Some of the set and outfits look less cartoonish almost though. Great cast plus Laura Linney and Kidman.

The grindsmith on deansgate are just crashing in an empty unit for the moment and good location for them as the pick up all the passing trade from Deansgate station to spinningfields and around. Always struggle to pick between them and Caffeine Co.

Looking for a recommendation for dinner on my girlfriends birthday in couple of weeks. Got a reservation for the Saturday night at mr coopers just in case and tried to get Manchester house but couldn't. Rather go somewhere other then mr coopers as been before recently.

I know this gets asked a lot, but where's a decent hairdressers / barbers in the city centre?

My mate at Trevor Sorbie used to give me mates rates but she's gone travelling for a few months.
Did Maclures for a few years before that, won't go again now.
Didn't like Reubenwood.
Close gave me the worst haircut I'd ever had so I had to wear a hat for a few weeks.

Looks full on gimmicky, but do they actually do a decent cut? New coffee place over from the manchester branch meant to be decent also.

Yea saw that Barber Barber place. Put off by the fact that all they seem to want to do is get the clippers out and give everyone pompadour or hitler youth haircut.

I had mine done there a few months ago by the owner, he took longer on it than any cut I have had before, very professional and thorough. Don't think they are limited to rockabilly styles.

got mine done at barber barber a few weeks ago and they were good.

Also quite a few of the non-trainees at Sassoons have great attention to detail but will cost you a bit more £££, I used to get it free but my guy moved back to greece.

Jesus 2022's gone down the pan. New owners have stopped club nights and ended exhibitions. Empty Friday night. Layed off all the staff.

Reckon it'll be shut by Christmas.
