South is Manchester’s original underground basement dive club… and proud of it. Launched by Paul Cons the promotions manager of the Hacienda, South became a kickback from Gunchester and the violence surrounding the Hacienda at the time. Created as an antidote to the superclub… a tiny dive club… dark and deliberately underground.

South launched seminal nights including The Glory Hole, Rinky Dink and Board which featured an in-club skateboard ramp, but the club really hit home with The Rock+Roll Bar and later Clint Boon’s Disco Rescue - a clubnight without pretension where you didn’t have to be scared to party.

South is back… Redesigned by Ben Kelly the original designer of the Hacienda, with a huge soundsystem from our friends at Funktion One.  South continues to throw nights and cutting edge parties at the forefront of the industry.

1995 to 2014. South is 19 yrs young…
