Taste The Diff’rence DJs are known for serving up the freshest hiphop in the city. As Oddest bar’s resident Friday night selectors, expect the best in hiphop, funk and soul from 9pm to 1.30am – one of the latest opening hours in Chorlton. The DJ collective have have warmed up audiences for some of the biggest touring acts in the hip hop genre from old schoolers like Sugarhill Gang via 1990s names like Blackalicious and Jeru the Damaja to modern rappers like Homeboy Sandman. They’re no strangers to filling floors at Chorlton’s Oddest bar, either, having brought their crates of beats to several all-day barbecues at the venue during the summer. It might be winter now but the famous Oddest terrace is heated during winter months. Blankets are supplied free too so it’s easy to cosy up and make new friends. Running alongside their weekly set is Oddest’s extended Friday happy hour, 5-10pm (as well as every Wednesday and Thursday from 5-9pm). Happy hour cocktails are £5/6 and include Beet Down (pictured), a seasonal blend of gin, vanilla, citrus and beet juice. Other must tries include the caipirinha-inspired Ramble (Chase rhubarb vodka, vanilla and Chambord), a new take on tequila in the shape of Turf War with hibiscus and Aperol and Locally Sauced made from gin, rhubarb and pink grapefruit and sweetened with honey. With Amstel lager for £3 a pint and house wine for £10, a good time is guaranteed.
