The Deaf Institute – your ultimate destination for an unforgettable night of excitement and live music magic! Experience a thrilling adventure across three fantastic floors, complete with three vibrant bars and not one, but two outdoor terraces nestled at the rear.

Step inside the historical gem, a building with a rich past dating back to 1878 when it was originally known as The Deaf Institute. After years of slumber, this iconic space had a new lease of life injected into it, over a decade ago, reimagining it to embrace its storied heritage. You’ll find them conveniently tucked away near the bustling Oxford Road, right at the heart of the vibrant Manchester Metropolitan University Campus.

Venture within to discover the three distinct havens: The Music Hall, The Lodge, and The Den – each a world of its own. Ascend to The Music Hall on the first floor, a captivating expanse where you’ll witness electrifying live performances and dance the night away beneath the mesmerising sway of a colossal mirror ball. For a more intimate encounter, step into The Lodge, an inviting space where you’ll be up close and personal with the talented artists gracing it’s stage. Seeking an exclusive hideaway? Look no further than The Den – an ideal setting for private celebrations, networking affairs, or indulging in the most exhilarating club nights.
