Manchester has one of the most vibrant nightlife scenes and aggressive nighttime economy campaigns in in the UK.

They also have “night mayor.”

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority wants Manchester to be “one of the best places in the world to go out, stay out, and run a business between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.”
