This was a stop off on the Manchester April Tweed Ride. It was the Easter weekend so the vibe was bouncing. There was a swing band playing, people dancing and old vintage cars parked up on display. A wonderful stop on our Tweed Ride.

The print works is a good starting point for a night out in manchester. It has a good collection of bars including an irish bar, a massive bar (norweigen blue), TGIF which does great cocktails, tiger tiger (bar/club) & bierkeller (a german type beer place with steins). The collection of bars is good for all ages and a good mixture... More

A great place to visit, wether it be for a night out of just for food. Directly placed in the town centre near all major public transport links, everything you could wish for is under one roof. Never had a bad experience in any of the restaurants I have been to or the pubs. It can get a little rowdy... More

I love this place, from the outside it looks so old and it carries that through to the inside. Once inside you are amazed by how much is in there, there are a wide variety of restaurants, Italian, Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese and even pub grub. There are cheaper restaurants to big chains like the Hard Rock Cafe, I love... More

This place had become more popular than ever, always bustling however everything seems so expensive. Paying a premium to eat or drink all within the one place. We always used it as a stopping off point before a gig but will now be trying elsewhere witin the town centre.

The Printworks is definately worth paying a visit too there are excellent bars and restaurants without having to walk through the City, which is great if the weather is not too good

Visited this place whilst on a day trip to Manchester with my family. It's incredible to think that this was a printing house only a few years ago. Now it has cafes', bars and restaurants as well as a gym! Some of the original fittings and walkways are still visible. Anyone who has seen a newspaper printing press in operation... More
