Hold Fast


A nautical themed hangout has come to the Northern Quarter. Introducing Hold Fast; an intimate and broody joint scattered with maritime marvels and killer cocktails.

Inspired by the ocean deep and the tales of Jules Verne, stepping into this bar feels like you've discovered a travellers cove with concoctions from all over the globe. This one’s taking Manchester by storm, with cocktails like the Captain Cook Bramble Ramble and Colombus Courage made with the kind of craft and expertise that completely belies their very reasonable price tag. Only got time for one? Don’t let the Slippery Squid evade your clutches, it’s a punchy mix of Absolut Vod, Triple Sec, Crème De Peche and fresh Lemon Juice.

Happy Hour runs from 4 to 7pm every day when the friendly bar team chuck free toasties into the barter too. Adding to the cool ambiance of this bar, you'll find intimate movie screenings to everything from cult classics to big blockbusters.
