The Star and Garter - Manchester

The Star and Garter is the last, truly, indie venue you will ever know.

It was originally constructed in 1803 approximately 100 yards from it's current position and moved, brick by brick, in 1849 to allow London Road (before it became Piccadilly) Railway Station to expand, reopening in 1877.

It is home to two of the longest running club nights in Manchester- Smile and the Morrissey Smiths Disco - and is renowned for continually producing the city's most talked about "new breed" of nights, by encouraging promoters to promote in the old fashioned way and not lazily rely on their friends and the Internet.

Club nights and, in some cases actual Nightclubs, in Manchester which were born out of Smile include Now Wave, Barbed Wire Kisses, Clique, Bam Bam, Up The Racket, Revovler, Tiger Lounge and any "Smiths Disco" anywhere.

It's also a venue for live appearances from bands and artistes covering all genres of music and performance, be it musically, on film or television or just somewhere someone has ended up by mistake or on purpose.
