Description

Best Fun Time Party Bar 2014 - DesignMyNight Awards

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.

With three different bars The Deaf Institute thrives with its diversity and different spaces, offering people the chance to drink where they feel comfortable. The basement bar is dark and plush, a place to lounge around sipping cocktails all evening. The ground floor café bar is open from 4pm daily serving amazing food as well as being a cool place to enjoy an evening drink with friends. The upstairs music hall has it all… a massive glitter ball, velvet curtains, a domed ceiling, a smoking terrace and tiered seating. A place to dance, let loose and experience the best Manchester has to offer. Affordable drinks are also key at The Deaf Institute with their own lager, cider and wine pushing prices down alongside some great Happy Hour cocktail deals that will keep your wallet/purse safe from harm.

The Deaf Institute is a great Manchester venue for an evening with friends, as well as a classic gig and club night venue. A buzzy, young crowd should be expected, but you’ll have a great night guaranteed. A great place for parties and gatherings with groups of friends - book your table or drinks area online now using the form above.

The Deaf Institute narrows its mascara coated eyes and draws a long drag on a slim, lilac cigarette. "I'll be whatever you want me to be, sugar" it whispers huskily into the ears of the curious twenty-somethings crossing its drawbridge-like...

We were well attended to by staff, food was great as were the drinks and also well priced. Would have been 5 stars but we were a little disappointed when the DJ told us they don't do Spoti-Friday anymore, despite the request cards being out on the tables. But that's only a minor thing, I hope they bring it back! Visited The Deaf Institute on 2018-04-20

Great to have been given a designated seating area, set aside for our group, and particularly helpful that the music was turned down for our social gathering, so we could hear each other's conversations! The bar staff were very helpful. I haven't given 5 stars because one person from the group wasn't happy with the superfood salad not having the ingredients that were advertised in it, and another commented on the 'token gesture' of chorizo in the burger. But great ambience! Thanks. Visited The Deaf Institute on 2018-04-09

Great range of meal choices to suit all dietary preferences. Tasty food, a bit slow to arrive but we ordered at a peak moment and the place emptied out after people had gone up to a Jarvis Cocker gig. Good atmosphere, friendly staff who were able to answer ingredient queries. We enjoyed it and would go there again. Visited The Deaf Institute on 2018-04-03

Deaf Institute was very busy so the atmosphere was great but we were sadly very let down by the food. For a company who pride themselves on offering an abundance of vegan options, the staff were not very helpful. We ordered the vegan fully loaded fries. When they arrived the were covered in mozzarella sauce and salami. We told a member of staff and they took the plate away. No apology. They did not seem concerned that they had given us meat. I am very glad we asked before eating! Visited The Deaf Institute on 2018-01-26

I enjoyed the visit, the waitress/server was great and attentive. There was a bit of confusion with the 50% discount as I booked online and no problems or errors came up but was told it wasn't applicable at the counter. However the waitress resolved it for me and I really appreciate that. The food was mediocre, I found it very dry and after having fries with both meals my mouth was sadly in a lot of pain from all the dry food. I think a bit more dressing on the breads itself could be beneficial, or something a bit watery to moisten the bun and seitan patties. (Had the hotdog and burger). I do however really appreciate the water jug at the end of the bar, as a water enthusiast it was great that we could help ourselves and had lemon in it to help give it taste :) Just want to give another mention to the waitress/server, she was a gem and really helpful for us on making our orders and the customer service made the occasion that much more enjoyable.

I had my birthday party on the basement bar. The venue was perfect for the intimate celebration I was planning. There were 40 guests and the room was big enough for us to drink and dance the night away. The staff were really laid back and let me get in with it in terms of jazzing the place up with party decorations and fairy lights. Thanks Dear Institute xx Visited The Deaf Institute on 2018-01-06

We had a fantastic party with 60+ colleagues and fully recommend this venue for having dinner/dance parties. For us, a nice three-course meal was served, and as we had full use of the music hall, we danced the night away after the dinner - most successful department party in our history. Many thanks to Natalie and her team, who were extremely helpful during the pre-planning, and lovely, professional and welcoming at the night itself. We'll be back!

The cocktails needed to be larger/have more liquid in them - it seems like they were made up of mainly water and ice, and the vegan burgers we wanted ran out while it was only 7 p.m, these things need to be improve upon Visited The Deaf Institute on 2017-11-01

Waited 1 hour 20 mins for food and had to leave as we were told it may be a further 20 minutes on top of this. No apology given or compensation. We hadn’t to chase up our own food. We were told that the manager had just ordered some food and their order got president over ours - Hence why it would be a further 20 mins on top of the 1 hour 20 we had already waited. We were only a table of 2 and only ordered two standard means. Also this was a Tuesday night- so I hate to think what it would be like at peek time. Work restaurant experience I have ever had. If you can even call it that as we never actually got any food. Visited The Deaf Institute on 2017-10-17

The place gets better and better, the food and beer is unreal, and the way all the staff were with my 21 month old daughter was fantastic.

I booked table for one for 8pm but called about 5pm and asked if they could move my table reservation about an hour earlier. They considered! The location was precise in Google Maps but for someone who's a first-timer in Manchester, the place is not obvious from outside. I found my way in, anyway! It's got a cool-mysterious vibe from outside. The aura made me feel intimidated to go inside, initially. Which is good!! I stated in the booking to put me on a comfortable seat in the room. They put me on a platform. Just a bit awkward for someone going out alone. Hahaha! I found it funny...not bad! I love that they have the vegan choices for food and beer! I ordered the Saitan Hotdog with vegan bacon crisps. I didnt think it was vegan! I've only been vegetarian for 5 months so I know what to expect from the taste of vegan-modified food. And yes! Ut was delicious! I just find it a bit odd that there were pasta bits in the Hotdog. The waiter was, in his own ways, quite friendly as he frequently asked me how I was and how's the food and if I need anything else (maybe because I was by myself). I was eating proper dinner and having beer while everyone else in the room were in a pub-mode. I was planning to watch live music after dinner but I felt so full after the meal. There were university-looking people and young adults in the room and some coming & out of the main door. To sum up, gastronomically, as a vegetarian, food is a must-try. For beer & chat with mates, this is a good place to go as it is cozy & has a "we-are-family-so-be-comfortable" vibe. There's also the club & live music so this place will never be boring!

Met with father and sister here with my wife for dinner before heading out to see a movie. We were hoping to enlighten then to vegan food as neither are vegan or have been to the deaf institute before. We had booked a table but the staff seemed reluctant to help in showing us where our table was. When asking how long it would take for food to come, the bar member said 5-10 mins. However, the wait turned out to be 25 mins which almost meant we missed the movie and had to rush. The quality of the food was a little disappointing also. The bean chilli was a bit sickly to taste, and contained beans which were undercooked and crunchy. Its a shame to write this negative review considering the place seemed like a good idea on paper. The decor and music playing was cool, but everything else was a let down. Hopefully this will be taken as constructive criticism and things will have improved should I ever come again.

Had a great night here with a gig and food beforehand. We booked a table but our friends were late however this was not a problem with the staff and we were not pressured to leave the table. Our friend ordered chicken wings which were unavailable so the staff made up for this with complimentary drinks and extra fries. They went out of their way to apologise and returned a couple of times to check that everything was ok.

I booked a table several days in advance. On arrival I was told first there was no booking and then that I hadn't booked for 6pm I booked for 8pm. I showed my email proving I booked 6-8pm and said I wanted a booth. I asked if the people sat in the booths at the back had booked - 1 person sat in each but was the waiter wouldn't ask anyone to move even though he confirmed they weren't booked. Fortunately the people at the side booth got up to leave so we got that one. Otherwise the food was very good and everything else fine. I just don't see the point of a booking system that doesn't work, I would have left if a booth didn't become available. Visited The Deaf Institute on 2016-11-30

I would highly recommend the gold teeth event here! It does get very packed and due to this navigating your way around can be difficult but it's still one of the best student nights out I've been on! The place is really easy to get to, just off Oxford road so convenient for transport links too!

I've been here for dates, casual drinks, gigs AND nights out and absolutely love the music and drinks selection. Would not recommend it to anyone who cannot stand the sight of hipsters. Only complaint is that there is often inconsistency in drinks prices depending on who serves you.

Definitely a student venue but for anyone in there 'late' twenties such as myself its great for lunch. Plus the club nights at the weekend are loads of fun. Pop! Is great If you ever get a chance to go to a gig here Id highly recommend it
