Firstly excuse my photography as the drink was flowing and the phone was shaking, but it does show what a great time was had at The Gas Works Brewbar launch party.
As I work in Old Trafford opposite Media City, their other bar, The Dockyard, is well known to me and The Gas Works isn't much different, with its wooden interior and modern incandescent bulbs, you could almost be by the canal in Media City.
The atmosphere inside was great lively with the rich cross section of people, but as it was a launch party it's hard to get a good reading of what the clientele will be like in future.
The food at the party was great with chicken sliders and an excellent chocolate cake, which I'm hoping bodes well for their future menus.
All in all it's a great place to hang out and meet friends before or after a theatre or cinema visit at HOME which is bang opposite.
One thing to note, is their postcode if you're trying to find the place. They have it as M15 4RA which puts you in a small housing estate in Hulme! Try M15 4RG if you really want to find this fun bar.
