Virtual Time Travel: The Google Maps Virtual Tour of Manchester’s Iconic Ruby Lounge

Our Google Trusted Photographer took a nightclub virtual tour of one of the UK’s best indie and rock clubs.

Here’s the Google Maps virtual tour we produced for The Ruby Lounge in Manchester:

Ah, The Ruby Lounge. If you’ve ever been a night owl in Manchester or a lover of the indie music scene, then you’ll know just how special this club was. With its eclectic clientele, and a rich history of hosting some of the most electric live music nights, The Ruby Lounge was not just a nightclub – it was an institution. Sadly, like all good things, it had to come to an end.

But what if I told you that you could visit this iconic club one more time? Thanks to a Google Maps virtual tour, you can now do just that. Whether you’re a past regular looking to relive some memories or a curious soul wanting to see what all the fuss was about, this nightclub virtual tour is your portal to one of Manchester’s most cherished venues.

Navigating the Nightclub Virtual Tour

Inside the Google Maps virtual tour above, you can navigate The Ruby Lounge just like you would any other location on the platform. Click and drag to look around, zoom in on interesting details, or follow the arrows to “walk” through different sections of the club.

A Tribute to The Ruby Lounge

While a virtual tour can’t bring back the euphoria of a night at The Ruby Lounge, it’s a fitting tribute to a place that meant so much to so many. It’s a testament to Manchester’s vibrant nightlife, the ever-evolving music scene, and the community that keeps these memories alive.

For those who never had the chance to visit, this Google Maps virtual tour offers a glimpse into a bygone era—a time and place that will forever remain etched in the annals of Manchester’s cultural history. So, lace up those dancing shoes and step inside The Ruby Lounge one last time. The music’s still playing.
