It was inevitable really. Following the success of the ice skating rink in Piccadilly Gardens, it seems roller skating is having a renaissance.
First the warehouse ‘CabaRave’ last week featured roller skating (and cabaret, unsurprisingly). Now, otherwise worthless nightclub Billie Rox (106-108 Portland Street) is getting in on the act:
Join us for Manchester’s ONLY Roller Disco, yes thats right “ROLLER DISCO”, a night where you put on a pair a roller skates and roll the night away, with over 300 pairs of skates to choose from, we can hire you a pair quad skates for just Ł3, or you can even hire a pair of roller blades for only Ł5.
It’s every Tuesday, from 8am til 2am, for over 18s. The dress code is leg warmer and sweat bands of course. Admission is Ł2 all night.
There’s a repeat every Thursday too, but the presence of DJ Phat Pat that night puts me off a bit.
