The Liquor Store


The Liquor Store in the heart of the city centre has Mancunian roots running through its veins. Situated just off Deansgate, on the corner of Blackfrairs Street and Parsonage, we opened the doors in November 2012. Bare brickwork, vintage Liquor Store signage and a bar crammed with a collection of the most desirable liquors from around the globe are just some of the features waiting to greet as you enter.

Amongst the subtle nods towards American bar culture, the standout theme over both venues is the city of Manchester. The walls are dedicated to our city’s most loved exports with everyone from Liam & Noel, Ian Brown and Morrissey to Nobby Stiles, Davy Jones, The Bee Gees and even Les Dawson watching you as you drink. Passionate service from one of the city’s best bar teams delivers a whole host of cocktail creations such as St Hendrick’s Elderly Rose, Oasis and the famous The Walking Dead.

Quirky, original, creative but inherently stylish, just like the city itself. The bar ambience is transformed at 5pm with the help of its indie, rock’n’roll, classic rock and pop soundtrack blend, featuring more than a fair share of Mancunian favourites.

The Liquor Store’s intimate atmosphere and late opening hours, seven days a week showcase the true Manchester party spirit with deals for hospitality and industry workers. Twice winners of the Manchester Eat, Drink, Sleep awards for Best Late Night Venue – let us show you why!

The Liquor Store - Cocktail Bar Review

Considering it’s a stone’s throw from the City Centre, on the corner of Blackfriars Street just off Deansgate, The Liquor Store seems like a reasonably well kept secret. After opening in November 2012, its chilled mix of Manchester tunes, great cocktails and funky décor has meant it…
