Bourbon, rum and ribs: if that sounds like your idea of paradise, that's because you've found one of the coolest bars in Manchester. Cane and Grain offers three separate experiences, from their first floor swanky cocktail bar offering crazy concoctions, their ground floor Rib Joint offering huge plates of food, to their secret tiki den The Liars Club, where rum and great times are to be found.
