The Northern Quarter definitely isn’t short of live music venues but Matt and Phreds is the place to go if you’re bored of the usual offerings. Tucked away on Tib Street the bar showcases some of the best local and international jazz acts with a sprinkling of gypsy, folk, salsa, electro and swing too. Over the years Matt and Phreds has hosted the likes of Jamie Cullum and even Adele, to give you an idea of the calibre of performers.
There are six gigs every week which are free from Monday to Thursday or just a small £ 5 door charge at the weekend so it’s perfect whether you just fancy a quiet drink after work or need somewhere to let your hair down on a Friday night.
Matt and Phreds also serves up food to accompany your drinks and live music and, best of all, if you buy two drinks during happy hour then your pizza is on the house. Who can say no to free pizza?
