There used to be shops and warehouses here dealing in textiles some years ago. Now there are offices, vintage shops, pubs and bars. The garment warehouses have shifted, offices have taken over. I used to visit to look for old CDs one upon a time, now you can look for vinyl since they came back in fashion. Look a little carefully and you will see buildings modelled on New York. Captain America: The First Avenger was shot here.

Running through the heart of the Northern Quarter, Oldham Street is the opposite of Market Street, in a good way. When I was at school, Piccadilly Records was the place to get your concert tickets and today it's a great place to seek out vinyl. There's a big Carhartt and another across the road. The cafés and bars are the highlight, Night and Day is very popular, I had a really good coffee and cake at The Fig and Sparrow. Gullivers (music and comedy) and Matt and Phred's (Jazz) are well known venues. The area can seem a bit run down in the cold light of day, with tagging on the buildings etc but it's definitely well worth visiting.

Just a regular street. Some nice buildings but except that I can't see anything special about it. xd

I had seen that Oldham Street was a destination worth looking at after seeing it being reviewed on here. It’s a long long road with numerous pieces of interesting street art, worth a look if you have the time,

Oldham Street affords a fascinating stroll along a mix of trendy bars and restaurants, small boutique shops, and yawning gaps where shops or even buildings used to be. The further one gets from Piccadilly Gardens the more decrepit it becomes with an entire burnt out building followed by a large bomb site. And yet at the other end it also features dining venues such as Crafty Pig and coffee bars such as the Fig & Sparrow of the utmost trendiness. But almost opposite these is a downmarket fish and chips shop with much of the exterior lettering especially for the words ‘fresh’ and ‘produce’ falling into the pavement. Midway outside a Cass Art shop Oldham Street demonstrates it has more than its fair share of down and outs. Yet this colourful street is itself both up and down but certainly not out.
