According to the hotel's website LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

"Situated on the corner of Canal Street & Princess Street, in Manchester's Gay Village, the New Union is a friendly mixed bar. The Union Hotel was built in 1865 & the name refers to the union of countries in the Commonwealth at that time. The building's stained glass windows depict those countries including Canada, New Zealand, Australia, India & New Foundland. It has been a gay venue for as long as anyone can remember & in the 50s the owner went to prison for running a public house of ill repute. The name was changed to the New Union in the 70s & the pub was extended in the mid 90s to cater for the increasing number of visitors to the Gay Village. The current owners took the reigns in 2004."
