Manahatta Deansgate

597 user reviews 4

Bringing a slice of Manhattan to Manchester, this Deansgate hangout has gone all out on the NYC stylings. The huge space is home to a vast bar, dining area and private subterranean rooms. Think classic American cocktails and dishes in neon-lit surroundings.

You would be forgiven for forgetting you were in Central Manchester at all with this beautiful building. Grand Pacific is set in a historic space, and is themed around the tropics with high vaulted ceilings contrasted against golden, leaf chandeliers. Food is equally as unique, with everything from a Korean hot plate through to an Asian-inspired high tea.

Frequented by footballers and TV stars alike, Australasia is one of Manchester's most sought-after dining spaces. Look out for a glass pyramid near The John Rylands Library and head downstairs to a white beach club-style restaurant that specialises in Japanese dishes and slick cocktails.

It's all Turkish all the time, as Kai churns out a stunning menu of traditional grilled dishes and mezze. Whether you like a little lahmacun, a bit of shish or heaps of kanafeh, they've got it all in beautifully styled surroundings.

Positioned in Cutting Room Square, this chilled out spot is a great choice whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or after-work drinks that you're after. Food is inspired from countries all around the world, so you can expect an eclectic variety of plates.

Dishing out a slice of France right here in England, 63 Degrees is the perfect place for fine dining in Manchester. Set in an informal space, there's an innovative food offering, including pan-fried scallops, escargots and artichoke velouté with truffle oil.

One of Manchester's most Instagrammable restaurants, Menagerie comes from the brains behind Neighbourhood. Think ceilings adorned with greenery, glamorous booths and flower walls. The food and drink offering is just as pretty, so get those pics and eat the evening away.

In need of a little plant-based loving? Head to one of the best vegan restaurants in Manchester, as V-Revolution serves up a tasty selection of vegan junk food. Get your mitts on meat-free chicken wings, stacked burgers and dairy-free ice cream.
