The Hacienda

The Hacienda (Fac 51) in Manchester was one of the greatest and most important nightclubs in the world. It was opened in 1982 by Factory Records and managed to survive till 1997 despite increasing financial pressure. The Hacienda was the centre of Madchester, and considered by some to be the birthplace of the 90s. Despite now being replaced by apartments, the site on Whitworth Street will forever be a site of huge importance to the global music scene.
