This large turn of the century pub has established quite a reputation locally for its live music acts over the last few years. The Star & Garter started by offering free space to any band that could bring its own audience, and recently was the only pub-sized venue in the UK to put on Status Quo during a recent tour. Inside on the ground floor there is a traditional curved bar with a main room festooned with music posters and fliers, while the snug houses a pool table. Upstairs is the venue room with small raised stage, basic sound system and its own separate bar. It has a late license and also puts on regular club nights, such as Manchester's longest Indie club night Smile on Saturdays.
