Winter has officially arrived in Manchester, and in between the lashings of rain and gale-force winds, we're going all-out après. Following on from a gorgeous summer installation, swanky rooftop bar 20 Stories has erected giant snow globes for its Après In The Sky terrace. The huge, transparent structures occupy the bar's outside terrace, and along with views over the city, the pods are decked out with faux fur throws, retro skis, hanging sledges and heaters to keep you toasty.
There's also a winter-perfect menu boasting a selection of cocktails created in partnership with Monkey 47 gin. Brave the chill with tipples inspired by the Black Forest in Germany, and their take on a mulled wine. When it comes to food, the restaurant will be serving a more casual menu of terrace platters and bar snacks.
20 Stories' Après In The Sky is available for private hire and walk-ins until 23rd January 2022. Find it at No 1 Spinningfields, 1 Hardman Square, Manchester, M3 3EB. If you like this, then you'll love our list of Manchester's best things to do this winter.
