Manchester is a 'city you need to know' 
Issue 03 of Wallpaper Navigator* selects "seven cities you need to know", the fourth of which is Manchester. There are 14 pages on the city including architecture, culture, eating out and shopping. The contribution of Factory Records towards the city's reputation is made more than once including the following:

"This is also the city that set the world's clubbing scene alight with the opening of the legendary Hacienda nightclub in 1982, designed by Ben Kelly, with graphics by Peter Saville. Today, all that's left of the Hacienda is an apartment block, although Manchester's club scene is still thriving."

The other cities you need to know are Beirut, Buenos Aires, Hamburg, Montreal, Stockholm and Valencia.
