Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The 16-year-old leisure scheme houses a state-of-the-art IMAX cinema, fully equipped gym and health club, complete with a 20m swimming pool, and 16 bars and restaurants. All in the heart of Manchester! From 6am until 3am, the scheme is alive with activity. Visitors can catch a spinning class before work, pop in for lunch, watch the latest blockbuster or meet friends for a drink after work. Thanks to the newly opened Exchange Square Metrolink stop and the recently renovated Manchester Victoria station visitors can be at the scheme in minutes. The Printworks has an excellent choice of bars, cafes and restaurants offering everything from light bites to three course meals, noodles to burgers, European cuisine or something from the deep south. Not only does The Printworks have a great offering for food and drink but it also has a stellar events calendar. Make The Printworks a one-stop shop for entertainment in Manchester!

“Everything under one roof”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

I had never been inside the Printworks before.I had been past it on
numerous occasions,when visiting manchester but this had been my first time.I was amazed that everything you could want is inside this place.We went to the cinema and later visited one of the many eating establishments for a meal afterwards.Now that i have been once,and seen what's there,i be more than likely returning in the nearest future.

“Tacky”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I've been to the Printworks a few times. The cinema is decent and there is great parking. The problem is that it has a ridiculous number of bars and clubs and the place just becomes an awful hub for anti-social behaviour from the early evening. There are bouncers everywhere, but it doesn't seem to have any impact on the people shouting, shoving and fighting.

“entourage club”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Don't go if you want a good night out. Club dirty toilets smelly at the start of the night.
Food offered not great. Show not brilliant. Feel ripped of for what the night cost.
Would not return.

“Avoid on weekends”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Not too bad here during the weekdays, but Thursday, Friday, Saturday evening, the last place i'd want to be. Lots of people shouting and fighting, not nice.
