  • It's part of history. A must. Closed but the external building has been done up for those Smith like photos.
  • A wonderful place with a great past, present and future! Friendly people who care for arts, sports, kids and community! + the Smiths! Amazing!
  • 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!
  • An essential stop off point on a tour of Manchester if you are into indie music/The Smiths.
  • 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
