Pubs & Bars in The Printworks Manchester, The Corn Exchange & The Millennium Quarter

The Printworks entertainment complex and the surrounding area is one of the most popular night spots in Manchester city centre.

Located around Exchange Square and labelled 'The Millennium Quarter' following its rebuild after the 1996 IRA bomb destroyed many of the original buildings, it's now an area full of pubs, bars, restaurants and designer stores, many inside the newly refurbished Corn Exchange building.

The main attraction is The Printworks itself, a converted newspaper printers packed with large bars, huge night clubs, chain restaurants and a giant IMAX cinema.

With over 150,000 revellers visiting the Printworks each week, it's one of the most vibrant areas in Manchester.

For those looking for something different to the chain bars in The Printworks, the nearby pubs in the Old Shambles, dating back to the 14th Century, offer a refreshing alternative, as do the cocktail bars amongst the designer stores.

With the Manchester Arena, National Football Museum and Royal Exchange Theatre just across the road, there's no better place to meet up for a drink.
