At No.17 Charles Street, the Brighton Inn was an imposing pub on the corner of Brook Street (now the end of Princess Street) and Charles Street. It's pictured at the archives in 1907, and closed just 4 later in 1911 . The Brighton Inn was on the north side of the River Medlock, which placed it just in historical Manchester rather than Chorlton-on-Medlock. The site of the Brighton Inn is now taken by the Ibis Hotel which contains one of Manchester's best curry houses, East Z East, opposite the old Factory Records HQ (Paradise Factory) and diagonally across from Joshua Brooks and its neighbour, the Lass O'Gowrie.
