The Carlton Club is set in the beating heart of the Whalley Range community. It is where good people meet and where friendships old & new are formed over a drink, music & social shindigs.

We have a fully licensed bar serving local craft beers & cask ale alongside wines & spirits. There is a spacious main room with a stage where we hold numerous live music & club events as well as film showings, live comedy, art classes & spoken word evenings and more. We also have our stunning ‘Green Room’ where art exhibitions are hosted as well as more intimate gatherings.

Venture outside and you will see our peaceful outdoor community garden where you can enjoy a beer and chat with friends old & new and if you’re hungry then why not grab something from The Hip Hop Chip Shop Every Friday.

As well as providing a fine calendar of entertainment we also have an ever developing programme of well being & community focused offerings which includes pilates & yoga classes, ad-hoc dance classes, philosophy discussion groups and The Carlton Community Garden which meets every Tuesday from 11am & Saturday at 1.30pm and welcomes everyone to come along & get green fingers!

We are pleased to be dog friendly and welcome all 4 legged furry friends inside & outside at The Carlton Club. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times inside and are not allowed in the main room during any club nights

Children are also welcome at The Carlton Club however no under 12's after 8pm in main bar or Green Room.

What's On

We have a diverse range of events taking place midweek & at weekends with resident nights such as Home On The Range, One Tree Island, Your Disco Needs You, Club Solo, Racubah & Silence Of The Jams which has seen performances & appearances from the likes of Damo Suzuki (CAN), Afrodeutsche, Steve Davis, DJ Paulette, Danielle Moore (Crazy P), A Certain Ratio, John Metcalfe, Alex Paterson (The Orb), Justin Robertson, Caoilfhoinn Rose & many more.
