The Hacienda Apartments on the corner of Whitworth Street West were once the site of one of the most (in)famous nightclubs in the world.

The Hacienda was one of the first superclubs, it saw performances from the likes of Madonna and The Smiths when they were still hardly known, and was central to the Madchester music revolution. It closed its doors in 1997, posh flats standing on its hallowed ground. Behind them, where clubbers used to spill out along the canal at night doing all sorts of things they shouldn't, the story of The Hacienda is told in a metalic timeline.

Everyone who went has stories to tell about their time at The Hacienda. Here is its own story from start to end.
