The Northern Quarter is getting a brand new venue from the creative team behind German beerhaus and party hub Albert’s Schloss. Swan Street Fire House promises to be a new cafe, bar, venue and event space, setting up shop in the largely unused MOT station located opposite the Mackie Mayor on Swan Street. During lockdown, this street art-covered space was used as a food drop off point, helping to feed the homeless amid the height of the pandemic. Now the venue looks set to get a new lease of life courtesy of Adelaide Winter and Joel Wilkinson, a creative duo who’s past credits include work at The Deaf Institute, Gorilla and Albert’s Schloss, alongside founding Trof’s Northern Quarter branch back in 2006. Located on land that’s currently being redeveloped by Capital & Centric, early reports suggest Swan Street Fire House will be an all-day, late night venue, helping to draw new crowds to this ever-changing area of Manchester city centre. With its proximity to popular food and drink hall The Mackie Mayor and the bustling Ancoats neighbourhood – Swan Street Fire House looks to be a welcome addition to town.
