When it comes to public votes, people are inherently stupid. Just look at the recent Top 100 DJs, a list made of DJs mostly devoid of talent who play the most boring, simplistic music around. And today another public vote, this time for Manchester’s top nightclubs to be exact, and Salford’s Islington Mill has been voted as the best nightclub in Manchester according to ticket website Skiddle.
There are some notable omissions from the list including the The Warehouse Project, which isn’t strictly a club, Sankeys is also missing but again that might just be down to its less then friendly door staff, and The Albert Hall is also missing, but again, that might be down to the fact its a venue and not necessarily a club. Though it could be argued the Islington Mill isn’t strictly a club and more of a live venue. And if we’re being super picky, Salford isn’t even in Manchester, and therefore Islington Mill shouldn’t even be in the list at all. But, again, that’s us just playing devil advocate.
Elsewhere, the number two spot went to the excellent Soup Kitchen which offers live shows, international DJs, and food across two floors. In third place is Sound Control, which is a proper club over 3 floors with a capacity of 500 people. And forth spot goes to Bowlers, which the last time we checked is an events space that hosts everything from Star Wars conventions to old-school dance nights. Again, it’s definitely not a nightclub, and certainly not a place we’d have voted in our Top 10.
So, yeah, when it comes to public votes, people are inherently stupid.
Skiddle’s top 10 clubs in Manchester as voted by the public are as follows:
1. ISLINGTON MILL
2. SOUP KITCHEN
3. SOUND CONTROL
4. BOWLERS EXHIBITION CENTRE
