The Footage

Located on Oxford Road, adjacent to Manchester Met’s All Saints campus, The Footage is primarily known for its cheap booze and burgers, its karaoke and its big screen football. When the latter two clash during a midweek Champions League fixture, the atmosphere might be a little overwhelming for some. On a Sunday afternoon, it’s hardly a local’s favourite, but the boozy atmosphere is undeniably electric, with a young crowd shaking off their hangovers and getting good-naturedly riled. There are screens of various sizes as far as the eye can see, and a large balcony to oversee the action. And tension.

As a student in Manchester, spending numerous drunken nights in The Footage is somewhat of a right of passage. Cheap drinks, tasty pub grub, loud music, pool tables and big screens for sports, this place knows its target market and serves it well. 


A firm favourite with students and sports fans. If there's a big game/match/fight then The Footage will be showing it. They've gained a loyal following within the student community, mainly due to the cheapness of their beer and food. 

They've recently undertaken a massive refurbishment which now makes it look like a trendy Northern Quarter bar, yet maintained their decent prices. Think Whetherspoons with an added student atmosphere.
