With live music, an impressive cocktail menu and neon signs to boot, BLVD is a seriously luxe bar in Spinningfilds. Available for groups of up to six people, the spot also boasts a tasty food menu with bites such as crispy pork belly, vegetable tempura and maki rolls.

Along with takeaway and collection options, Simon Shaw's Canto has reopened the doors to the restaurant. Head here for late night dining on small plates like mushroom croquetas and beef steak with caramelised onion on caco bread, or check out Tipsy Tapas for dishes and bottomless fizz come the weekend.

El Gato Negro is back, bringing modern Spanish cuisine back to Manchester. Check ahead for opening times, as the restaurant initially launches from Thursday to Sunday. Expect slick booths and high-table seating in the ground floor bar, plus alfresco dining up on the rooftop.

Serving up their menu of Bombay comfort food and award-winning drinks, Dishoom is opening for bookings from 10th July. Not only can you skip the queue with reservations now available for groups of up to six, but there will also be socially-distanced measures in place for your safety.
