Manchester235 is the entertainment jewel in the crown that is the Great Northern complex on Manchester's Deansgate; a luxury Las Vegas style gaming, dining, music, events and cocktail venue that is visually stunning and which delivers on all fronts. There is the James Martin Manchester restaurant on site (modern British), a private events space, a dedicated poker lounge (with regular weekly tournaments), gaming rooms – and a fabulous late night cocktail bar - The Vega Lounge. and the pop-up Carlsberg Sports bar where the World Cup games will be screened live.
