One of the latest additions to Manchester’s cabaret & entertainment bar scene. Centre State is famous for trannies with attitude, nostalgia and musical theatre.




  1. Offensive act

    “At first I thought what a lovely bar, towards the end of the night I was horrified at the racist and discriminative attitude of the drag queen. Not only at her behavior and defensiveness - hurling across the bar "if you lesbians have got an issue with my act get out", but at her extremely offensive act. She wore a burka, stated lines that were discriminating towards ethic minorities (I haven't got it in me to explain the scale if the offensiveness), many people within the bar exchanged perturbed glances, feeling awkward at this kind if set in the 21st century. Being with two other "lesbians" we got shouted at and absurd by the aggressive drag queen. The manager apologised for the act and stated he can't do anything about it as the act gets him customers. He also said that the act was drunk after for long days so there was nothing he could do to stop the aggressiveness. Shocked and stunned a bar like this exists in the Gay village in the 21st century.“

  2. Can't make my mind up.

    “I don't know what to say. I enjoyed the venue and I can't fault the bar staff at all. Unfortunately I observed the most unfriendly drag queen I have ever come across any where ever. Very aggressive towards people. Not with me I just took a back bench and tried to have a good time but I felt very uncomfortable watching how aggressive this drag act was towards people trying to have a good time on the Karaoke or just trying to dance but if anything didn't go her way she was rude!!!. Horrible horrible ghastly person. I couldn't watch any more how rude she was to people (in an unfun way) I crossed the road to New York New York where people were treat better. I think it was Emma Rhoids. First time I came across her and hopefully we will never cross paths again. Not going back there. All my stars are for everything else if she wasn't there.“
