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

On a visit to Manchester for a few days I went to the Printworks knowing nothing about it and was I disappointed! Instead of creating at least something of interest about its lengthy past, it's just some windy wide alleys selling a load of junk food! I do hope that people thinking of eating here know there are mirirads of... More

a noisy overcrowded and over priced place to visit , the only advantages are that all the places you need to visit are all in the same location , at weekends they frequently have security guards on the public walkway entrances who sometimes physically stop people passing through and attempt to search any bags they are carrying , this alone...

The Printworks is a mixture of bars, clubs and entertainment options. There are quiet bars, loud, busy and rowdy clubs and also a cinema complex. If you go at the right time then the Printworks is an ideal place for an 'all-in-one' day or evening out! You can eat, drink then go catch a movie without walking around the whole... More

Entourage club located at printworks is a complete shaft and rip-off. Went on thursday january 1st due to recommendation. Was charged cover fee and advised that they would open until 4am. However was surprised to be closed at 1am without any explanation. No credit cards accepted either. Only cash. Upon leaving, no explanation was given about why they closed early.... More
