  • Love this place. Feels welcoming with there being no doors and it being open to the street. The old fixtures of the building have been retained (it used be a printworks...) and that mixed with the quality refurbishment gives it a premium feel. Also it is right on the Metrolink route so there is great access.
  • Good place to visit to eat and drink close to Victoria train station. Cinema is good too. Does get very busy at weekends.
  • Lots of places to eat and drink all under one roof, including Hard Rock Cafe, Nando’s, and Frankie & Benny’s. There’s also a VUE cinema which often offers discounted ticket prices during the week. The Printworks can become very busy during the weekends and during large sporting events as there are also some sports bars inside, so if you’re only after a quiet meal/drink, visiting during the week would be more preferable.
  • 1st visit to Peachy Keen' s World Cafe and was most impressed. Great food from an wide variety of dishes.
  • A nice cinema (Vue) and plenty of options for food and drink. Served well by public transport and has a vibrant nightlife. Parking is via a multi-storey nearby but that is expensive. Opposite the Arndale Centre for those who want indoor shopping.
