Situated in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Walrus is one of the original, pioneering cocktail bars to first land on the High Street.

The ideal after-work destination to kick back and relax with colleagues and friends to enjoy a great selection of quality wines, spirits or beers and a cocktail list bursting at the seams. The stylish surroundings, with a copper and wood theme and large comfy booths, offer the perfect place to relax with a drink, whilst sharing delicious food.

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! At the weekend Walrus comes alive with music lovers who want to party hard as it plays host to some of Manchester’s finest DJs, spinning everything from house to garage and RnB.

Revelers can enjoy the main bar upstairs or venture downstairs to the secret basement bar. And Walrus can host ‘chilled out’ as well as it does a party, providing a platform for live music and acoustic sets on the small but perfectly formed staging area. Booths can be reserved for those after-work drinks with colleagues, and the private bar downstairs is ideal for mixology sessions, VIP parties and corporate events.
