Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A live music destination hosting gigs and themed club nights, where DJs spin crowd-pleasing hits from decades gone by

Yes, it’s a curious name for a live music venue, but The Deaf Institute is a great new use for what was once, in less enlightened times, a deaf and dumb school.

Another venue in the Trof empire (see Gorilla and Albert Hall), the ground floor offers space for drinking and dining, while upstairs there's a music hall with space for a few hundred people.

Along with live acts, regular club nights keep the crowds coming. Now established as some of the most entertaining nights in town, the likes of Girls On Film on the first Saturday of the month brings ’80s hits from the likes of Duran Duran, Blondie and The Smiths, while those who prefer to stomp to a ’60s beat can enjoy Hendrix, The Doors and Aretha at Revolver on the third Saturday of the month.

tastemaker

The Deaf Institute has been keeping Manchester's student population entertained for years, with regular gigs, club nights and other events. Split over multiple floors, you're sure to find something to suit your taste on a night here.


The Deaf Institute is definitely my choice of club should the night call for it. The music tends to be recognisable but just on the right side of cheesy and suits more alternative tastes than regular student clubs.
