The Grand Central pub on Oxford Road is a well known haunt for heavy metal enthusiasts and all night rock parties. Steeped in metal heritage, the pub plays host to up and coming live rock and metal bands every Thursday night. As a music Manchester nightlife staple the pub has an incredible atmosphere. A favourite with passing people waiting for trains at the nearby Oxford Road station or of course the local regulars.

As one of the best metal pubs in Manchester, The Grand Central offers diversity and a chance for people to feel comfortable drinking. No fancy frills are needed, the pub proudly boasts itself as a casual meeting point for like-minded music lovers. With an extensive jukebox there is something for everyone to choose from. Affordable drinks are also key at Grand Central with their own lager and great drink specials on bottled beer, jagermeister and spirits, making it easy on the bank balance. 

With the pub being on the heart of Oxford Road there is also a great selection of surrounding places to choose from, making it the perfect place to start a Manchester pub crawl. If loud music isn't your thing then maybe just pop in for one but if you're wanting to taste a real bite of Manchester's ever-growing music scene then The Grand Central is a perfect place to experience new tastes with a friendly atmosphere.
