Every Wednesday


The Bay Horse warmly invites you to come and enjoy a variety of live music and DJ nights as well as a fantastic kitchen offering hearty pies, delicious Knackebrod pizzas, homemade chunky houmous and chips and a killer Sunday roast. The bottled beer selection is ever growing and changing, and this popular Northern Quarter bar has a great wine offer available during the week for some cheap after work drinks in Manchester. 

With free pool every Monday from 5pm till 11pm, open mic every Wednesday, free gigs every Friday and Saturdays hosting vinyl only sets from DJs Craig Johnson & Ian Scott, there's something for everyone on every night of the week at this cool NQ hang out. The Bay Horse can get pretty busy due to its popularity, so it makes a sense to reserve your drinks table in advance ahead of your visit. Just use the form above!

The Bay Horse's cool basement venue is also available for private hire, making a great spot for events or birthday parties. Make your free reservation using the online form at the top of this page.
