Before you start shouting “You are a liar, actress” at us, let’s get one thing clear: this is not a drill. There really is a bar in Manchester hosting weekly Love Island screenings, and the pornstar martinis are bottomless. In fact, so is the prosecco, and the frozen strawberry daiquiris, and the bellinis… and so on and so forth. Northern Quarter favourites The Shack have hit upon the brilliant ruse to host drama-filled screenings every Wednesday night, so if you’re looking to elevate your Love Island nights, look no further.
You’re going to need to book fairly swiftly to get a space at these sessions, but once you’re booked in, there’s 90 minutes of cocktails, sharing platters, and island drama to enjoy. (Yes, the drama is in fact guaranteed – have you not watched Love Island before?) Those sharing platters will keep you munching away on fries, sliders, and wraps as the latest villa shenanigans unfold, and there are two drinks packages available – for £20pp, you’ve got the choice of prosecco, mimosas, bellinis, beers, and cider, whilst the £25pp option is where you’ll find the bottomless pornstar martinis and frozen strawberry daiquiris.
Booking can be sorted via The Shack’s website, with three slots available for the Wednesday evenings (don’t worry, they all overlap with the show, so no-one’s missing out). Short of actually being a fly on the wall of Casa Amor, we reckon this is the best way to watch Love Island you’ll find. After all, shouldn’t an event that holds the nation’s attention hostage every summer be treated with pizzazz?
