Joshua Brooks, on the corner of Charles and Princess Street, began life in 1993, and was quickly established as one of Manchester’s prime nightspots. This is when the Chemical Brothers (then known as Dust Brothers) began their first residency at the club, and have gone on to become global superstars. Copious amounts of upcoming and established DJs and bands have since played within the basement’s bricked walls.
The last few years have seen a lot of change at the venue, having had a complete refurb and brand new sound system installed as well as a whole host of club nights joining, meaning there will be something on every night of the week, catering for all musical tastes.
The venue is currently Manchester Evening News ‘Best Venue’ as well as been nominated as ‘Best Small Club’ in DJmag in the last few years.
In case you were wondering, the name “Joshua Brooks” derives from a Victorian novel called The Manchester Man, written by Mrs G. Linnaeus Banks in 1876 (google it).
