This former auction house is quickly becoming one of the most popular quirky bars in Manchester, thanks to its bright pink gig space, industrial rooftop and beer garden terrace space to boot. You can grab pizza slices or vegan doner kebabs, all washed down with affordable pints and heady concoctions.

Terrace NQ

Terrace NQ is a rooftop haunt framed by exposed brick walls and a distinctive stripped-back look. When the clouds part, you can relax with a range of locally sourced ales and beers, making it one incredible spot to unwind after a hard day of work. 

Get your fix of potent cocktails and craft beers at The Con Club, a drinking and dining den in Altrincham. Not only does it have an on-site microbrewery and hidden rooftop tipi, which offers views across the market area, but it's also got a great menu of sushi and seafood if you get peckish.

The Ape & Apple

A proper Deansgate boozer, The Ape & Apple offers all the quirks of a traditional pub with a few modern touches. Think wood panelling and cosy interiors alongside a spacious roof terrace, making it a top pick out of outdoor bars in Manchester.

The luxurious Hotel Gotham harbours a secret - and that's one of the swankiest rooftop cocktail bars in Manchester. While only open to hotel guests and members, this intimate retreat is the ultimate location for concoctions and bubbly with plenty of stunning views.
