Gaucho Manchester

Gaucho is a beautiful restaurant bar in Manchester for its sheer opulence, from the grand dining room to the large chandeliers . Plus, the cowhide accents bring a contemporary feel to the Argentinian steakhouse, which is a firm fave for its succulent bites, fine wine and cocktails.

The Lawn Club

One of the prettiest bars in Manchester also happens to be one of its most sought-after in the summer months. A gorgeous Spinningfields staple, The Lawn Club features comfy beanbag seats, private dining pods and oh-so quirky greenhouses for you and your group.  

With its pink and teal colour scheme, stylish light fixtures and marble-topped bar, Cocoa Cabana Ancoats is one of the prettiest places to drink in town. Stop by for indulgent chocolate cocktails and longstanding favourites paired with brunch bites, fresh cakes and afternoon tea.

The definition of a botanical beaut, Menagerie is just as much of an experience as it is a restaurant and bar. Head on down for cutesy features, stunning patterns, intricate design features and plush marble in this high-end and oh-so-attractive setting.

It may be one of the biggest celebrity hangouts in the city, but it also happens to be one of the prettiest locations too. From the sweeping white lines to the subtle intro of plants, head over for the stunning gastro grub at Rosso but stay for the interiors.

It's all about the roof terrace at this bar and restaurant, though all of its floors are working it. When the sun is shining, grab a seat at the top of the building as quickly as possible so you can experience tapas and wine that's so good, you'd easily think you had been transported to Spain.
