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!

A lot of variety with restaurants and bars for most young adults and older. Great layout of the building, where everyone can enjoy their experience.
