Copper Face Jacks, Oxford Street. (c) N. J. Higham at www.manchester.ac.uk.
Dingy chain bar beneath the Palace Hotel on the corner of Whitworth Street which closed only a year or two ago. Never had the pleasure myself but by all accounts it was a bit of a cattle market, so probably the Peter Street, Printworks and student crowd would have frequented it. One of its last incarnations appears to have been a venue for United fans to watch big matches, something which is no longer needed now match tickets are easier to come by thanks to the expansion of the stadium and the principled boycott by rebel FC United fans. It's now Tempus Bar & Restaurant, still affiliated to the hotel, and did try its hand at the Mongolian Barbecue apparently.
