Silver Moon / Patties, Dantzic Place

Dantzic Place and Shudehill tram stop. (c) googlemaps.

The Silver Moon was on Dantzic Place, off Dantzic Street, owned in the 1970s by Terry / Ted Barry then Pete Farrell [1].  Farrell and his wife later renamed the Silver Moon as Patties and changed it into more of a disco [2].  Thanks to 'Tigger' and June at Man Mates for these reminisces.  These days Dantzic Place has been opened up due to the building of Shudehill tram stop, so the Silver Moon / Patties may have been one of the buildings shown.



  1. Incorrect.
    Thge Silver Moon name remained as such and changed to 'Waves' around 1975-6 by the then Manager, Dave Degg
