Liner Bar / Dockers Club, Trafford Road

Liner Bar, Trafford Road, Ordsall. (c) Paul Wilson with posthumous permission.

The Liner Bar or Liner Restaurant was opened by Greenalls Brewery on Trafford Road in the mid-1980s.  This low-rise building, pictured above about 1991 by the late Paul Wilson, had previously been the Dockers Club, opposite Manchester Docks.  The Liner Bar closed in 1993 and demolished for road widening in July 1995 [1].  This office block now stands on the site of the Liner Club, opposite the entrances to Salford Quays and Media City.
