What they say:
Taking over the Cuban Cafe site on Port Street, Stage & Radio will be homage to the musical roots of this legendary site which was once a nexus for live music in Manchester. Spread over three floors, this new establishment will be basement bar, casual restaurant and live gig venue all in one where you can tuck into New York pizza and see the latest musical talent.
What we say:
It's about time the Cuban Cafe got a little face lift; and all in the name of paying tribute to the musical heritage of the very building? Well, absolutely. A born party joint, the new Stage & Radio sets the stage for informal dining, drinking and dancing in the heart of Manchester's most vibrant district. We're looking forward to see how these guys fair at keeping to the rough and gritty style of this late night nook.
