City Centre Bar Crawl
Manchester offers bespoke bars, fine wines and a range of cocktails to rival the high stakes capital London. Finding them though, takes skill, stamina and determination - or, you could just hop on our whistle stop tour of Manchester city centre! From high end hotels, a grade II listed celebrity hang out, and the dossier dives packed out with students, we've touched every base to bring you the ultimate list of bars for any occasion, all within a square mile! Or thereabouts.

If you're still on the trail, we've come to Oxford Road where Manchester really lets its hair down. This fun filled and vodka fueled bar breaks out into a wild party come the late hours, and is the perfect place to grab a pitcher or a fab offer on drinks. Loud and proud, the typical mainstream chart music blasts through speakers as groups of students and 20 somethings are out in force to have a good time. We like to grab a generous helping of Strawberry Woo Woo and hit the dance floor.
A few doors down we reach the last stop on our journey. Popular indie and alternative tracks play as you work your way through a list of drinks, shots and bombs. If you're scouring your pockets for change by now, this is the best place to be, as cocktails start from as little as £2! Impossible, I hear you cry but they do genuinely contain a real serving of alcohol, or two. Dance the rest of the night away or gather around one of the long tables and find yourselves laughing and joking about the great times you've had in Manchester.
A hop, skip and a jump away from King Street. Oozing class and brimming with bars, you'll find a new favourite at every turn. Playing cool beats in a relaxed environment, sip premium spirits or unique cocktails in this stylish venue. Having just launched a whole new range of cocktails, take advantage of their 2 for £11 offer and tuck into their huge variety of martinis; green tea, raspberry and passion fruit, white chocolate or chocolate orange, there's something to please everyone in your pack!
Who is Mr Cooper? We've never met him either but Simon Rogan has come out on top with this fabulous setting. Part of The Midland Hotel, it attracts a more upmarket kind of crowd, only top notch tipples and affluent interior can be expected in here. A long, informative wine list cuts to the chase and guides you to your perfect bottle, whilst a divine range of signature cocktails will have you glued to your seat. As the night gets into full swing, why not order their Autumn Punch for four? Served with china tea cups, it's irresistibly cute!
