What they say:
There are plenty of stunning Chorlton bars, that we all know; but the newest addition to the Manchester suburbs, The Jackalope, is set to wow visitors with a concept not yet seen in South Manchester. The Jackalope started life as a secret cellar bar in London's trendy Stoke Newington area last year; but the concept has been moved up North, and we think it's going to be a real hit. Owners Rob Loader and Lee Gorton have billed The Jackalope as an "evocative parlour bar", promising innovative events, great live music and lots of ale, and who can say no to all that?
The promise of live music is already looking good with gigs from The Lost Brothers, Klara Soderberg (First Aid Kit), Paddy Steer, Pete Greenwood and The Ramshackle Union Band already lined up. With weekend DJs also on the agenda and a Wednesday open mic night, The Jackalope looks set to really deliver on its promise of innovative events. The bar is another killer feature of The Jackalope; teaming up with local breweries to deliver well sourced and great tasting beers and ales. Food-wise you are also going to be in for a treat; expect a top range of pies delivered daily and crafted by Stockport's own Lord of the Pies.
