Stage & Radio Club / Senator / Wetherbys / Cuba Café, Port Street

Stage & Radio Club, Port Street, 1966. (c) Manchester Libraries hosted at Facebook.

The Stage & Radio Club is shown above in 1966, listed as Dean Street, just off Newton Street and Port Street.  The sign says "Cunninghams Ales" and later in the '70s it may be been the Senator, while in the '80s it was Wetherby's under Tony Millward (named after the racecourse).  These days the venue is Cuba Café, a quirky little late night salsa club which we've used for a late drink in the past, as well as attending a few decent parties.  In early 2011, the Port Street Beer House from the people at Common (one of the Northern Quarter's finer bars) is opening in this little block, between the Crown & Anchor and Cuba Café, and it promises to be a belting addition to a rather jaded area of town...
