A licensed café bar and creative space in Fallowfield, South Manchester –  hosting a number of musical and open mic events, as well as serving food and drink.

Upstairs is a performance space which regularly hosts live bands, small club nights, open mic sessions, quizzes and film screenings. It can also be booked.

Fallow Café is home to Verbose open mic night – ‘bringing the words to the ‘burbs’’ – and has welcomed a range of spoken-word artists including Ian McGuire and Jenny Brown – as well as groups like Manchester Left Writers. It is hosted by Sarah-Clare Conlon.

Grasswing is another example of a popular open mic event, at which songwriters can showcase their work, with two featured artists every week and an open mic 8 – 10pm, hosted by The Bear Around Your Neck.

Close to the University of Manchester, Fallow Café helps provides a space for nearby groups and organisations to showcase their work including the Centre for New Writing at Manchester University.
