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.

Disappointed that the summer menu is reduced, and does not have "vegi", "vegan" or "GF" on it. It is difficult to tell what is vegi, and hard to make a decision for food because of this. My friend actually accidentally ordered meat sausage because it was so unclear, and couldn't eat it.

would not advise booking on their website. I thought I had reserved a table for food but no automated confirmation email came through so I emailed Deaf Institute directly and received no reply. So I called the venue and they said they hadn't seen my email and tables are only available on gig nights yet nothing to say that on the booking system. Disappointing

Hi Rebecca, I'm really sorry to hear this! This is our first year using this booking system & have had this issue before when the building & system has been shut but the website is still taking booking, which is why there will have been no automatic confirmation email. As for the email to us not having been seen, I will chase this up as this should not have happened. The phone call I can only guess that the staff member was trying to convey that over summer we only open Monday-Thursday if there is an event on in the music hall. If you ever wish to try us again, whether it be for drinks, food, a gig or club night, please contact [email protected] so we can make it up! Sorry again, Sophie.

A great place to eat. Caters for carnivores and vegetarians - the burgers were superb. Cheap and tasty. Easy to order and quick to arrive. Would definitely recommend.
