 Whilst PJ Bells aka Kaleida aka Republica (now Matt & Phreds) , kept the Oldham St.  torch burning during the 80s and early 90s, it was the Night & Day Cafes development during the mid 90s, that created the first sparks of a cultural explosion in a depressing and semi-derelict part of the city. Soon a massive menu of local and touring bands made it the place to play, challenging all nearby venues head on. It's now maybe Manchester's coolest venue.   

Today, N&D sits at the centre of a regenerating and new cultural focus of Manchester. Even better, is the fact that the young promoters who cut their teeth, grafting to make N&D work are still around and involved in other musical ventures within Manchester.

A small, compact caf bar  N&D is hot in summer (although not quite as much due to some air-con) and loud all year round A high stage gives everyone a good view hosts lots of live stuff, as well as hosting club nights.  Well worth your time and effort especially as its live events calendar is now probably the best in the City .
