Northern Quarter Venue 33 Oldham Street Arrives

The music-inspired venue celebrates all things Manchester


Set on possibly the coolest road in the city, 33 Oldham Street promises to be a mashup of all things Manchester.

The brains behind the new venture are Andy Smith, one of the founders of Kendal Calling, Off the Record and Bluedot festivals, and Jason McGuire of Manchester Coffee.

Forget fads and fancy concepts, the pair are bringing together everything they love about Manchester and rolling it into one wonderfully Manc venue.

Pop in for a coffee and don’t be surprised if you find yourself staying until sundown for a drink and some live music. With Smith at the helm, it’s no surprise that 33 Oldham Street will be all about celebrating Manchesters thriving music scene.

Get ready to take your listening experience to the next level as the venue is home to some of the world’s best speakers, making their weekly DJ sessions that much better. Look out for album listening parties and artist takeovers there as well.

Table service across all floors lets you order and pay for food and drink through a phone app, so it’s even easier to lose yourself in the venue.

This mini-Manchester will be a space fit for, well, almost everything it seems. 33 Oldham Street will be set across 4 floors with each area of the super-functional space boasting something different depending on whether you visit during the day or night.


On the ground floor will be a coffee shop so you can grab a flat white and a snack in the daytime or sip on a G&T when it’s transformed into a sleek cocktail bar in the evening. The first floor takes inspiration from Tokyo’s jazz cafes and vinyl bar and is a comfy lounge workspace by day and a listening room and bar after dark. The big draw though, quite literally, is 33 Oldham Street’s roof terrace which is set to be the largest in the Northern Quarter – but you’ll have to wait until 2019 for this.




Plans are still tightly under wraps at the moment, but here’s a teaser video to wet our appetites. 


We can’t wait to check out 33 Oldham Street when it opens this autumn!
