One of the original and most popular drinking dens in Manchester's Northern Quarter, Odd Bar has been bringing great booze and fabulous food to the area for over a decade. There are two bars, one downstairs, one upstairs serving real local ales, wines, an array of handpicked spirits, lovingly created cocktails and some tasty food to tuck into. What is so unique about this bar is its ability to be eccentric and stylish while avoiding pretension. Bare brickwork, random pieces of artwork, taxidermy, and a mixture of upholstery all contribute to the 'odd' theme of the bar, but even amongst the busy décor its not hard to see this bar still has a beating heart.
The warm, inviting atmosphere makes it a great spot to chill out with friends and family in a comfortable atmosphere. The upstairs area also has a great view of the streets below, so you can watch the world go by as you sit cosily by the window. There are plenty of free events to enjoy, with Quizimodo bringing weird and wonderful rounds of knowledge and silliness every Wednesday, Open Mic inviting the city's best talent on stage bi-weekly on Tuesdays, Ode showcasing live poetry on the 3rd Thursday of the month, and weekend DJs filling up the upstairs dancefloor with superb party tunes on Fridays and Saturdays. Local songsmiths The Wicked Path invite musician friends along every Sunday for a night of free live Americana & Blues - the perfect way to wrap up the weekend!
And if you just can't get enough Odd, head to sister bar Oddest in Chorlton.

A word from the chef:
Mouth watering sharers, sandwhiches, burgers, breakfasts and more. Our new menu has a fresh, summery grill feel to it. And on Mondays, all food is half price all day.
With so many new bars opening up in the Northern Quarter it's easy to overlook the old school haunts which made this part of Manchester one of the coolest places to be seen. Odd falls into that category – with two other venues spread across...
