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!

I do enjoy visiting the printworks and as a student was a regular visitor to the establishments. There is always a good buzz on an evening. My only problems is that Old orleans was replaced with a harvester..not even in the same class!! I really feel a more upmarket steak house is needed. It's a shame that this place didn't manage to get TGIs and it went elsewhere

This gym WAS brilliant! in the quest to squeeze blood from a stone, they closed their "cheap" gym and transported the "cheap" members over to this gym at the same rate. So all the members paying £60+ have to put up with a ridiculously busy gym, a different customer base of people with no respect - outdated equipment - ineffective use of space - dirty and smelly toilets - generally awful!
the only positive is that the staff on the counter are great. They are friendly and positive and always engaging.

Houses a multiplex cinema and a number of chain restaurants and bars.
OK for a cheap evening but not the place to imptress or be seen.
