Bouncers are useless and make false ...accusations. Thrown out for asking for my own property back. Wtf?. Never again. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy! See More

You can get a round of jaeger bombs for under a tenner whilst dancing to 'Spice Up Your Life' whist being groped by a drag queen then get lucky on the dance floor and have a snog. Drinks are cheap and... so am I! Fun fun fun! See More

let's see, hosting a racist group for pride, splashing about pictures of putin in drag makeup, because you know, being trans, femme or whatever is humiliating, right? oh, and... wait, mocking trump wi...th a picture of him making out with putin, because hey, being gay is gross, right? All in all I think that adds up to 1 star. See More

Then again I may be biased, I worked at the original Poptastic on Portland Street and on some of the Nottingham and Belfast onenighter's. It is aimed Squarely at the Student Crowd, but EVERYONE IS WEL...COME. Its fun camp and friendly. Check it out for yourself, they always say the best way to find out if you like it is to taste it.

This place is trash for hosting the highly offensive Queens of Pop. Completely disgusting, and the responses from Poptastic have been pathetic - justifying racism and transphobia with half baked, over...used, archaic arguments. Avoid avoid avoid. See More

Condescending, power hungry, arrogant, idiot of a bouncer. Never returning to this vile place after being spoken to in such a rude manner. Avoid at all costs!

Every time I've been here it's been a mistake. The fact that they are willing to host an infamously racist, transphobic and sexist act and are actively defending this decision should say enough about ...Poptastic. Do yourself a favour and find another night out or donate the money you would spend to a local LGBT organisation. See More

Had a right laugh on the 1st of April during the day. The lad (don't know his name but he had a stretcher in his ear) behind the bar made me and my cousin welcome and got us very drunk will be going in again

Disgrace that you are hosting bigoted Queens of pop and defending your decision to do so with some properly bullshit excuses. Sort it out.

Promoting transphobia, racism and sexism as some bizarre kind of 'equality' is absolutely disgusting and furthers that many 'LGBTQ' venues only really serve cis white gay men

Hosting racist performers and then defending it with a really shitty copy-pasted response is not ok, this is not complicated shit. Sort it out.
