Deaf Institute

Just around the corner from Manchester Metropolitan University, Deaf Institute comes from the people behind Gorilla, and shares much of its distinct features.

And in case you were wondering, yes, the venue got its name as the grade II-listed building was indeed previously used as an institute for the deaf.

Its three tiers include a Ground Floor Cafe Bar, a Basement Bar and Upstairs Music Hall. Gigs are predominantly held in the Music Hall, a venue with a capacity of 260 people. However, on club nights it can hold as many as 500.

And if you catching the newest acts around, or even don’t mind performing yourself, Deaf Institute hosts an open mic night every Sunday.
