Three Little Words


Voted "Best Bar Team of The Year" by Top 50 Cocktail Bars.

Three Little Words is like nowhere else in the city. Nestled within beautifully renovated brick arches, just seconds from Deansgate, settle into the city's renowned distillery bar for incredible cocktails and fine dining.

From the founders of Manchester Gin, Three Little Words and The Spirit of Manchester Distillery sit alongside one another, so you can enjoy gorgeous drinks while watching life in the distillery. Showcasing the full Manchester Gin range, there are some truly wonderful gin cocktails on offer here, but there's far more than gin - a curated back bar, a magnificent cocktail list, and a perfectly paired food menu.

Heavenly roast dinners are served every Sunday from 12pm. Select from a choice of four dishes, including roast beef and a weekly vegan special, served with all the trimmings, homemade gravy and towering Yorkshire puddings.
