Nothing special about this place during the day. Probably used more as a cut through than a place to visit. Plenty of choices for food. I would imagine this place comes alive at night. But with the usual numb nuts that drink far in excess of what's reasonable.

Amazing night out,everything you need in one place from a range of bars,to cinema to restaurants.even more fun and wonderful when printworks organise and put on events such as dance competitions, starwars day , and most of all the zombie walks. Best place in Manchester :) looking forward to my next visit

Came up to see my son, and go see a gig, so we stopped to eat here first, it had a great buzz, with a giant Christmas tree, and Christmas music. Really feel a friendly place and great places to eat, it the place I would go everytime.

Visited the Printworks with family and friends for night out in Manchester whilst visiting from overseas. Lively drinking and eating spot. Great music, live and otherwise. Very safe feeling with security on all bars. Well worth a visit.

The Printworks of Manchester claims to be a 24 hour space, in all honesty this isn't entirely true as the prime influx of people arrive in the late afternoon to evening. The area itself is very limited and riddled with highstreet brands, big names that control our wallets dont appeal to me and the Printworks fails to equate the difference... More

A suprising nisch where you can have a pint of ale and avoid the chilli and rainy weather of the North :) cheers mate.

If you want to go to the cinema then this is more than adequate. Anything else, the attraction is very limited as it is more or less bars and restaurants. We rarely stay late and it is not the kind of place that would encourage you to stay unless you are of a certain age or want to get "leathered".

Decent indoor (sheltered!!) leisure complex right in the centre of Manchester. Major anchors are Odeon cinema and Hard Rock Cafe, along with Tiger Tiger. A few chain restaurants (Cafe Rouge, Prezzo, Chiquitos) and some bars. Be warned though late on Friday and Saturday nights it will be crawling with people absolute smashed!

You won't be surprised by any of the national chains here but it still attracts huge numbers of young people especially at the weekend. It provides the services that they want even if its not to everyone's taste.
