From Mexican tequila bars to comedy clubs and Pie cafe’s, Manchester’s Northern quarter is the trendy hipster hub of Manchester city centre. With independent little bars to large warehouse style nightclubs, the alternative and bohemian Northern Quarter is an ideal location for those looking to stay out until the early hours.
However, if going out isn’t for you, then the Northern Quarter is also perfect for casual dinner dates or catch-up drinks with friends. The Northern Quarter also has a lot to offer during the daytime. From shopping in vintage boutiques to buying gifts from the quirky little art and craft design shops, there is something for everyone.
Bars often feature live music at the weekends, or DJs later on in to the night; whilst spending a night in the Northern Quarter you can experience Manchester’s music scene to its full potential. Located directly behind Piccadilly gardens, the Northern Quarter is easily accessible and is central to the main attractions within this vibrant city.
New pop-up bars are opening regularly within the Northern Quarter as its popularity grows within Manchester’s nightlife scene. Despite the quirky little bars being great fun, the original venues are still, in many ways, deemed to be the best of the bunch. Dry Bar or Matt and Phreds are both venues that are notorious for showcasing the best live music within the area. If it’s a cheeky cocktail you are looking for, award winning bar Apotheca have long held the crown for some of the best around. The newer bar Dusk til Pawn also has a great cocktail menu; that’s if you can find the discrete, well-hidden venue along the cobble roads. Alternatively, the Wine Dukebox at Bakerie Bar is well worth a visit for fantastic offers on a variety of house wines. For the best Manchester brewed real ale you could visit Marble Bar, located at 57 Thomas Street.
Clayton Hotel Manchester Airport is a perfect stop over when visiting the Northern Quarter in Manchester’s city centre. Transport links between the two run throughout the day until late at night so for those who wish to make the most of this vibrant and exciting community, getting back does not have to be a worry.
