Situated on James Brindley Walk and the Cambrian Wharf canal basin, The Flapper sits neatly at the side of the hustle and bustle of Westside and Brindley Place and located a stones throw away from the Utilita Arena, ICC and Symphony Hall, The Flapper is the perfect place for a pre-show drink and bite to eat. A large, sun trap canal-side beer garden The Flapper is the perfect spot for Summer late night drinks with friends - or wrapping up warm in the Winter to take in the cosiness of the canals and narrowboat log burners.
