This was odd cause went week before to scout it out then after finding a risky but simple way in off the fire scape went back week later with mr gronk only to find a much much easier way lol.
This was a fun little mooch and one place i wanted to see for a while. Put it here cause it does have a underground pub hence the name. On you tube there is an awesome spoof vid from here claiming its manchesters hidden underground bar lol Epic funny vid.
Cant really find any history shame really.
But what i do know is it was used has a club and got shut up due to various reasons lol..
