The cinema was amazing, an experience in itself! There was 3 floors but no lifts working :/ the actual screens are huge and plenty of space to get comfy. Hard Rock Cafe was £11 a drink and food was good but wouldn't rush back as waiters didn't seem to have much time for you unfortunately. Was very nice atmosphere with... More

Theres also a bar in the gallery and you can take drinks in with you. Who doesn't like a drink in comfy big seats watching the... More

This building is awesome..it is a combination of modern and old building and art. Nothing special from the outside and but step in and there you will find some cool place to hang out and shopping.

Love Printworks. This place is good whether you want to get some food or a drink. Friendly environment and well situated in Manchester. My favourite places in there are the Hardrock Cafe' (when is sunny, love sitting outside) and the Norvegian Blu pub.

This is a great place to eat and drink and its pretty much in the heart of the city. There is a good selection of bars to choose from. We only went for drinks but next time m,maybe something to eat as well.

We were going to see take that at the arena and chose to eat here beforehand, couldn't believe the choice of restaurants, so many. After the concert we did pass through again around 11pm and it was full of stag and hen dos and was quite rowdy

We came here as a group of 9 for my sisters hen party on Saturday night (25th April) we all had a lovely night, only managed to make it around a few places but it's so clean indoors with so many great places to go. We were greeted by friendly staff in every place we went. Will definitely come back.
