Great venue. Handy for the city centre. Good play as per Peter James's usual standard. Only complaint was that it was far too hot and I was struggling to stay awake.

Due to air conditioning being faulty, we suffered the first half of a show in a hot, stuffy, airless auditorium.

If you're looking for a steakhouse Hawksmoor and Gaucho are both five minutes up Deansgate from the Opera House. They are both a bit pricey but fantastic steaks. My favourite is Gaucho.
