The Deaf Institute is a fun loving bar, spread across three floors of a historic building, originally built in 1878. In 2010 it got refurbished back to its original glory and is now a perfect venue which has 3 bars, a kitchen, a roof terrace and a capacity of 300 people. The basement is all-time available to hire intimate space with a cosy atmosphere, and its own private bar. The facility has hosted shows with famous performers like The Stone Roses
, The Cadillac Tree, Aurora
, Nina Nesbitt.
