I used to be the resident DJ at the Hacienda, 11 Whitworth St West, Manchester (061-236 5051), although I had to return to France for my national service. While I was in Manchester I travelled around the north of England a great deal. There's a beautiful restaurant in Chester called Franc's, Cuppin St (0244 317952), then in Altrincham there's a great place called The French, The Downs (061-941 3355). The people who run it also have a brasserie and a great hotel called the Grove Park Hotel, Park Rd, Bowdon (061-928 6191). I used to manage the kitchen at the Dry Bar, Oldham St, Manchester (061-236 5920) and I always pop in. As far as clubs go I've played all over the world. My all-time favourite is the Sound Factory in New York. In Europe its the E Werk in Berlin and Club Xcess in Frankfurt.
