Revolution reviews

By Roxx R.

Would just like to say thanks for everyone at Rev's, especially the DJ Drew Hardy, he played the best tracks, no too poppy & not too underground. Perfect night.

Dropped into Revolution Deansgate for a few after work drinks and something to eat. It had the usual soulless vibe of a chain bar, only without the cheaper prices. After waiting at the bar for a while a waitress came and told us we would be better off taking a seat. So we waited there some more and eventually ordered two flat San Miguel pints that came pre spilt and all. I looked over a menu with Bob Marely on the front who apparently inspired the philosophy behind the Revolution brand, what a wank... We waived down a waiter then ordered some Denver Fries and Nachos. They both came out cold and with tough beef, they must of been confused with their table numbers because I saw the meals being passed around the waiters. The Fries and Nachos came to almost 20 quid so we thought they would be semi decent but were just bland and soggy. We left them half eaten, the staff didnt seem to care and they just left them there too. I don't see why so many people bother with this pretentious and mediocre restaurant/nightspot when Manchester offers much better elsewhere.

The biggest of the four Manchester Revolutions, this is a well-designed and cavernous mecca for the mainstream party crowd.

The Venue
Under the railway arches and facing the waterway Revolution has, like the other bars in this strip, a decked terrace backing to the waterway. Inside it’s stylish, modern and spacious with its high ceiling and polished wooden floor.

Space-age chairs are mixed up with cream leather banquettes and exposed brickwork vies with 70s-style wallpaper. The room is divided in two by the enormous, thick arches in the middle and there are bars at both ends of the venue. Elsewhere there are sections with marble-effect tables with high cream stools and low sofas and beige banquettes.

There are loads of big, big mirrors, which give the impression of more space and there is a ginormous mirror ball too, which competes with the one in The Deaf Institute for the prize of the biggest in Manchester. Half hidden behind a slatted wooden screen is a small upstairs area which houses the DJ booth and which has a contemporary urban vibe. And there’s a club downstairs as well, which completes a massive venue.

The People
Ladies who glitter and glow more brightly than a birthday cake are here in their droves along with groups of guys who have spent far too long straightening or coiffing their hair. It’s a popular place for groups of friends and those on the lash or the pull on pretty much most days of the week.

The Food and Drink
Although there’s beer on draught (Stella, Staropramen, Guinness, Boddington’s and Beck's) it’s well worth having a cocktail. They can do all the classics, but the house speciality is naturally vodka. A Cherry Cola for the girls (Polska cherry vodka with coke and topped with morello cherries) and the Delboy for guys (Russian vodka, pineapple juice and curacao) (just don’t do a Delboy and fall through the serving hatch).

The Last Word
It comes into its own in the summer and Revolution provides a stylish backdrop to many a top night out and will, no doubt, continue to do so. If you can handle the Deansgate Locks hordes, then give it a whirl.
