It has 2 of Manchester’s popular meeting places in the Wave Bar and Bar-Rogue, providing food all day at affordable prices, with great music and DJs.

The Britannia Hotel dates back to 1858, when the building was opened as the world’s original cash and carry store. It went on to become the cotton industry’s most famous warehouse.
