Taking up residency in the Corn Exchange, Banyan is a superbly stylish and relaxing spot for drinking and dining in Manchester. A trusty venue whether you're looking for a midday coffee and cake, a dinner date or some late-night cocktail merriment, Banyan is the in-demand branch of restaurants that made such a name for themselves across the Pennines.
Far from your average hotel restaurant and bar, this lively and stylish eatery at the Radisson Blu is one of the finest restaurant bars in the city. Offering up a stunning range of Japanese and Mexican small-plates, and a cocktail menu to swoon over, it's perfect for all special occasions, and sometimes no occasion at all!
An institution of favoured plates, tapas style social dining and cuban inspired cocktails, Revolucion De Cuba is one of the best blends of bar and restaurant in the city. Head on down for flavours-ome spices and marinated meats before drinking and dancing on into the night.
With not one but two great restaurants, Manchester235 has something to suit all tastes. With James Martin serving up a range of seasonal favourites from locally sourced ingredients served in the most delicate ways, Ocean Treasure on the other hand is the Manchester235 way of bringing the far-east to Las Vegas. It serves sizzling platters, fresh seafood and traditional Chinese favourites that are always major crowd pleasers.
With an extensive cocktail list and a varied choice of day and night menus, The Pen & Pencil in the Northern Quarter is a great restaurant bar. Stop by for an Americana style breakfast complete with smoothies and coffee or head by in the evening for martini's and weekend DJ sets.
