Once upon a time, two musicians named Matt & Phred decided to open a Jazz Club. In 2010, some years after both musicians had left for pastures new, the Turner family took over the little back street Jazz Club and have been enjoying meeting musicians and guests from all over the world ever since. The club has now firmly established itself as one of Manchester city-centre’s most dearly loved live music venues, with an emphasis on creating an atmosphere people from different backgrounds and ages can all enjoy as one.

The John Rylands Library is a late-Victorian neo-Gothic building on Deansgate in Manchester, England. The main reading room on the first floor, 30 feet above the ground and 12 feet from all four boundaries, was noted for the pleasant contrast between the 'sullen roar' of Manchester and the 'internal cloister quietude of Rylands'.

The Royal Exchange is a grade II listed building. The complex includes the Royal Exchange Theatre and the Royal Exchange Shopping Centre. The exchange has four storeys and two attic storeys built on a rectangular plan in Portland stone. It was designed in the Classical style. The theatre features a seven-sided steel and glass module that squats within the building's Great Hall. It is a pure theatre in the round in which the stage area is surrounded on all sides, and above, by seating. Its unique design conceived by Richard Negri of the Wimbledon School of Art is intended to create a vivid and immediate relationship between actors and audiences. It is worth visiting it even if you don't go to a theatre play :)

The gallery has fine art collection consisting of more than 2,000 oil paintings, 3,000 watercolours and drawings, 250 sculptures, 90 miniatures and around 1,000 prints. It owns more than 13,000 decorative art objects including ceramics, glass, enamels, furniture, metalwork, arms and armour, wallpapers, dolls houses and related items. Manchester Art Gallery is strongest in its collection of Victorian art, especially that of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and Victorian decorative arts. The gallery houses several works by the French impressionist, Pierre Adolphe Valette, who painted and taught in Manchester in the early years of the 20th century; some of his scenes of foggy Manchester streets and canals are displayed. A Cézanne hangs in the same room, showing the similarity in treatment and subject between his misty French river bridge and Valette's bridge in a pre-Clean Air Act Mancunian fog. L. S. Lowry was one of Valette's students and the influence on Lowry of impressionism can be seen at the gallery, where paintings by the two artists hang together. The museum houses The Picnic (1908), a work by the British Impressionist painter Wynford Dewhurst, who was born in Manchester. Annie Swynnerton who was born in Hulme is represented in the collection by 16 paintings and her contemporary at the Manchester School of Art, Susan Dacre by 17 paintings. As well as paintings the museum holds collections of glass, silverware and furniture, including four pieces by the Victorian architect and designer William Burges.
