Best Bar 2014 - DesignMyNight Awards

Kosmonaut located in the Northern Quarter is one of Manchester’s smoothest and coolest hangouts. Tucked down a side street you might be pressed to find it, but once you do you’ll be very pleased that you made the effort.

Inside the décor speaks for itself with leather booth seating surrounding a large tiled bar that brings back memories from all manner of classic film scenes. Exposed pipes and brickwork make Kosmonaut look the part and adds a certain American-style swagger to this cool Manchester cocktail bar. You can also take a seat in some novelty retro barber shop chairs near the window that add to the cool kitsch side of this bar.

Kosmonaut serves up a fantastic American inspired food menu as well as one of the best Sunday lunches in Manchester. The beer selection at Kosmonaut is also very impressive with lagers and ales from around the globe gracing their beer fridges and taps. So whether you’re after a fruit beer from Belgium or an Indian Pale Ale from the west coast of America, you can find it at Kosmonaut. Perfect for drinks with friends in a cool and trendy space with a good buzz, Kosmonaut will live up to its hype and provide a great evening in the heart of Manchester. Book your table online now for food or drinks, or even hire out the fantastic basement space for your private party. 

Over the next few months Kosmonaut will be serving a series of barrel smoked cocktails using a small oak cask to mature signature spirits and create a new and distinctive body to each iconic tipple. At £8.50 a pop, taste the evolution of these cocktails procured from before and after the prohibition era for some customised drinking escapades.

  • A word from the chef:

    From their pulled pork burger at £8.00 with fries, down to their chilli beef dog at £7 with sour cream, dishes at Kosmonaut are just as party hearty as the atmosphere, and at affordable prices at that.
