The Deaf Institute review

Right in the heart of the University district, Trof 3 (now named the 'Deaf Institute'....seriously) is the third incarnation of the Trof brand in Manchester. The first - and most loved - Trof is the original in Fallowfield. Food by day, music and drinks by night, a former terraced house was converted in to a chic little cafe bar for the well appointed students nearby. The second Trof was predictably in the Northern Quarter, and this third bar is in the make-believe area called the Southern Quarter, close to Oxford Road and the nearby studentsville.

The Deaf Institute opens on the 29th February.

they had no choice, it`s a listed building and couldn`t do anything about the frontage, after many meetings and much debate the name was kept.

caz says...
the reason its called the deaf institute is because it used to be exactly that, now its just the name of the building. nothing to do or in any way detrimental or insulting to deaf people.

Lol. we was sayin that in uni the other day about the name. You ask you mates do they fancy coming out to the 'Deaf institute' tonight. lmao i actually like it, its funny. lets all go to the deaf institute and get p*ssed


the building is amazing, very well done and its good to bring life back to such an unusual and beautiful building. i don't know what everyones problem is with the name. the buildings been called that for about 100 years what do u want them to do chisel off the the entire front of the building. been in quite a few times now and every time the staff have been really friendly and the foods been really tasty.

The name of 'The Deaf Institute' was decided after a meeting with Noel Traynor, Chief Executive Officer of the Manchester Deaf Centre.

As i can tell you we had a meeting with the deaf institute association. The building is listed as the deaf and dumb institute as it was called this over 100 years ago .So get over it .its not insensitive it was after much negotiation with the deaf association, that we retained the name.

Its called history we are still called Trof just the building is called the deaf institute look at the biulding frontage in the day time its actually calved into the building


rob says...

FANTASTIC venue. The Staff, food, atmosphere.....The best. Went last night to see Crazy P and will go again. 10/10 :). Wish l was a student and not reaching the MIDDLE age bracket...........ENJOY WHAT YOU HAVE


Saw the Aliens there last week. The upstairs venue is pretty smart with a glass balcony, gallery wallpapered stage and dome. The Aliens were on top form and the combination of them and the setting made for a brilliantly surreal and very intimate night. I can't imagine a better combination of music and place.

Ken Neck says...

Great music, lovely top room, but COMPLETELY inaccessible rom a disability perspective. When was this place refurbished? (thinking DDA reg's)

I would sooooooo appreciate a stairlift... a bit annoying that so many bands play here now instead of the Academy; 3 and Club are ideal for smaller bands, and at least I can get into those...

The Doorman who also works at fallowfield was there to greet us what a lovely guy.Unlike most Doorstaff he is always pleasant and makes us feel welcome.Its a pity that the bar staff are not as welcoming,The Food is amazing and the waitress was also very nice.We stayed in most of the night as we couldnt move for the large portions which were washed down with Trof wine.
