Printworks, Manchester

Printworks as the name suggests would bring to your mind words such as ‘newspapers’ , ‘journalism’, ‘magazines’ etc.  At least, that is what I thought Printworks was all about until I was told that it is everything but ‘print’. It is one of the leading Entertainment arcades. It hosts inside its beautiful walls a number of pubs and eateries as well as a gaming centre and the Odeon movie theatre. after the shutting down of the newsprint site which it actually hosted and followed by the Manchester bombings; Printworks was re-opened in 2000 and can be defined as a ‘one place stop’ for pubs, eateries, movies and games.

Located at the intersection of Withy Grove and Corporation Street Manchester, this is how the area looks like from the Printworks in the evening. Towards the left of the frame, ‘Next’ is a beautiful shop which is part of the Manchester Arndale. Towards the right is the National Football Museum , Cheetham School of music and Cheetham Library, The Manchester Arena and the very famous Victoria Station.

On entering Printworks you are bound to be blinded by the glitzy and glamorous sign boards of the various pubs and eateries. You get a range of cuisines here -Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican- you name it and you have it.

Along with proper restaurants, you also have various pubs and cafe’s like Walkabout, Waxy O Connors, Tiger Tiger, Hard Rock.

As you cross the Pump Yard, three distinct objects would catch your attention. this huge Graffiti, A Pretty snail (below) which I believe looks really dreamy-eyed and  a car ride.

FOOD

This is a collage of the map of Printwoks and also some of the big names of eateries and restaurants that are found here. This place has such varieties that you would never have to worry about food being in your budget. Additionally, if you are planning to go pub hopping, then this place is a must as you have various different pubs under one roof.

At the end of this post, I am leaving a little bit of my own recommendations.

1. Try out the eateries and pubs. If you want a wonderful buffet then you can check out Peachy Keens. (https://trekkersoftheeast.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/peachy-keens/)

2. Try the Car Ride. 

3. You can try your luck at the Gaming Zone (although I was not that lucky this time 😛 )

4. Keep a lookout at the official website of Printworks for amazing, offers, competitions and events at http://www.theprintworks.com/the_place/events/search/25/01/2016/

5. Endless Photographs

6. Great Time with Friends and Families.

Do comment and let me know if you have been to the Printworks and if you have any favourites in this arcade. Thanks 🙂

    1. Yes. It also has a small gaming centre and a cinema. So movies, games, pubs and restaurants all taken care of in the same place. In fact, right across the road from Printworks you have Manchester Arndale a huge shopping arcade with over 400 stores. That takes care of a whole day worth visiting the city I guess 🙂
