A hotel in Manchester has launched a new package geared towards nights out – and curing the hangover the next day.
Native, the huge aparthotel inside the Ducie Street Warehouse building, has created ‘Nocturnal Natives’.
The packages include a rave recovery pack, money to spend in the bar downstairs, a Bloody Mary at breakfast and a late-checkout.
Even if your usual hangover cure is a Lucozade and 11 hours straight on Netflix, this sounds like a pretty nifty alternative…
The scheme has been dreamt up to support and celebrate Manchester’s buzzing nightlife and club scene, right in time for the silly season.
The vision is that guests will use the Nocturnal Native packages to wind down from Warehouse Project, recover from Christmas parties and make the most of a gigs at venues like Band on the Wall and The White Hotel.
It’s in collaboration with Happy Tuesdays, a brand that sells post-rave wellness packs of all-in-one supplements with 26 nutrients to support mind and body.
Happy Tuesdays also shares rave tips and hacks, such as benefits of dancing, how to level-up your partying, and the quality of sleeps – including a 90-minute nap before you start dancing.
Those who book a Nocturnal Native package receive a £25 gift card on arrival to spend at the ground floor bar for pre-drink cocktails and snacks.

Printworks to unveil its £21m transformation with huge free party
Manchester’s landmark venue Printworks will be celebrating the completion of its £21m refurbishment with a massive free party.
The huge new-look venue will have TikTok sensation DJ SUAT headlining the launch party on 21 March.
SUAT will be live-streaming from Manchester city centre during the day, running around town on his signature portable DJ decks and handing out VIP tickets for the Printworks party.
He’ll be performing around Exchange Square and streaming live from the roof of Printworks, with a third location yet to be revealed.
SUAT now has more than one million followers on social media thanks to his viral public live streams, which have included him DJing while paragliding over a festival and kayaking down Amsterdam Canal.
When the launch party itself kicks off in the evening, SUAT, who has played at some of the biggest club nights and festivals in the world, will be delivering a crowd-pleasing dance party for hundreds of guests at the city centre venue.
He’ll be joined for the evening by Bohemian House Choir and a host of other performers and dancers.
It’s all to celebrate the new-look Printworks, which will be an immersive, digital-first leisure destination and entertainment venue.
As part of the refurb, Printworks will be home to the largest digital ceiling in Europe, bathing the internal streets in colourful light and sound.
Printworks will throw a huge free launch party after its refurb.
Lydia Ellis from Printworks comments: “SUAT has been on a mission to change stereotypes in electronic dance music and has captured the hearts of fans across the globe.
“He’s the perfect star to celebrate the new, digitally immersive Printworks. The Centre will always be free to enter so everyone can come and experience the spectacular content, which has to be seen to be believed.
“We’re breaking new ground with our digital screens and SUAT is breaking new ground musically and with his style of performance. It’ll be a launch party like no other.”
The free Printworks launch party will take place from 7pm on Thursday 21 March, with SUAT headlining at 8.30pm.
