Open until 4am so great place to have a final drink (or few) for the night. Not the cheapest but around the average prices for the Northern Quarter. Staff are very friendly and helpful and able to recommend drinks and other places around.

They aren't free pool tables. The cue tips are non existent and there's no chalk. Be fine if the tables were free but they're charging a hefty £5 per hour. Poor.

Went here to play pool. The service was good and pool tables great. Unfortunately the beer selection was quite poor for a Manchester venue. But we did enjoy the pool. Wouldn't go here for anything else!
