Combining two venues in one, Pub/Zoo is both a bar and a venue for club and comedy events. The pub's extensive food and drink options make it a popular student hangout and a prime choice for an evening meal, with plenty of traditional pub grub, burgers, salads and lots of vegetarian options available. They also serve breakfast all day and roast dinners on Sundays. Head round the side to Zoo and you'll find events most nights — the most popular being XS Malarkey; a multi award winning stand up comedy night. As well as comedians such as Jason Manford and Alan Carr starting their careers off here, the club has seen the likes of Stewart Lee, Sarah Millican and Chris Addison perform since it began in 1997. It still strives to support those at the beginning of their comedy careers, from Manchester and further afield. The not-for-profit event is run simply for their love of stand up comedy, with a low door price and the country's best upcoming comedic talents clamouring for a spot at the weekly night — they regularly host TV stars that you won't see at such cheap prices anywhere else. [Charlotte Davies]
