Tusk brings a slice of Africa to the Northern Quarter, with tribal surroundings and a vibrant atmosphere. It may be small, but it has a big attitude.

This intimate cocktail bar is the perfect stop for after-work drinks, a cozy evening with friends or the start to a big night on the town. Tusk’s interior is a combination of ethnic and earthy materials, with exposed brick and warm hues to entice you in and make you feel at home.

Delicious cocktails are crafted with care and attention to detail and with Tusk’s own in- house fusions and blends. Meticulously made to ensure that you experience a drink like no other. The new menu has a great range of chilled out dining options with everything from pizzas, to sliders and sharing platters, burgers to fish and chips.

Tusk is a great space for larger groups to gather for drinks after work and enjoy sharing platters or canapés with cocktails. Cocktail masterclasses, private parties and networking events also prove incredibly popular in this versatile space.
