Dive’s first Halloween party 2016
Happy Halloween everyone!
Our Day of the Dead special weekender marked our first Halloween at Dive and it’s safe to say, we did it in style. Kicking off with a monster party on Friday 28th featuring spooktacular makeovers, stilt walkers, fire breathers and a surprise flash mob from Salford University Dance Society as well as some seriously special cocktails and themed shots, it was a night full of treats right through until 5am for all who attend…no tricks involved!
The Salford University Dance Society flashmob was filmed on the night please click to view the full performance right here.
Saturday the 29th was one of our biggest nights on record with the venue seeing a record number of party goers through the door. Our resident DJ played a mash-up of songs including some Halloween classics to keep the dancefloor filled and we stretched out the celebrations for an extra hour as we turned the clocks back.
On the big day itself, we partnered up with high street Game to host a Halloween themed gaming night. It was the last day to grab our special Halloween drinks. What a way to end Halloween weekend…

We’ve got some very exciting news to share with everyone…
A few weeks back we were selected by Sky Sports as the number one venue in Manchester to watch all of the live sports. Showing the football, boxing, tennis, olympics, grand national & much more.. We literally show everything!
Alongside Carling, the Official Beer and Cider of the Premier League, Sky launched a brand new football show called ‘Carling In off The Bar’ which was a sideshow to their main Friday night football programme.
Their first ever show was broadcast right here at Dive NQ on Friday 19th August to celebrate the first homecoming fixture of the season; Manchester United vs Southampton. Soccer AM presenters Adam Smith & Laura Woods took centre stage & broadcast live from our basement venue at 10:45pm.
Ex premier league football players Trevor Sinclair & Alan Smith came down on the night to show their support for the new show. Trevor even pulled a sneaky pint of carling from behind our bar….

As part of this exciting new partnership, we were the first venue to be fitted out with the latest 65 inch, ultra HD television screens so our customers can watch all the live sporting action in high definition…

Managing partner for the brand, Vincent Braine says, “It is a real honour and achievement for us to be chosen by Sky Sports as the first gold tier venue to watch the football in the UK. Dive NQ have changed the way sport is being delivered to our customers, offering a premium viewing experience coupled with high quality food and drinks.”

If you’re reading this then you’ve made it… to our brand spanking new website! We officially launched the venue last year in late November and it’s been non-stop from the word GO.
After opening we literally threw ourselves into Christmas. It was pretty messy! Baubles & tinsel everywhere… We’ve spent the rest of year building club night brands and perfecting our offers & deals to keep you guys happy 🙂
A new website has been on the cards since we opened but as a small in-house team it’s taken a little longer than expected, after all we are a team of perfectionists.
But ta da… here it is. What do you think? We’ve got plenty of offers to see you through the week. With our 55% off all food on Mondays to our happy hour deals everyday from 5pm till 8pm and our £5 lunch deal including burger & fries, NY club, nicoise salad, chilli beef tacos & ¼ chicken… What more could you want!?
If you haven’t been to see us before, we also open until 5am every weekend. Dance the night away and go home when the sun comes up. We’re the only place in the Northern Quarter to stay open so late!
