Three Little Words

284 user reviews 5

Hidden away beneath the railway arches of Weston Street, Three Little Words is the restaurant that's located within the Spirit of Manchester distillery - the brainchild of gin-iuses at Manchester Gin. Boasting industrial-style interiors and warm glowing lights, the menu here is made up of brunch classics, mouthwatering small plates and hearty mains.

The Liquor Store

121 user reviews 4

Often forgotten between the ambush of dazzling Deansgate nightclubs and bars, The Liquor Store is quietly tucked away behind Deansgate's main drag. Famed for its tasty cocktails and relaxing atmosphere, this bar pay homage to its inspiration of Los Angeles. A great place to escape the Manchester madness and unwind. 

The Font Manchester

2 user reviews 4

Font is one of Manchester's most-loved venues. What is there to argue with? An impeccable cocktail list that starts from as little as £2 each. Then of course it has an amazing food menu, with fast service, all for the sum of a very small price. It can get busy as weekend calls especially with the nearby student nightlife though with two floors it shouldn't affect your plans too much.

A brilliantly moody atmosphere with fantastic drinks and friendly people, it's everything you could want from a Manchester bar.
