The Dockyard

A little bit more laid back than some of Manchester's glitziest, but nonetheless charming, you'll have to sally on out of the city centre for this destination. Just the ticket if you fancy meeting clients halfway. An industrial theme bar with rustic flair and pub style charm, The Dockyard is not only an attractive drinking affair, it's a more than reasonable price, especially if you're footing the meeting bill.
