Located in a 19th century lock keepers cottage lovingly restored to its former glory (and then some) Lock 91 is tucked away at the end of Deansgate Locks, up Century Street and is one of Manchester's little gems. As you would expect from a cottage, Lock 91 is full of beautiful features and has a multitude of rooms that are perfect for all types of events such as birthday celebrations, product launches, networking events, wedding receptions and much more. With numerous bars, a canal side terrace, HD projectors with screens and a sound system that will take care of all your musical entertainment needs this truly is one of the most exclusive and secluded private hire spaces in Manchester. Over the 3 floors Lock 91 serve an extensive selection of innovative cocktails, sharers, draught larger, ales, cider a varied bottle range and a elegant selection of wines. Entertainment is at the forefront of Lock 91's offerings from Jack's Room, where you can discover the perfectly presented pool table, darts board and a smoking balcony, live music every Tuesday evening and bi-weekly quiz's there is always something going on down at the local the locks. Check out their event listings for future events. Lock 91 encourage everyone to sit long, talk lots and laugh often and we agree as there is no place quite like this, in fact you could call it home, find out for yourself.
