Cottonopolis – Manchester
‘Cocktails are all about those little moments: whether we are celebrating, commemorating, or just taking an hour out of life’s hectic schedule to sit and treat ourselves and our friends’ – THIS! We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, cocktails are all about those little moments and Cottonopolis is the perfect backdrop to relax and unwind with one of their spectacular concoctions.

Bunny Jackson’s – Manchester
OK, this isn’t what traditionally springs to mind when you think of a cocktail bar, this is an old-school dive bar where live music, American bites and good times are the order of the day. But to hell with tradition, get us to Bunny Jackson’s any day of the week! Their ‘fancy cocktails’ are the bomb and their 10p wings are, well, 10p!
📍 1 Jack Rosenthal Street, Manchester M15 4RA
Dockleaf – Liverpool
When life stings you like the big proverbial stinging nettle that it is, Dockleaf provides that much-needed comfort to soothe those aches and pains. This urban cocktail joint has a relaxed, chilled out atmosphere and boasts an ever-changing range of cocktails to keep things interesting and we love it. We’d move in if we could but, apparently, that just isn’t feasible.
📍 Cains Brewery Village, Stanhope Street, Liverpool, L8 5XJ
Santa Chupitos – Liverpool
We were sold at ‘cocktail emporium’! Santa Chupitos is the gift that keeps on giving (Santa, gifts?! Get it?! Funny, right?). These guys never stand still; they’re always on the hunt for that next incredible flavour combo that will dazzle your taste buds and send your worries flying out the door. With classics and seasonal concoctions, they’re revolutionising the cocktail game forever.

Beach House – Blackpool
‘Let’s go to the beach, each, let’s go get away…’ We hear you, Nicki! Obviously, she was talking about Blackpool beach and the reason she was so keen to head there was to sample the fab cocktails on offer at the Beach House. Kick back on the terrace with one of their brilliant creations and watch the waves roll in. Truly idyllic.
