VIP Invitation to Manto's third birthday party in 1994, which was also the launch of Paradise Factory's 'Out On Vinyl' - a short lived cheesy house label aimed at Manchester's gay scene.

It looks like there was a free bar at the 'Out On Vinyl' office at 44 Canal Street, then the party went to Manto.

Tunes were supplies by Tim Lennox and Trannies With Attitude.

Manto changed hands a number of times before closing in 2013. It has recently been acquired by Orange Nation, 'the UK’s biggest gay club promotion company'.

Orange Nation is promising 'new bars, decor, new boothed areas, new sound, light and visual infrastructure and a fully retractable roof on the top floor.'

And awful music, I imagine.
