Common opened it’s doors on 23rd December 2004, then quickly closed them again and went on holiday, reopening on 7th January 2005. We have been plying our trade from Edge Street ever since, muddling through good times, bad times, indifferent times like a dysfunctional family, hopefully those of you that came with us had a good time and have no permanent scars.

Now we’ve opened a new chapter with the opening of the kestrel suite, we hope you all like it and we can continue to meet your needs in the years to come. Big love to all those who have helped us on our way, to our staff, past and present, artists, anyone who has ever put paintbrush to wall, and djs/promoters, even though you always break our kit. And last but not least our regulars, all of those who have propped up the bar over the years a big thank you, it wouldn’t be the same without you. Nice.

“Arguably the best bar in Manchester, and a true-spirited independent. Expect good beer, interesting music and proper home-cooked food.” - Tony Naylor, The Guardian
