Step through the palm trees and into this friendly Didsbury bar; unique in pretty much every way, the shabby chic wood floor was saved from an old gym! With top DJs and fresh food made everyday on site, Folk is a big hit with the locals. With banquette booths and a front terrace area, Folk is cool and trendy and caters perfectly for families by day and friends by night. A great bar nestled in South Manchester just waiting to be uncovered.

Comfy and welcoming by day, Electrik in Chorlton is down-to-earth and homely with newspapers and fresh cakes making it a haven. By night however, it all changes and Chorlton welcomes amazing shot combinations to create a buzzing nightspot. With a quality jukebox and amazing food, Electrik has an atmosphere that fits the city centre! One of South Manchester's most acclaimed bars, you'd be silly not to pay them a visit, day or night.

Wine and tapas in Chorlton, Bar San Juan is a slice of Spain in South Manchester. Great wine, great beer and a friendly vibe make this one of Manchester's coolest and quaintest bars. Also expect some live Spanish guitar and make your evening at Bar San Juan even more authentic.

Part of the highly successful chain, Trof Fallowfield knows how to do good food and even better drinks. Busy day and night, chef specials keep the menu fresh and Trof's own lager and wines give an affordable option to all the top beers, wines and spirits on offer. Trof Fallowfield also offers up some great live alternative music to keep visitors entertained; all this creates a welcoming and fun vibe that makes Trof one of South Manchester's must visit nightspots.
