Hire the Music Hall at The Deaf Institute for your next private party and snag one of Manchester’s funkiest venues
Built 1878 to house The Deaf Institute, this unusual event venue in the heart of the Manchester Metropolitan University Campus was rediscovered and refurbished in 2011. Spanning three bars across three floors, and including an on-site kitchen and roof terrace, The Deaf Institute is now home to live music, comedy and club nights and has been the launching point for some of today’s biggest names in music.
The Music Hall on the first floor comes with everything you could want for your private party and more! The room is dominated by an enormous mirror ball hanging beneath a beautiful domed ceiling set with wrap-around skylights and flooded with natural light. Ironwork stairs lead up to the fish-bowl mezzanine, which boasts overstuffed red-plush bench seating and a fantastic view of the bar and dancefloor. The bar itself is banked with a beautiful retro-chic collection of speakers surrounded by the colourful flashes of parrots climbing the walls. The stage space is framed by luscious red-velvet drapes and faces band-stand style tiered seating, and that stage isn’t just for show. This hire also comes complete with artists’ dressing room & accommodation, a smoking terrace, dedicated toilets & full production facilities.
With full PA & DJ equipment, AV set up and its own dedicated bartenders, the Music Hall at The Deaf Institute is perfect for parties, receptions, film screenings & live performances. With ample room for 260 standing, 120 seated conference style or 70 dining, this incredible event venue can comfortably accommodate any occasion, including corporate events of every sort, seminars, presentations & workshops. The Deaf Institute are happy to provide you with a dedicated event manager, DJs, food, drinks packages, projector and DVD facilities.
The Music Hall is available until 10.30pm on Tues/Fri/Sat and 12 am midweek.
