Sixes, the social venue that opened up in the city’s Corn Exchange last month, is set to launch a world first: UV CRICKET.

Arriving this week, just in time for Halloween, the ground-breaking new activity allows budding cricketers to show off their batting skills in Sixes’ specially designed nets under pioneering UV lights.

Adding another playful element to the world of cricket, the unique experience is mesmerising and magical – and is predicted to quickly attract and engage a new generation of participants while also revitalising a passion for the sport from long-term players.

The batting nets at Sixes are the ultimate immersive experience, but the revolutionary nets aren’t the only star of the show though, with Sixes offering a stunning Great British BBQ themed menu.

You’ll find a menu of Small Plates including Mac & Cheese Croquettes (£7), Burnt End Nuggets (£8.50) and Low & Slow Smoked Chicken Wings (£8).

There’s a selection of ‘Classics’ including the Sixes Burger (£14), Grilled Sea Bass (£23) and Whiskey Glazed Beef Short Rib (£16.50), alongside ‘From the Grill’ sharing boards like their 45-Day Aged Ribeye or Middle White Pork Chop (£18).

You’ll also find the Sixes Sunday Roast, available every week between 11am – 4pm and featuring 45 day aged Hereford Beef Ribeye, Beef fat Roasties, Charred Honey Carrots, Spring Greens, Buttered Savoy, Smoked Cauliflower Cheese, Yorkshire Pudding and lashings of gravy.

Sixes in Manchester is also home to a Champagne Bar, as well as featuring an impressive menu of cocktails that certainly stand out from the crowd.

There’s a range of ‘Experimental’ cocktails which include the ‘Pickled Ploughman’ (£10); pickled gin with sherry vinegar, cheese and crackers, and ‘Bread & Butter’ (£11); Hennessey VS with brown butter, spiced honey and bread.

Andy Waugh, Co-Founded of Sixes, says: “Launching in time for Halloween, we’re taking Sixes Social Cricket to the next level with UV Cricket. Glow in the dark cricket alongside knockout cocktails means the party atmosphere is now well and truly happening at Sixes.”

Whether you’re after something different this Halloween, a long-overdue work party or just a fun night out with friends, Sixes is the perfect destination. Get booked in below…
