Trof, Fallowfield

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

Trof is a lively, studenty bar, nestling in the heart of Fallowfield, with lovely food, and a really friendly atmosphere. It’s usually rammed — especially in term time.

It’s a bit of a Manchester Institution, and this, the original Trof, has spawned three other venues — The Corner (which is right next door, on Wilmslow Road), Trof in the Northern Quarter, and the Deaf Institute (which is just off Oxford Road, near Sand Bar and Manchester Met uni)..

Trof Open Mic

This open mic is every Tuesday during term time, held in the big room upstairs. It’s always busy and bustling, with a good crowd – mainly students. People listen, though they also talk, which is kinda par for the course really. Definitely worth a look!

Music nights at Trof

Trof used to be one of the best music venues in Fallowfield — it hosted a huge range of nights, including North-South Divide, and my own Songs for the Bath Tub acoustic night.. The Trof Fallowfield open mic is still going strong on a Tuesday though – and it’s worth checking out if you’d like to play to a big, lively audience. It’s one of the better-known open mics in Manchester.

More manchester open mics

Iguanna Bar does an open mic every Tuesday. It’s usually quite busy, and a big variety of standards of musicians play. It’s quite noisy, but well worth a look-in… have been to some really fun nights here.
