The Deaf Institute Mar 22, 2014
The Deaf Institute is my new Favourite Bar In the World. Regular readers know I have a new Favourite Bar in the World about once every three or four months, but Deaf Institute will take some beating. It has many of my favourite pub related features. The bar serves beers like Brew Dog Punk IPA and Brooklyn Lager, Goose Island Honkers Ale, and other lovely goodies. The rum in the rum and cokes is especially lovely rum. It has a tiny little upstairs gig venue with a tiny little auditorium where you can see bands – intimate gig would be a significant understatement. And the downstairs bit manages to be pre-club whilst still cozy enough to have a conversation. It takes its name from the original function of the building.

Run by the same people who own Troff in the Northern Quarter, it’s also a little way out of town – maybe a 15 minute walk from both student-Manchester in one direction and Northern Quarter Manchester in the other – so it’s not as rammed as it would be if it was in the heart of either, and there’s a good mix of people there. With Troff in charge, there is good food earlier in the evening. And the staff are, without fail, just lovely. It’s maybe a tiny, tiny little bit hipster, but you can forgive it because it is just so nice.

It sounds lovely - good to know if I ever get dragged out to the burbs :) I've seen Guy Garvey a couple of times in the cinema - never wanted to say hi when the man is clearly just trying to watch a film!

You'd like Begal Bar in Chorlton too. Same owners, and similar style. It's a regular hang out for Guy Garvey (lead singer, Elbow) and Badly Drawn Boy. I saw them two a ton of times, but you do see a good few of that kind of crowd going there.
