The Blue Pig bar is a cool European-style drinking den with an alluring atmosphere, nestled right in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Set in an impressive Victorian building with huge original windows, iron chandeliers, antique features, dark wood, graffiti by local artists and the famous blue pig strolling on the ceiling, Blue Pig counts as of the finest of drinking establishments of the city.  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 and seasonal locally sourced meats, but there are also vegetarian alternatives for the non-carnivorous amongst you.  On top of this there is an excellent selection of everything boozy including lovingly created house cocktails, 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.
