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.

The pubs, restaurants and cinema are fun, as it the bierkeller, but lacks the soul of the northern quarter, just a few minutes walk away. Worth visiting as a local but not a special destination if you're visiting the city.

It doesn't take too long to walk through the Printworks, unless you stop to take in a film or eat a meal, but it's an interesting little walk. It always strikes me like it's walking through a city street except that it's indoors. It's a strange atmosphere but one worth experiencing.

Had a quick look inside there on a early Saturday night. Whats all the fuss about. Very dissapointing Manchester. If you want to see how its really done pop down to Birminghams Broad st. and Brindley place areas and see how the Brummies enjoy themselves !!!
