HOME Manchester, 2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester, M15 4FN – Visit Now
“To HOME, please” – the request now most likely to confuse a Mancunian taxi driver. Because capitals don’t come out in speech, do they? HOME, Manchester’s £25m cross-arts venue, is definitely worth a little linguistic confusion though. Boasting two theatres, five cinema screens, a large gallery, bar, cafe bar and bookshop, HOME Manchester is something of a destination venue in the city. Shaped like a wider, shinier version of its predecessor, Cornerhouse, HOME may not be the biggest of venues, but its programme of art, theatre and film stands out as highly innovative, challenging and unique.
HOME’s first floor café bar is to be recommended: with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, they do a mean line in pizzas, as well as classic mains, burgers and sandwiches, brunch, and Sunday roasts. It’s spacious yet cosy, with dark wooden tables, low slung lamps and a huge HOME sign, in case you forget you aren’t, in fact, at your own.
Services and FacilitiesWe’ve got three great spaces for food and drink. The ground floor bar includes an outdoor seating area for all those sunny Manchester days. The first floor restaurant offers a diverse menu including salads, pizzas and brunch options, as well as substantial mains. There’s a small bar area on the third floor where you can grab a drink before a film. -
