The Northern Quarter has an abundance of traditional northern pubs and some of the most eclectic bars in the city. If you like your cocktail menus lengthy, a casual stroll around this area will impress.
Castlefield is glorious in summer as you can relax canal-side with a cool glass of white or delicious craft pint. The greenery and unique architecture attracts local Mancunians in need of a soak in the sun.
Saturday nights are made for hen-shenanigans, and Printworks is the go-to for glam clubs and fine hotel drinking amongst the younger generation in the city. Quench your thirst around Piccadilly, if you're looking for a casual but upbeat vibe. You won't be far from the electric Gay Village and Chinatown, too!
