MIMR Venues: The Castle Hotel, Manchester

From the first time I stepped in this small, Victorian-esque pub I knew it would be somewhere that I would certainly be coming back to again and again. This historical building has had its place in the heart of Manchester for over 200 years. It also has its story to tell with the History of Manchester music, John Peel famously interviewed Ian Curtis (Joy division) at the castle and on a more personal note, I spotted Johnny Marr (The Smiths) at a recent gig there too

After being closed for a short time, it was renovated and it’s rich heritage was brought back to life in 2010. The music hall is my favourite place, with its high ceilings and great acoustics, which has made it my favourite place to catch a gig, whether it be a local act or one from further afield. With a great selection of ales and bottled beers on offer, The Castle can do no wrong, go on give it a try
