Nestled within a popular museum in Manchester, you’ll find this striking self-contained space – perfect for small gatherings, lectures and drinks receptions. The area surrounding the museum is home to popular restaurants and bars and is close to a picturesque river front.
The Coal Store is a medium sized venue seating around 50 people but allowing for a slightly larger number when standing. The space has plenty of unique features including exposed brick walls, wooden floor and huge steel beams, which add character to the high vaulted wooden ceiling. This is definitely an aesthetically interesting space to visit.
The opening hours for this venue are from 10:00am - 5:00pm but there is an option to extend this into the evening for an extra fee.
