Dukes 92

1 user review 4

Perched on the edge of Deansgate Locks, the garden at Dukes 92 is a spectacle to behold. Designed with lazy summer days in mind, this vast outdoor dining space is the perfect place to get stuck into one of the many delicious sharing boards that are on offer.

Fancy jetting off to Spain, but not so keen on the airfare? Cue El Gato Negro - the Manchester city centre spot serving up a mouthwatering selection of tapas dishes. Spread over three floors, head upstairs to check out the retractable roof and incredible views over Manchester's higgledy-piggledy skyline.

One of Manchester's best-loved boozers, The Wharf is situated on the edge of Bridgewater Canal. A heaving spot come the summer months, the huge waterfront beer garden here is the perfect place to enjoy some top-notch pub grub and an ice-cold glass of Pimm's.

Terrace NQ

Decked out with quirky vintage furniture, old gymnasium flooring and exposed brick walls, Terrace NQ is one of the city's coolest spots. A true hidden gem, the terrace here is a real suntrap with plenty of homemade pizzas and local craft beers on offer to keep you well fed and watered.

Located in the heart of Manchester, The Ape & Apple is the ideal pitstop after a long day of exploring the city. With friendly locals, monthly-changing ales and a secret terrace out the back, this place ticks all of our summertime boxes.
