Day Twelve: Birmingham & Manchester

Posted on Friday, August 6th, 2004

Dave!Continuing north, we stopped at the nicely appointed Hard Rock Cafe Birmingham and then onward to our last stops for the day at Manchester. While we had both visited these cafes on previous occasions, the new Manchester Hard Rock Casino would be new. As it turns out, it's very much like London's casino (more like a private gaming room than anything Vegas has to offer), but a bit larger with some video games tossed in the mix...

HR Manchester Casino

The entrance doesn't look like much, but it is perfectly located in the trendy Printworks complex which was really hopping this Friday night. Tomorrow our run comes to an end, with final stops in Leeds and Nottingham.

    I went past the Manchester Hard Rock yesterday. I didn’t intend to, but there were some problems with the trams which meant I had to get off a few stops earlier and walk.

    I would have gone in but I was already late so I didn’t have time. I’ve been in the Printworks before, and the Triangle and Urbis on the other side of the street, and they’re both very interesting to look at. I really like Manchester city centre.

    Just to let you know that the Hard Rock Casino in Manchester has now closed, due to poor levels of trading.

    The casino was nice (if a bit boring compared to Vegas or Atlantic City offerings) so I am saddened to hear it couldn’t make a go of it… but the CAFE in Manchester is gold, so I am relieved that it’s still open! :-)
