Sometimes it's easier to escape the glitz and glamour of central Manchester and venture further out to the fast-rising suburbs. Rusholme is growing fast with a great selection of bars and restaurants on the horizon and student haunt - Varsity - is no exception. 

As part of the popular Varsity chain this bar knows how to throw a party. The staff here are wonderfully friendly, and will often stop for a chat when delivering you food or taking an order. The menu serves up a fantastic selection of delicious bar snacks including the highly recommended curly fries if you're looking to eat on the go. The food is simple, and plentiful in portion sizes. To wash down your food then take advantage of the bar's extremely reasonable drink prices with daily deals on all spirits and cocktails.

If it's large flat-screen TVs you need for all your sporting desires then you're in luck as Varsity has a few dotted around the bar. It does normally get busy on football days though so head down early to catch a seat. If you are looking for somewhere to hold a party, Varsity can cater for anything from a small get-together to larger birthday or office parties with a Party Package that suits your every need.
