MUSU is the Japanese restaurant that you can find on Bridge Street, where slick interiors and amazing wall murals find their home. But there's more than just the space itself to take pictures of at this pick of pretty places in Manchester city centre, as sushi, wagyu and other plates come impeccably presented here.

Cocoa Cabana Ancoats

Combining a chocolatiers and tea room with a cocktail bar makes Cocoa Cabana a top pick for an Instagrammable cafe in Manchester. Here, you can settle down on plush sofas in a baby pink space, with a boozy afternoon tea, slice of cake, droolworthy brunch or a few drinks.

20 Stories

It's billed as the city's favourite sky-high spot, boasting gorgeous views of the city below and matched with equally impressive interiors. 20 Stories is an excellent choice of picturesque places in Manchester, where for dinner or afternoon tea is followed by a small photoshoot in the botanical decor and among the outdoor foliage on the roof terrace. 

The Laundrette

Found near some of the most pretty streets in Manchester (yes, we mean those coming off Chorlton's Beech Road), The Laundrette has plenty to eye up as well. Fronting cute-as-can-be pinstripes, floral decorations, and that viral mix of vodka, raspberry, limoncello, apple, cream and grenadine that's topped with candyfloss.


Menagerie is a gorgeous florally-adorned paradise for your next trip to pretty restaurants in Manchester. 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.
