Pier 6 / Waterside, Clippers Quay

Pier 6 was a large bar and restaurant opened by Bass Taverns on Clippers Quay, Salford Quays, during its first post-Manchester/Salford Docks regeneration in the 1980s and '90s.

Along with Banks's Old Pump House also on Clippers Quay, Pier 6 was a nice little pre-cinema and match day destination, easily accessed from the Manchester side of the Quays.

Before closure Pier 6 became the Waterside in the 1990s, but larger scale regeneration of the Quays saw its demolition and replacement by flats.
