A Little About This Space

Running through the middle of Manchester, Deansgate is home to local landmarks including Spinningfields and the Grade II listed Barton Arcade. And two levels beneath the latter is this recently renovated, unique 1,000 square feet even space to rent, previously used by the likes of Reebok and Lone Wolf. Oh, and did we mention there’s a 40-seater private cinema?


The quirky shops, cafes and businesses of Barton Arcade can be found near the Number One Deansgate development (home to the city’s branch of Harvey Nichols) and surrounded by a crop of bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants that make this a popular destination in the evenings and weekends. However, Deansgate is a main transport route and busy shopping and business district, so it’s just as lively during the day. Manchester Victoria station is a five-minute walk.


Barton Arcade’s shops include a branch of the oldest independent show shop in the UK, Jeffrey West, womenswear boutique Jill Black, and men’s clothing and trainer shop The R Store. You’ll be one floor under the Be At One bar.
