What’s the best thing about living in Manchester?

The people and the creativity, even the weather sometimes. I love that there are so many diverse cultures in such a small area.

Favourite bar in Manchester:

Kosmonaut on Tariff Street is one of my favourite bars, mainly due to its extensive beer menu and its outstanding Sunday lunch - seriously one of the best in Manchester.

Favourite pub in Manchester:

I would have to say Port Street Beer House (I think its classed as a pub) just for the huge range of beers on offer. The Castle is a very very close second though

Favourite club or club night in Manchester: 

Not an all and out club but 2022NQ ticks all the boxes musically. Even though I co-own it it would still be a place I would go if I didn’t. Greg Wilson on NYE was possibly the best night out I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a fair few! 

Secret tip:

Vivid Lounge on Great Ancoats Street deliver breakfasts to your apartment at the weekend. Need I say more…
