Located in a 19th century lock keepers cottage lovingly restored to its former glory (and then some) Lock 91 is tucked away at the end of Deansgate Locks, up Century Street and is one of Manchester’s little gems.

As you would expect from a cottage, Lock 91 is full of beautiful features and has a multitude of rooms that are perfect for all types of events such as birthday celebrations, product launches, networking events, wedding receptions and much more. With numerous bars, a canal side terrace, HD projectors with screens and a sound system that will take care of all your musical entertainment needs this truly is one of the most exclusive and secluded private hire spaces in Manchester.

Over the 3 floors Lock 91 serve an extensive selection of innovative cocktails, sharers, draught larger, real ales, cider a varied bottle range and a elegant selection of wines.

Lock 91 encourage everyone to sit long, talk lots and laugh often and we agree as there is no place quite like this, in fact you could call it home, find out for yourself.

Had a great party here for my 40th. The venue is great. I love the way they have the outside terrace (in the basement room) and its really relaxed, almost like a house party. The staff are fabulous and the drinks are really fairly priced. Had a really memorable time, thanks Lock 91!! Visited Lock 91 on 2016-04-30

Went to Lock 91 for the first time and it was a really good venue. The staff are absolutely lovely and is definitely a place that I would go again. Not what I expected it to be, but in a very positive way!
