The Castle Hotel
From the street, The Castle Hotel may look like your average boozer but venture past the bar into the back room and you’ll discover one of the most intimate venues in Manchester. The double-height ceiling perfectly frames the small stage that has played host to the likes of Mercury-Prize winners Alt-J and many other bands that have gone on to play much larger venues. You’re just as likely to stumble across a local folk night with everyone sat on the floor and fairy-lights strung above the stage as you are to discover a tightly packed crowd jumping around to guitar music.
