Famous record shop with links to great DJ’s & musicians such as 808 State:
Opposite Affleck’s Palace this was a very cool place when I was buying records back in the Madchester days.
Dry 201 bar designed by architect Ben Kelly (famous for designing Manchester’s former Hacienda nightclub, ‘the Hac’):
Nearby record shops include Vinyl Exchange and Dry 201 bar was just a bit east up Oldham Street.
Oldham Street buildings vary in quality but tend to be 3 or 4 storeys in a fairly humble Victorian style.
Buildings a little to the north of Oldham Street in an area which is slowly being done up – or gentrified, former Manchester Fish Market:
