The Peer Hat

We are an independent music venue and bar operating out of the Northern Quarter in Manchester. We offer an eclectic bill of musical acts as well as poetry, theatre, art exhibitions, workshops and other assorted activites. We pride ourselves on a friendly, community atmosphere where everybody is welcome. We also sell records and return all the money back to the arist. The Peer Hat’s open and inclusive booking policy makes for a diverse offering where local talented is nurtured and the under-represented are provided a platform to flourish.
