The Northern Quarter has always been there…it just ddn’t go by the name ‘Northern Quarter‘ until it was thus branded in the early 1990s.
Started its rise to fashion-nobility with Afflecks Palace, circa 1981, and Factory-owned Dry Bar aided Manchester’s shift in focus over to Oldham Street.

Thomas Street, Tib Street and Dale Street – the latter dressed up to feature as 1940’s America in the first Captain America movie – are full of lively places to eat and drink.
