The Whiskey Jar

1 user review 4

It's all in the name kids, really. A top-notch nook for those that like their liquid wares with a bite, this bar boasts some of the best of a whiskey in Manchester. Housed within a Grade II listed building, The Whiskey Jar totes one of the biggest selections of scotch, bourbon, malt... you name it, they've got it.

Port St. Beer House

2 user reviews 4

Equipped with a mind-boggling range of British, European and world beers, the Port St. Beer House is one of the watering holes in town. Smart yet traditional inside, this is definitely a bar and not a pub. Soak up the relaxed atmosphere with after-work drinkers revelling in the extensive beer and ale list.
