Boardwalk, Little Peter Street

Probably most famous for being the venue where Oasis rehearsed and performed in the early '90s, the Boardwalk had been an important live music venue since the early days of Madchester, with the likes of the Happy Mondays, Stone Roses and 808 State playing. Local-ish band James had played the opening night in 1986 and renowned DJ Dave Haslam hosted the Yellow night here until the Boardwalk closed its doors in 1999 [1]. According to developers, the Boardwalk underwent a "comprehensive but sympathetic refurbishment, now providing a stunning space including exposed brickwork and steel beams" [2].
