Impossible is one of the weirder things dreamt up by Manchester. Spread across three floors, this is a part-bar, part-restaurant, and part-immersive theatre nightlife experience. When you're not being dazzled by performers or drinking molecular cocktails from their laboratory, you can feast on delicious grill food in their restaurant. Afterwards, see if you can find the hidden gin palace.

From the upside-down canoe suspended from the ceiling through to the abundance of small plates, Wolf at the Door might be a new addition to the city's dining scene, but its delicious small plates are already making a splash. Tucked away in the Northern Quarter, this is one for the foodies, with the likes of IPA onions and pickled green strawberries gracing the menu.
