Let’s have it Manchester! Get ready to make up for lost time. In line with Government guidelines, our venues will reopen for indoor dining and entertainment from 17th May. Please book in advance where possible. Find out how we’re reopening safely here.




We’re please to announce that we’ll be open for outdoor drinks and dining at Hard Rock Cafe and Wagamama from April 12th, and all venues will be open for indoor drinks, dining and entertainment from May 17th.

As we prepare to reopen our doors, we want to let you know about a few changes you’ll be seeing around Printworks. All of our new health and safety measures are in line with government guidelines and are here to keep you and your fellow guests safe.

One way system

Throughout Printworks, you’ll notice that we’ve introduced a one way system to ensure you have plenty of room to get where you’re going, without the worry of bumping into one other.

The directions are clearly signposted at each entrance and throughout the venue, so please make sure you stay in your lane.

Hand sanitiser stations

For your convenience, we’ve placed hand sanitiser dispensers around Printworks so you’re able to clean your hands before, during and after your visit.

These are clearly signposted, but if you’re unable to find one, please ask our security team to point you in the right direction.

Social distancing

One thing you’ll notice is social distancing stickers on the floor throughout the venues. Please respect others’ personal space and keep a reasonable distance so everyone can enjoy their visit safely.

Limited capacity

While we’re known for our lively and busy bars, as we reopen we will be operating at a reduced capacity for guests to ensure safe social distancing is possible. Our venues have limited standing spaces, social distancing between tables and stricter queues so our visitors can enjoy a drink or a meal while feeling as safe as possible.

This might mean that you’ll have a longer wait on your hands, and larger groups may be turned away if no notice is given. The best way to ensure you can be served or seated in a timely manner is to book a table in advance where possible.


Our venues are still accepting cash, but we would like to encourage visitors to pay by card or contactless where possible. Contactless payment is available on charges of up to £45 in most venues.

Regular cleaning

Each venue within Printworks is committed to providing a safe, clean environment for you to enjoy your visit. That’s why we’ve increased the frequency of cleaning public spaces, and have a strict disinfecting policy in place to ensure doors, machines, tables and anything else within our guests’ reach is safe and clean.

Our venues have individual opening dates. These are subject to change and each venue has its own safety procedure – please speak to a member of staff on arrival if you have any questions:
