History - Finlay’s Warehouse is a grade 2 listed cotton warehouse built in two phases (between 1870 and 1892). The name derives from the original company name, Finlay Campbell and Co Ltd, who were a Scottish firm operating from Manchester and India. Like many of the buildings in this area of Manchester, originally they were used as warehouses for shipping and the clothing industry. The large entrance on Mangle Street, known as the hovel was created to allow deliveries directly into the building rather than blocking the street. The industry in the area declined in the mid 20th century, leav- ing many of these formidable buildings neglected. 56 Dale Street received a new lease of life in 1975 went it became the famous Foo Foo’s Palace night club, owned by the flamboyant drag queen Frank Foo Foo Lammar, it was a Manchester institution for over 25 years playing host to countless celebrities and attracting people from all over the country.
