Overview
More
The 16-year-old leisure scheme houses a state-of-the-art IMAX cinema, fully equipped gym and health club, complete with a 20m swimming pool, and 16 bars and restaurants. All in the heart of Manchester! From 6am until 3am, the scheme is alive with activity. Visitors can catch a spinning class before work, pop in for lunch, watch the latest blockbuster or meet friends for a drink after work. Thanks to the newly opened Exchange Square Metrolink stop and the recently renovated Manchester Victoria station visitors can be at the scheme in minutes. The Printworks has an excellent choice of bars, cafes and restaurants offering everything from light bites to three course meals, noodles to burgers, European cuisine or something from the deep south. Not only does The Printworks have a great offering for food and drink but it also has a stellar events calendar. Make The Printworks a one-stop shop for entertainment in Manchester!

There is plenty of choice for people who are looking for a meal or going to the cinema to get out of the cold wet weather. We ate at Yates and had a very nice meal for a very reasonable price.

There are lots of things to see and do in the print works without doubt. We do use it occasionally but it is full of chain restaurants, identical pubs and a fairly standard cinema. It is good that is close to the train station and...More

If you like a chain restaurant this place will be right up your street. The space is great and provides lots of choice but it would be nice to see some independents too.More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit. Bierkeller is always a hoot and being undercover in Manchester is a must...too much rain! Hope to see you here again soon.

This place is a closed, beautifully designed building that hosts many restaurants & bars, in addition to Vue Cinema. It's a nice place to hang around with friends, share a meal and watch a movie. Quite during the day, but gets busy & noisy at...More

Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have some new tenants opening soon where you should be able to go for a quiet pint! Waxy O'Connor's, Wetherspoons or Bierkeller happy hour (top floor) are good bets too! Thank you.

Having been a regular customer when the cinema was run by Odeon, I was rather surprised when I went this week for the first time since the venue has been taken over by Vue. The place just looks totally bare. Previously there were video games...More

The building itself is far more interesting than the cinema and the bars and the eateries inside. There are better ways to waste my life. Memorabilia in the Hard Rock Cafe for the aficionados.
