The Printworks

This state-of-the-art entertainment complex is housed in what was formerly the largest printing facility in Europe.

Located in Manchester city centre, the Printworks is a huge Gotham City-type structure that is home to a number of bars, restaurants, a multiplex cinema, and a gym.

Businesses that were based here but have now closed include Norwegian Blue (now Yates), Papa G’s, Cafe Rouge (now Busaba), Henry J Beans, Old Orleans (now Harvester), Yum Yum, and Entourage.
