What’s the best thing about living in Manchester? 

There is just something special about Manchester - think it’s the great people and the musical heritage. 

Favourite bar in Manchester:

I think it would be have to be Common. Great music, food and a fine selection of booze.

Favourite pub in Manchester:

The Castle on Oldham Street for sure.

Favourite club or club night in Manchester:

Cutloose at the Roadhouse. There’s always an amazing party atmosphere... it’s dark, it’s dingy and there’s plenty of disco!

Secret tip: 

It would have to be the basement den of rum and cocktails that is Hula Tiki Lounge. Love the décor and vibe in there too!
