Joshua Brooks, on the corner of Charles and Princess Street, began life in 1993, and was quickly established as one of Manchester's prime nightspots.
This is when the Chemical Brothers (then known as Dust Brothers) began their first residency at the club, and have gone on to become global superstars.
Copious amounts of upcoming and established DJs and bands have since played within the basement's bricked walls.
2010 saw a lot of change at the venue, having had a complete refurb and brand new soundsystem installed as well as a whole host of clubnights joining, meaning there will be something on every night of the week, catering for all musical tastes. By the end of the year, CityLife (Manchester Evening News) named us their BEST VENUE!
The name "Joshua Brooks", derives from a Victorian novel called The Manchester Man, written by Mrs G. Linnaeus Banks in 1876 (google it).
