Common in Manchester’s Northern Quarter is anything but - and for those in the know, it’s the hippest bar in the area; a hipster hangout that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

A great afternoon rendezvous with friends or just a mid-shop re-group, Common is a cool plot of marked simplicity, and slick interiors thanks to its slight Scandi inspired touch. Busy with the Northern Quarter's cool kids, Common is a charming bustle come sun down, and makes just the destination for dinner and drinks alike. Fancy an artsy dose? There's a regular rotation of exhibitions to boot.

Ready to woof down a meal? Tuck into sensibly sourced dishes and plucky plates as guests to Common can tuck into the likes of their Maple Bacon Burger for £9, a dashing roast hake with charred cauliflower and lentil dhal at the same £9 price, or small plates such as their beetroot cured salmon at £5.50. Drinks are a neat treat too, with international bottles of wine, and cocktails the likes of their Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita coming in at £7.

A word from the chef:
Bar snacks, cracking plates and light bites - mouthwatering burgers, fiery chilli, toasted sandwiches - and some great meal deals, too.
