Owner description: 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!

Reviewed October 30, 2012

We visited whilst on short few days shopping, sightseeing trip, had a meal in one of the many restaurants in there, and even went to see Skyfall the new James Bond movie just to ease aching feet.

An amazing transformation of the former Daily Mirror building and film set for Cracker. Bars ,restaurants and cinema give this mini entertainment mall a great feel from Hard Rock Cafe to Tiger Tiger. From Norwegian Blue to the wonderful Old Orleans restaurant this is a great way to spend an evening with out stepping outside. Watch a film in the Odeon Cinema and then take your pick of the eateries before finishing with a nightcap or two or more in any of the bars or nightclubs.

“Some good bars”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

A part of Manchester, near Victoria Station, under one roof for drinks and eating. No shops here, but a large cinema. Good access from train, bus and trams.
