An amazing place, everything you want under one roof!

Wow what can I say, so many places to eat. We decided to watch the Amy Winehouse film at the odeon, a fabulous cinema. If in manchester visit the print works it's great!

Busy, busy, busy. This place i has been literally taken over by the yonug of Manchester and those visiting. Having said that the cinema is great and well worth a visit. It can look shabby and not very well cared for.

As per, walking through the Print Works is probably the best thing you can do - don't stop, definitely don't buy anything. Unfortunately and only because of ease with two visiting Niece's and the rain - I ended up in The Printworks yesterday afternoon. First stop, an empty Hard Rock Cafe to which we were told that we would have... More

Lots of pubs, clubs, and places to eat. Also a cinema. Very handy and no need to go anywhere else if in groups for night/day out.

Although this places comes across a quite dark inside. There's a good selection of food &'drinking places along with the cinema. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't overly crowded.

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

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. Well for me it is a must to go when you're in Manchester if you're a Hard Rock Collectors because you will find the... More
