Manchester is a city of secrets, but what about secret bars? Hidden behind a launderette, confuse your date by leading them to the tumble dryers, and straight past into a cocktail bar. Elusive and chocka with interesting mixes, The Washhouse is sure to be a top talking point for you both. 

Sure, your partner may be sceptical about its exterior, but you'll certainly win them over once inside – in fact, you'll literally be kids in a candy shop. Quirky dates here come complete with neon lights, exposed brick and shelves filled with retro sweets, slushies and cocktails galore.
