The Blue Pig bar is a cool European-style drinking den nestled in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Transporting you to the heydey of 1930s Parisian cafe culture with antique features, dark wood and an alluring atmosphere. Laid-back yet lush, The Blue Pig is amorous come sundown, not only making it dapper for any deluxe date night, but a cosy and intimate drink once the working day is over.

As you might expect from a place called The Blue Pig, various meaty options are available to eat including tasty burgers, seasonal cuts of meat and steaks, but there are also a few salads and vegetarian alternatives such as Falafel for the non-carnivorous amongst you; try something from the in-house delicatessen, featuring daily made house breads, terrines, patés, dips & oils, plus cured meats and cheeses sourced everywhere from local farms to Italian fattorias. On top of this there are also daily changing specials and a week day happy hour on cocktails from 5-7pm, so there's something for everyone at this popular Manchester bar and restaurant.

One of Manc's best bar this one. The food is really good. The burgers are always really tasty and the selection of drinks and cocktails is also defintely worth the trip.
