Dusk til Pawn

5 user reviews

It may be set right in the heart of Manchester's ever-growing Northern Quarter, but this former fortune teller's den isn't easy to find - which of course makes is the perfect destination to escape from the world. From the outside, an old fashioned pawn shop - with cluttered window displays covered by metal bars and filled with vintage TVs, radios and instruments. Though inside lies a moodily lit speakeasy with a secretive prohibition style feel and of course a superb selection of carefully constructed cocktails.
