Every 1st Monday of the month


Sometimes it's the most unassuming entrances that conceal the best bars around; hidden treasures that once discovered you can’t decide whether to tell the world about or keep it a secret for it is with Proof cocktail bar in Chorlton. It bills itself as ‘city centre drinking in the suburbs’ and it’s not far off, with locals and young professionals enjoying a great range of Classic and signature cocktails (such as the Starbucked Martini - an adult mocha shaken with espresso, rum and hazelnut liqueur). Don't forget about their amazing seasonal menus for both food and cocktails.

That said, the ambience is far more relaxed than most city-centre cocktail joints, table service is offered each evening and staff knowledge is superb - plus the quality in no way suffers for being out of town. There's even a large, attractive terrace out front for al fresco drinks and nibbles. Proof have won awards for both their cocktails and wine selections (they have a wine club that you can drop into on the first Monday of the month) and their imported beers are seriously impressive. The food is delicious; stomach-lining light-bites with many ingredients sourced from local Chorlton delis - all in all Proof is a great little place, and perfect for parties as they offer cocktail masterclasses for groups of six or more! Easily one of the best bars in Chorlton - book your table now using the form above to try it for yourself!

Lips That Touch Liquor at Proof Chorlton Review: Whisky

Lips That Touch Liquor at Proof Chorlton Review: Whisky

Here at DesignMyNight Manchester, we know that whisky isn't for the faint-hearted and can be a bit of a Marmite spirit. So that's why they sent me, a hardened whisky fan whose dram-loving roots lay in tastings at Grant's True Tales in Manchester's...
