This sports bar in Manchester has more than you think when it comes to entertainment. Not only showing sports on the screen, they've got indoor golf booths (obviously), as well as an Xbox One, pool, fussbool, and even a private karaoke booth to boot. Round that off with great beer and a great beer garden and you're in for a treat.
