Owner description: Be transported into the crazy world of Hula... A 1950s inspired, Tiki hideout and late night party venue, packed to the brim with thrill seekers, partying into the early hours. The basement bar exudes tropical beach-style - with retro, kitsch vibes complete with mesmerizing tropical fish tank to greet you as you enter. Hula has a nightly rotation of Manchester's best DJs throughout the week, which ensures a vibrant atmosphere from the minute the doors open. The cocktail menu harbours classic, authentic concoctions for those who wish to play it safe, and for the more adventurous there's a selection of wild and wacky potions.

Visiting this week, the venue was totally dead. Two unattentive barmen messed around behind the bar and seemed put out by us ordering drinks. We paid over £23 for three bizarre cocktails with very little in the way of taste, authenticity and decent ingredients. This place is truly lost and suffering an identity crisis. It's a tiki bar (in theory) but serves diluted bad cocktails and plays reggae music. Would not return. Ever.

A great fun night. Have a taste of the South seas in Manchester. Lots of great drinks to choose and regular happy hours. Often some great tunes also.

My first visit. The cocktails were nicely made, ok selection, 2 for £10 when I went which was a good offer for Friday tea-time. Smaller than I thought it was going to be. I don't believe there is step free access....
However, friendly staff and in a good spot. Will be going back.

Pretensious. Full of rude people. Over-filled - unsafe. Idiots throwing drinks everywhere. Used to be a regular but won't be going back. Crap.

Great wee bar. Visited the bar when in Manchester in January, planned to stay for one cocktail but ended up staying the whole night. Great music, Great atmosphere. Definitely must visit.
