Pictures of Dukes 92
Dukes takes its name from the adjacent 'Dukes Lock' which is the 92nd and final lock on the Rochdale Canal. As the bottom lock this should have been No.1, but the canal was built by a yorkshireman who refused to have No.1 in Lancashire!

Welcome to Dukes 92...

Dukes 92 was originally a stable block for the horses delivering foods off barges to the Merchants warehouse opposite. From these humble begininngs the building now houses Manchester's original bar and grill which has been refurbished and extended three times since its opening in 1991 the space today is informal and airy with the buildings heritage being reflected in a subtle blend of antique furniture and modern fixed seating.

With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin.

Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.

The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture, which offers a nod to the humble beginnings of the building.
