The former Union Bank of Manchester SJ8990 : Union Bank of Manchester Building on Bridge Street is a Grade II listed building LinkExternal link dated 1900.

The Union Bank was established in 1836 with a capital of 6 million divided into 24,000 shares of 25 each. Although the original intention of the Union Bank was to confine itself to Manchester, after twenty years this policy was changed, and its first branch opened at Knutsford in 1856. The bank flourished with the growth of industry and acquired several smaller banks in Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire. It became an affiliated bank within the Barclays Group in 1919, when 99% of its capital was acquired under an arrangement whereby Union Bank shareholders were given shares in Barclays to replace their Union Bank shares. This was Barclays' last major acquisition before the Treasury put a block on major banking mergers in 1920. The Union Bank continued to be managed and marketed separately until 1940 when it was fully absorbed into Barclays. LinkExternal link

In recent years the building had been home to the appropriately named Bank Fashion Store. It closed after the company was put into administration in January 2015.

Now it is home the Hatters Coffee House LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
