You want to watch the football in Manchester on a floor to ceiling projector in your own private room with friends? You got it. Want to watch it in the main bar with the crowd? You got it. Whatever you want, this excellent Sports Bar just around the corner from Piccadilly Train station has enough TV screens to screen all of the Premier League and International games.
Less tucked away, more heard from the sound of stein glasses clinking, Manchester Bierkeller is the hustle and bustle of any good German inspired beer den, with some Manchester attitude thrown in for good measure. Not only can you watch it in the beer hall, but the Shooters sports bar means Premier matches and cup games alike can be enjoyed.
Make sure you don’t head to the Northern Quarter one, because it’s the New Wakefield Street branch that has footie on the brain. Watch the game on their HD projector screen in the covered roof terrace (with all the matches from Sky Sports and BT), and at half time you can play a game of pool or two.
One of the cosiest and most comfortable pubs in the city is also a great place to watch football. You can’t wear your colours here, so it’s also one of the friendliest places around, and their tasty food and great beer selection makes this Manchester football pub an absolute dream.
Bringing a little bit of glitz and glamour to Match Day, Manchester235 shows major sporting events on giant screens. Enjoy a range of cocktails or premium beers while you watch the game, and maybe indulge in a little gaming (the casino kind, mind) of your own once the final whistle's blown at this top bar to watch the football in Manchester.
Perfect for dancing the night away, the venue is also kicked out with large screen TVs, showcasing all the latest live sporting events from across the world. So grab a drink, get comfy and watch on their big screen as the world's best football teams do what they do best each weekend.
The Courtyard has that easy-going yet fun atmosphere that everyone looks for when hunting for a place to watch football in Manchester. Boasting delicious pub grub food, and screens playing all the matches (especially good on Derby day), their crowning achievement is their incredibly cheap beer.
Not only is this football bar in Manchester called Café Football, but it’s run by a bunch of the Manchester United Class of ’92 boys, so you could say football is on their mind. Sat in the Museum of Football, you can get some delicious food while watching a match (though maybe don’t wear your City colours), and they boast more than just lager: with global wines and craft beers from dozens of countries.
One of the Manchester locals' favourite places to catch a game. Tib Street Tavern is one the best Northern Quarter bars, offering a stylish approach to football. With plenty of comfy couches, leather booths and plasma televisions nobody has to miss out. If you're bringing along someone who is less football enthusiastic then the bar/pub offers a quieter, no football zone.
