The soup kitchen is a new club opened in 2008, and its uniqueness stands in the double role it plays: at day is a perfect place to eat (as the name suggests the club is just like a canteen) and at night, it is one of the best clubs in Manchester. The venue can hold up to 150 people, even 200 on the busiest nights. Singers like Ryley Walker, Rosie Lowe, and local DJ’s are performing on The Soup Kitchen stage since the venue debut.
Located on 31-33 Spear Street, Manchester, The Soup Kitchen is easily available by several transport means, such as:
By train and tube: the nearest rail station is Market Street - you can reach it by F, G, and H lines. However, you will have to walk for a couple of blocks up Tib Street before you can reach the Soup Kitchen.
By bus: a dozen of bus lines, including 18, 42, 59, 77, 162, 163, and X35, stop at Church St - less than a block away from the venue.
By car: if you are coming from the center follow High street and turn right to Church street; after about half a mile and turn left for Spear Street.
International: the best way to reach the venue directly from the airport is to take the train to Church St and from walk for a couple of blocks to the Kitchen. This is the most direct route you can find.
There are no parking facilities assured by the club; yet free on-street parking is available. Unfortunately, there are no dedicated yellow lines.
Accessibility for people with special needs
The entrance of the club doesn’t have stairs, so it is easily accessible for wheelchair users - even though there is no ramp access. Still, the club has an adapted toilet and accessible seats for people with special needs.
