Hours of Operation
Joshua Brooks, on the corner of Charles and Princess Street, began life in 1993, and was quickly established as one of Manchester's prime nightspots. This is when the Chemical Brothers (then known as Dust Brothers) begantheir first residency at the club, and have gone on to become global superstars. Copious amounts of upcoming and established DJs and bands have since played within the basement's bricked walls.
The last few years have seen a lot of change at the venue, having had a complete refurb and brand new soundsystem installed as well as a whole host of clubnights joining, meaning there will be something on every night of the week, catering for all musical tastes.
We are the current 'Best Venue' in the Manchester Evening News and have also been nominated as 'Best Small Club' in DJmag in the last few years.
Incase you were wondering, the name "Joshua Brooks" derives from a Victorian novel called The Manchester Man, written by Mrs G. Linnaeus Banks in 1876 (google it).
This was one of the first pubs I visited in England during my recent visit (7/2014). Found it to be a great little space with plenty of seating. Has a room downstairs for parties and such and a great little terrace above the River Medlock.
My pie was excellent, my cask ales were top notch and overall it was a great visit. I would recommend making a visit to Joshua Brooks during any visit to Manchester.
