Manchester Albert Hall (Cupola)
The Albert Hall, on Peter Street, is a Grade II listed building (English Heritage ID:455644 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings). It was designed, with a mixture of Baroque and Gothic elements, by the architect WJ Morley and built in 1910 as the Manchester and Salford Wesleyan Mission.

Albert Hall as a Methodist meeting place is now closed. The lower two floors were converted to Brannigans, a large and, for a period of time, popular bar and nightclub during the 1990s. Brannigans closed in 2011, and the recently refurbished building reopened in 2014 as an events venue, restaurant and bar. According to their website LinkExternal link , “The grand and ornate chapel has been restored into a stunning purpose built music hall and is set to become one of the most atmospheric music and events venues in the UK.”
