Tucked away in a basement just off Deansgate, this hidden Manchester gem is a secret that's well worth discovering. Venture away from the main drag of Deansgate bars and you'll discover a cool, unpretentious crowd enjoying great Manchester music, fantastic cocktails and a great atmosphere late into the night, every night of the week.

With its discreet side street location, small frontage and a blackboard on the pavement, Cord may not seem like much, but step inside and enjoy one of the best hidden bars in Manchester. With a cheeky basement 'vault' bar to make it even more special, Cord is a Northern Quarter gem not to be missed.
