Best Terraces in Manchester

While the definition of 'terrace' is roughly, and utterly, translated in to 'level paved area next to a building', our definition stands something along the lines of 'drinky, boozy, lovely, sunshiney, seaty area'. Plotted about the city, these sun-soaked spots are a hubbub of activity; whether they host cracking views, charming young patrons, cool concoctions or botanical spaces. Check out our recommendations for some of the best drinking terraces in Manchester.

Dukes 92

1 user review 4

One of the biggest spaces in the city to wet your whistle, the terrace here is a thing of beauty. Plotted next to the canal and surrounded by industrial charm, Dukes 92 has made something of a name for itself when it comes to alfresco drinks in Manchester.

The Ape & Apple

Hole up in style as Deansgate's The Ape & Apple welcomes you for cask ales, pub grub and beer garden vibes. As well as being child and dog-friendly, there's live music, quizzes and sports screenings through the week. 

Patty princesses and burger boys, we're sure you already know that Almost Famous is one of Manchester's most infamous junk food haunts. But did you know they've got an outdoor terrace? For fresh air, cocktails, and some of the most ambitious buns in the business, this is the place.

Terrace NQ

Situated on Thomas Street, Terrace NQ is perfect all year around. Expect mouthwatering plates and classic cocktails with a stripped back terrace and a soundtrack of live DJs spinning the likes of funk and soul through the week.
