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.

We had tickets for a gig which came with a voucher for a burger and fries with a drink for a set price. The voucher stated the drink could be either a pint of the 'house lager, cider or selected ales'. However we were informed at the bar that only the lager and cider were on the deal, meaning we couldnt have an ale. This was false advertising and as someone who does not drink lager or cider was very disapointing. Poor form indeed.

Hello George, Sorry about this i'm going to look in to this now to see if we can take off the ale on offer as we don't have any on cask at the moment. I hope this didn't ruin your evening with us too much and we do hope to see you again soon

We visited the bar/restaurant on Saturday evening. Booked a table for 8pm. It wasn't packed during the 2 hours we stayed. Food is ordered and paid for at the bar. Didn't take too long to come. Plenty of vegan choices on the menu. Choices include burger, hot dog, Mac n cheese, Thai curry, fries, brownie with ice cream. Tasty junk food. Very filling portions. Would go again - the service and music was great.

Came in veganuary and it was so good we keep coming back, love vegan hangover specials. Vegan jerk curry was amazing as was the Jambalaya, only one complaint, bit it's a big one, why can't the Philly steak sandwich with gravy not be on the menu permanent, why why why why why why

Hello Daniel, thank you for the feedback so glad you like our food and keep coming back! I will pass over this suggestion to our head chef to see if we can make the philly 'cheese' steak a permeant item on the main menu or to make more of an appearance on our specials boards. hopefully see you soon
