Media City Bars and Restaurants

MediaCity is a gleaming, towering wonder of a thing that boasts some of the prettiest views that you'll find so close to Manchester city center. Look even closer and you'll also discover some perfect bars to hole up and take in the hustle and bustle of the UK's newest media hub, or to ingest a few aperitifs in prior to seeing a show at the Lowry Theatre. If your looking for cool bars in Manchester but fancy something a bit different from the usual Manchester nightlife, MediaCity is the the place for you.

Sorry, the places listed below don't have online bookings available, but we hope you still find this list useful for your night out!

Lime at The Lowry Outlet Mall in Salford Quays manages to be smart, affordable and relaxed all at once, with a breezy bar terrace with lots of room for when the sun is shining. As Lime sits just outside the entrance to the Lowry Outlet Mall and Theatre, it's the ideal spot for a pre-theatre meal or some refreshment after a long day of shopping. Add venue hire and Cocktail masterclasses to the list of things that Lime has to offer, and it really does do it all.
