About The Deaf Institute

The Deaf Institute is an amazing three-tier bar and live music venue that is a Manchester nightlife staple in the student hub of Oxford Road. Music magazine NME said of The Deaf Institute that “It looks like it's been dragged out of some ancient crevice of history before the invention of soulless corporate venues.” The quirky charm is what makes this venue so cool and current amongst the ever changing Manchester bar scene.

Thanks so much for a fab night. The staff on the night were friendly and welcoming and I wanted to thank Natalie for helping us to book and keeping me updated. We had a gig to go to so wanted somewhere to watch the footy beforehand and this was the perfect place. Thanks again.

I love Deaf. It has great food, tremendous atmosphere, and it's brilliant for gigs. The only reason I gave it 4 for atmosphere is that occasionally they get the music wrong, e.g. playing it too loud at a time when people are sat eating and chatting.

We booked tickets to see the excellent Mt Desolation at the Deaf Institute in Grosvenor Street, Manchester and decided to made an evening of it! Dinner, followed by live music from the hugely underrated Mt Desolation. Following an online table reservation, our expected arrival soon took us to a fine corner table in the principal ground floor hall of this sympathetically restored Rock Venue and a fine meal of homemade vegetarian based food was royally washed down with an excellent hand pulled pint (or two) of local craft ale. Could not have been bettered! And the evening's highlight of 1.5 hours of Mt Desolation's new album (seven years in the waiting!) coupled with a substantial chunk of their first album entertained until well into the evening. A fantastic evening, A fine characterful venue. An excellent meal. Highly recommended. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g187069-d1370501-r586355765-The_Deaf_Institute-Manchester_Greater_Manchester_England.html#
