It doesn't exist 
Crosby Homes' development of the site of the Haçienda as the Haçienda Apartments continues apace and it looks like the new building will be open soon as these photos I took yesterday show. The new building has been voted one of the Top Ten Worst Buildings in Manchester by readers of the PrideOfManchester.com website. Naturally, the original Fac 51 The Hacienda was number four in the same website's sister poll the Top Ten Best Buildings in Manchester.

Back in 1984, the Hacienda celebrated its Second Birthday. The poster has been somewhat elusive but I grabbed a photo of the one hanging on the wall of Vinyl Revival, Colin White's excellent record shop in Hilton Street, Manchester.

The new Factory record shop was also open, but thanks to being delayed on the M6 on the way up and having to get to Edgeley Park for the Stockport County v QPR game (a 2-1 QPR win) I was unable to check it out.
