&made

Susie Stubbs

A small craft studio located inside Manchester Craft & Design Centre, &made sells a range of handmade gifts and goodies, including some very distinctive knitted cacti – honestly, you’ll love them (not least when you find out that their maker, Andrea Lord, was a former Chorlton & The Wheelies animator at Cosgrove Hall).

57 Thomas Street

57 Thomas Street is the third outlet belonging to Manchester’s best-known microbrewery, Marble Beers. Unlike the lavish decoration of the Grade II-listed Marble Arch (which also doubles up as a brewery) or the traditional pub layout of the Marble Beer House in Chorlton, this tiny Thomas Street digs has room for just two things: beer and food.
