We can be easily found just off from Salford's main artery Chapel Street which can be accessed at it's furtherest from Victoria Station, Salford Central or Salford Crescent, and by following Oxford Road all the way south. Below is a selection of independent highlights in the area including other cultural venues and places to eat/drink.
Caustic Coastal's partner venue sits just beside us on James St. Check the website for an ongoing programme of events across music, art, performance and more. Also houses an artist-led BnB and 50 studios.
Located a few minutes walk further into Salford and backed by Peel Park it houses works concerned with the locality as well as a small local history library and cafe.
Hotbed Press sits a stones throw from us down Oldfield road and is a specialist centre for creative printmaking providing access to professional facilities with membership is open to all.
Deli Lama is based over on the corner of Bexley Square closely to where Oxford Road merges with Chapel Street. Serving a swathe of vegan and non-vegan delights with outdoor seating for when the sun chooses to shine. Perfectly independent.
Not exactly 'nearby' (let's call it a 30min walk if you've got the legs) the Lowry host a visual arts and theatre programme down over in the Quays. See website for what's on
If you're not at the Mill for it's late night events then The White Hotel is probably a worthwhile second choice. Located nearby Strangeways, and kinda secretive - tickets for events are usually up on skiddle, with posters dotted around town of what's on.
An Italian eatery round the corner for us where chapel st meets Oldfield road and with the friendliest of staff to meet the loveliest of food...perfect for a post-PV bite.
Located just round the corner from International 3, and our usual post-PV hangout, a decent pub with a theatre space upstairs.
The nearest actual local to us...kinda studenty, decent in summer with river views (and occasional weather to match).
A short walk from the gallery, a lovely small cafe with decent cake selections, alongside a small gallery space upstairs.
Studio and gallery on the hinterlands of Salford/Manchester river Irwell border nearer to town (not that close a walk). Check website for public programme.
