Welcome in the weekend at our Friday night Happy Hour, enjoy the buzz before a performance or compare notes after the show - welcome to Bar Exchange, the heart of the Theatre's social life.

Bar Exchange RBGYou don't need a theatre ticket to enjoy the pre-show atmosphere at Bar Exchange, so why not pop in and marvel at our unique building - often described as an architechtual gem in Manchester. 

Located in the Great Hall's main colonnade, Bar Exchange opens from 5.00pm Monday - Saturday and serves a range of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, as well as Prosecco by the glass. 


Pre-order your interval drinks and find them ready and waiting for you in the Great Hall. Just place your order with a member of staff at Bar Exchange. 
Fresh coffee and teas are available from our Express coffee point adjacent to the Cross Street entrance. 


Each Friday evening from 5.30pm, our Great Hall Bar (located by The Studio) serves discounted drinks to accompany Special FX - our FREE Friday Entertainment. Get a pint of lager or bitter, or a house wine for just £3! Available until 6.30pm.

"I dare you to walk up the steps and step into a world of magic and majesty. Its a work of old and new and something that works together."
