What says happy birthday like a big boozy bash in the street?

One of the most exciting bars in Manchester, Red Light, is hosting a big street party to mark an incredible first year of service.

To mark their first birthday over on Little David Street, they’re turning Kampus into one big party neighbourhood – and we already know they’re pretty good at that – teaming up with Flash, pioneers of the iconic Ibiza party scene, to make sure it’s a belter.

Positioned as one of the liveliest LGBTQ+ bars in Manchester city centre, they’ve built up a really strong following in their first 12 months and now they’re set to celebrate in style.

Oh, and you’re invited, of course.

As promised by the expert mixologists themselves, guests can expect expertly crafted Red Light cocktails in an inclusive and carefree atmosphere, all tucked away in arguably the coolest little side street in Manchester.


There’ll also be plenty of summer classics like Aperol spritzes and daiquiris, as well as some special Red Light party treats, such as Frozen Irish Coffee and Pink Picantes.

Tunes will be provided by Guy Williams, Flash’s founder, who currently houses the self-proclaimed “polysexual party where everyone’s welcome” at Ibiza institution, Pikes, so you already know they’re going to guarantee a good time.


We saw similar street party scenes at Kampus last year and they didn’t disappoint – well, Manchester never does.

The boutique hotel and Balearic island clubbers have been going since 1980 and are famous for their inclusive nightlife and rich cultural history.

It’s where they filmed George Michael’s iconic ‘Club Tropicana’ after all and if it was good enough for Freddie Mercury (one of their most famous regulars), then it’s more than good enough for us.


Red Light’s first birthday street party takes place on 1 June with last entry at 5pm, so be sure to get there early and soak up as much of the atmosphere as possible.
