The Merchant Room

The Merchant Room is a contemporary addition to the Castlefield Rooms and uses roof glazing to maximise the feeling of space and light. The floor to ceiling windows complete the modern feel with unparalleled dual aspect views of our surrounding Castlefield Basin landscape. An elegant and modern aspect of the venue which provides all the glitz and glamour required for any special event.

The Brindley Room

This is a stylish function space – its loft–style roof beams give away its humble beginnings as a carpenter’s workshop. Add to this a strictly minimalist dĂ©cor you are left with an elegant space in which to create your own perfect event. The Brindley Room is beautiful on its own but can be brought to life with fairy lights, floral accents or coloured uplighters. It comes complete with all the facilities your guests will need. A perfect space for any time of year!

The Gallery Bar and Balcony

As the name suggests, the space is comprised of a mezzanine gallery within Dukes 92. Recently refurbished in a modern and comfortable style this is the perfect location for smaller receptions and events. The eaves of the old stable block provide a wonderful intimacy, whilst the spectacular new external balcony overlooks Dukes 92’s bustling forecourt with impressive views over the Castlefield Basin.
