converted arches on Whitworth Street West, at the bottom end of
Deansgate house some of the most popular bars in the city centre.
Not to be mistaken with the Deansgate Area of town (a mile walk
away), 'The Locks', as they are better known locally, are famous
for their trendy yet somewhat pretentious bars and clubs, most being
owned by Manchester-based companies.
ten railway arches are home to five bars, one nightclub, and a comedy
club, all with a walkway and bridge hanging over the canal below.
The tram station at the G-Mex sits proudly above, whilst Deansgate
train station is just across the road. There's a handful of other
bars here well worth exploring, many dating back to the vibrant times
of the Hacienda, which once sat on the corner overlooking this spot.
Castlefield, long since the most popular area of town, is nextdoor
whilst Oxford Road Station is only a 5 minute walk away.
