                      Gorilla venue information

                      BAR. KITCHEN. STAGE. CLUB.

                      Located in the centre of Manchester, Gorilla is a venue that has seen some of the best gigs in the city since it opened in 2012. It’s been a haven for amazing new indie bands and also hosted some huge names such as Foals and Kylie Minogue who have chosen it for smaller more intimate shows.

                      Recently the venue was almost forced to close during the pandemic but due to public outcry this institution and vital cog within Manchester’s gig circuit was saved. The food at Gorilla is just as good as the artists that they bring to the venue with a menu that caters to most dietary requirements.

                      Gorilla is a thriving cultural hub, its venue space has a unique backdrop and has become the go-to place to see some of the best artists just before they transition into becoming huge names. Gorilla cannot be missed for any avid gig goers.
