What they say:

This brand new concept of American style liquor store meets trendy Mancunian bar may seem a little confusing at first, but after hearing what they have in store for us it’s hard not to feel tingly with excitement. “Bare brickwork, vintage Los Angeles 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.”

The Liquor Store have worked hard to keep a strong sense of their Manchester heritage with a whole wall dedicated to celebrating the greats of the north east, such as the Gallagher brothers and even Les Dawson. If that isn't enough, they have also invented some quirky Manchester inspired cocktail names for you to take your pick from such as 'The Stone Rose' and 'Reverse Thyme Mojito' and will be providing a soundtrack blend of Indie, Rock 'n' Roll and classic Rock & Pop whilst you sip on your 'Jennings Cox Daiquiri'.

 Not only will The Liquor Store have a grand array of alcoholic beverages and quirky cocktails, they have also promised a stylish cafe environment during the day time, providing light lunches and coffee breaks to brighten up those boring lunch hours. There is even talk of a “Bloody Mary Buffet” to open on Sundays from 11am!

What we say:

Quirky, stylish and versatile, this creative cafe bar sounds like the perfect mix! We love the idea of American culture meets Manchester pride, and whether it’s a lunch date, cocktails with the girls, or a place to end your night out, The Liquor Store seems to accommodate for all of those things and more. It is open seven days a week from 11am-3am, so you could find yourself there more often than you first thought.

With the promise of the best liquors from across the world and a theme that celebrates everything we love about the city, we are pretty excited for The Liquor Store to open their doors to the public so we can get a real good look at the place... and the cocktail list! With offers such as 50% off all drinks and sharing platters between 5pm and 8pm weekly, it could potentially be the perfect place to start a night out.
