Trof Northern Quarter


Trof in the Northern Quarter is a Manchester staple and attracts clientele from all walks of life in Manchester. Although in the trendy hub of the Northern Quarter expect to see some after-work drinkers before the party really kicks off. With three floors and a smoking terrace, Trof has space in abundance and when full provides a great buzz that will keep all visitors well entertained.

Trof has a simple yet classic cocktail menu as well as a good range of beers and wines; a unique feature is however that they have their own beer and wine, branded Trof. This is a good feature for any bar and as it comes at a lower cost than your big breweries and adds an even more affordable alternative to the menu.

Trof Northern Quarter is a good venue for an evening of chilling with mates; the late license till 3am on Friday and Saturday also means you don’t have to leave too early and can party till late.
