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

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.

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.
