There's fewer places that provide the raw, authentic Manchester music experience than the cosy Eagle Inn in Salford. It brings the warmth and relaxed environment of a pub and the sounds of local music under one roof. If you're looking for an intimate space to watch emerging talents, the Eagle Inn is a great spot to head to first.
Placed on Collier Street, the venue is within walking distance from Manchester city centre. But despite its proximity, the Inn is much more homely and calm than urban and modern music venues. It dates back to the start of the 20th century, having been delicately restored over time. Thanks to its great vibes and musical programme, the Inn has significantly added to Salford's nightlife, bringing people away from crowded city-centre favourites.
Visitors can admire artists from ground level or overlooking from the mezzanine. There's also outdoor space that has been compared to a sun trap, warming up Manchester's ever-so-slightly cool temperament. The bar is also affordable and serves up great snacks from the local bakery, leaving you no choice but to stay for hours.
