Just a box of a building but a decent concert venue, good pre-concert drinks further down the road at The Oxford or Big Hands.

The Manchester Academy is my favourite gig venue ever - even Academy 3 - been here so many times and have always dealt with pleasant and friendly staff, decent bars, good toilet facilities, easy access and the venues themselves are good - sure they're nothing special but you can get close to the bands, the crowd's friendly and it's easy to get to and from (and we usually have some pre-gig drinks in Big Hands)
Seen Eagles Of Death Metal, Marilyn Manson, Queens Of The Stone Age and Boots Electric here and got to meet (and cuddle) Joshua Homme, Jesse Hughes and Eden Galindo - excellent memories from an excellent venue :D Will be back as soon as I can!
