  • Fully expected to rock up to this iconic frontage, grab a few pictures & then head into town. Instead, several lovely volunteers said, 'Oh, why don't you come in & find out what we're all about?' We h...  more »
  • I found myself in Manchester on the day of the concert of Morrissey, and for this reason the club was open and sold many gadgets to Moz and the photo opportunities for the whole club. Is only open on Saturdays of every month and it's free. If you are in Manchester and you are a fan of the Smiths you must go there, it deserves! Place where it was filmed the video "Stop me if you think you've heard this before" Yes can easily reach by bus

  • If you are a fan of The Smiths, then this is definitely the place to visit. The Salford Lads Club is the iconic location of where the LP sleeve photo of The Queen Is Dead was taken. Very friendly atmosphere always at least one Smiths fan there and the "Smiths Shrine" inside is very good also!
  • Went to the pop up shop when Morrissey was in town. The Smiths room is fantastic, but it was actually the local people and the history of the club I was really impressed with. Very welcoming
  • Brilliant memorabilia site for smiths fans
  • Not really for women my son and partner found it ok
  • A morrissey tribute destination
