MOJO Manchester

NYC-inspired loft bar MOJO is just the place if you want somewhere super cool to go for a drink. With a love of the best in rock 'n' roll music, they've got a hefty cocktail list to match, where potent Alabama slammers and rum-laced pours make up the menu.

Sure, a lot of bars can claim themselves mixologists, but there's something about Arcane that truly sticks. Not only does this place boast some of the unique cocktails in Manchester, but its brooding NY vibes, knowledgeable staff and date night charm makes it really stand out.

One of the best bars on Swan Street, Mecanica is your go-to spot for quality drinks. Whether you came for classics like sgroppinos and ramos fizzes, or something a little different, you can guarantee lowkey atmosphere and superb sips.

Dan Berger's Blinker not only offers mouthwatering libations and bar snacks, but the interior is a beaut too. Check out the Spring Gardens hub for green hues, intimate corners, and great chat from bartenders if you take a seat up top.
