It’s set to be a double celebration for Recardo Patrick on April 30 – not only is his stylish Hale venue starting a new live music night but it’s also his birthday. To mark the beginning of a new series of live performances at Recardo’s – the bar and club in Ashley Road – the Sweet Sensation frontman will be performing at 10pm, as part of an event which will include plenty of other sights and sounds to enjoy.
“I’m really excited about these new live music nights, as we all are,” said Recardo, who is a businessman and events organizer. “There’ll be stiltwalkers, firebreathers and I’ll be taking to the stage to sing on my birthday – it’s going to be a celebration all round.”
Recardo, who had a worldwide hit in 1979 with Sad Sweet Dreamer, will be the main attraction for the evening, which heralds the new series of live music performances on Saturdays at the venue. Visitors can start to immerse themselves in the atmosphere from early evening, with half price drinks available in the cocktail bar from 5pm to 9pm.
As the night starts to build up in the club, visitors will be entertained by stiltwalkers and firebreathers – who’ll be adding to the party atmosphere around the venue before Recardo’s appearance on stage. Following this live performance, there’ll be DJs entertaining the crowds with “The Real Housevibes of Cheshire” set of tunes.
Those looking to enjoy the vibes on the night can simply make their way there, although those booking up a table in advance are promised a VIP experience. The new live music nights are the latest addition at Recardo’s, which had its VIP launch night in October 2021.
This two-storey venue in the heart of Hale village has become well known for the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s classics that are played in its 200-capacity basement club, and for its stylish and welcoming atmosphere – not least with the floor-to- ceiling pink flowers that form the decor for its upstairs area.
It’s all headed up by Recardo, who has performed with icons such as Prince and Whitney Houston. His glitzy events of him have included the legendary ‘Boogie in Wonderland’ night at Heart Ibiza-with a similarly stylish approach taken at Recardo’s.
Known as a destination for a high-class night out, whether that’s a girly get together, a birthday party, or a romantic couples evening, the venue is popular with the Cheshire set and has plenty of instagrammable opportunities.
There’s an extensive drinks and cocktail list to choose from, which, alongside the classics, includes some innovative original creations, and has helped make it a popular late night drinking and dancing destination for South Manchester and Cheshire.
During early evenings on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, you can relax and enjoy a few drinks, served at your table, in the luxuriously decorated cocktail bar. On Friday and Saturday nights, the doors open to the spectacular basement club, where discerning party goers can dance the night away, entertained by top DJs.
These live music events taking place in the club are the start of another entertainment offering at Recardo’s, which will see bands performing at 10pm every Saturday.
