The vibe for the Factory Floor is that quirky night out where you can eat, drink, listen and dance all in one place, perfect for any occasion, or simply a weekend treat! You can even book a table in our popular restaurant and purchase a late entry ticket at a reduced price; however, these are limited. The QUARTER wants to bring that old fashioned cabaret style night out in its usual quirky style.
The Factory Floor @ the QUARTER Potbank is located in the original Spode Pottery Factory and has kept some of that industrial charm seen in the main restaurant, café and bar but has been given that live entertainment twist. The heritage of the site has really been highlighted within the space and has brought back to life the previously derelict factory floor.
Entry can be gained via the main car park, through the courtyard and past the museum. You will be taken through to the Factory Floor where your night of fun will begin. With on-site parking and easy access for taxis, you can dance the night away and safely plan your journey home. We even have an on-site hotel so if you’re travelling into us or want to make a weekend of it, then go to the POTBANK HOTEL WEBSITE to book your room now, then join us in the restaurant for breakfast. You can even then book in for our live music and woodfired pizza offering in the outdoor space. A weekend of fun all under one roof, and if you’re wanting to visit the city centre then join us at the QUARTER on Piccadilly for some delectable tapas and exquisite cocktails.
