Conveniently located in the heart of Manchester's business district, just a stone's throw away from Piccadilly Gardens and a host of other Manchester bars, The Bank is a traditional pub serving up a wide selection of handpicked real ales, wines, cocktails and quality pub grub in the grand surroundings of the city's former Portico Library. More concerned with books than banking; the library building dates from 1806 (fact fans take note), and is one of the city's best examples of neo-classical architecture, which has nothing to do with the booze itself - but it's certainly a welcome touch.
The library still exists upstairs, while the building's grand atrium is given over to after-work types for the purpose of drinking, socialising and eating in what's surely one of the most beautiful bars in Manchester. There's a great range of real ales on draught - with an ever changing choice of handpicked guest beers to choose from. You'll also find a wide selection of reasonably priced wines and tasty cocktails. Feeling peckish? Diners can choose between quick bar snacks, or a more formal meal in the pub's adjoining dining room. With its convenient location, beautiful surroundings and extensive food and drink menu, The Bank makes an ideal option for relaxed drinking and dining, day or night.
