The Gin Society is back and this time, it's heading to Manchester Cathedral for a botanical-based pop-up. Think boozy tastings, classic street food, banging live music and more in the city centre.

One of the city's best hidden boozy gems, Dusk til Pawn is a drinking cavern of cool cocktails and sweet vibes. Bypass their pawn shop frontage in the Northern Quarter and head on inside to a speakeasy style boozer where slick interiors, inventive concoctions and fun vibes reign supreme.
