Now, it wouldn't be a list of the most Instagrammable restaurants in Manchester without Rio Ferdinand's Rosso making the cut. Attracting a whole host of celebs to sample pizza, pasta, steaks and fresh fish in its sleek surrounds, this venue is the cream of the crop.

Fronting cute-as-can-be pinstripes, floral decorations, and a menu of 'cocktails and carbs', there's plenty to eye up at Chorlton's The Laundrette. And if you're looking for the viral mix of vodka, raspberry, limoncello, apple, cream and grenadine that's topped with candyfloss? It'll only set you back £9.

Sitting proudly in Salford, Menagerie is a gorgeous florally-adorned paradise for Insta snapping. Describing itself as an original collection of the 'enticing and exotic', the bar and restaurant brings together art, performance, immersive drinking and dining under one roof.
