Love Funakdemia, have been going for over 10 years now. My tip though os to check which DJ is on first, a couple of the old DJs that they seem to stay loyal to are just are not good enough.... stay away from any night with Trafford Lovething and you will be fine.

Very well suited to Mint Lounge, much nicer club than One Central Street, never did warm to the shabby chic basement that was long overdue a refurb (although I have been in since it is No.1 Club and looks super). I was worried about hitting a club full of northern quarter trendies and was also worried Funkademia would change its music policy to suit the new-cool... however Funkademia has carried on where it left off and there is a nice mixture of familiar faces and northern quarter cool dudes. The other positive is the second room which I actually prefer, music seems to be a bit more specialist.

dont think I could go every week as the music can tend to be similar.... but I will be trying to make a regular monthly visit. The crowd has really improved since I last went in december and after speaking with the very nice door people I was told that this is something they had been working on and had a zero tolerance with trouble makers or scallies, it has made a difference. The only downside is that I got there at 11:30 and had to wait for 30 minutes to get in as it was that busy, my advice to anyone going down would be to get there before 11, a few of my mates got in with in 10 minutes. I was unsure about the move from oxford road but the venue does really suit funkademia...

went for the first time last week and loved it... one of the most diverse crowds i have seen in a club but it worked well, everyone just there for the music it seems. DJs played a good mixture of soul funk and disco, with some big party tunes too - was really good to hear candi station you got the love in a club again. Ill be going again that for sure.

Funkademia...put simply, is the best night out I've had. It's the dictionary definition of cool, and if you can't dance here, then you've got no legs. Great tunes, great atmosphere...what more could you want?

this has to be one of the best saturday nights going. the music, without question, is always good, the dj's play such an eclectic mix and although the venue isn't the attic, subspace gives you much more room to move and also to chill out. what ever mood you're in this place will lift your spirits and make it impossible for you not to move your feet!

After some initial reservations, I think the new venue's ace. Reminds me of the old Funkademia at the Attic (back to its roots and not as commercial as SubSpace) lovin it! So pleased the resident DJ's have followed Funkademia!! All in all a good positve move!!
