Now Open

Get ready, as the brains behind Cottonopolis and Edinburgh Castle have opened Libertine. Located on Wilmslow Road, this brand-new venue has transformed a former Grade II listed District Bank, all while keeping the original features. Think hand-carved adornments, alongside restored roof lights, complemented by rustic wooden tables and pretty hanging plants.

Feel like having a boogie? You're in luck, as this hotspot has a roster of entertainment for those of you looking to let your hair down. From live DJ sets to up-and-coming tunes by local musicians, this watering hole is sure to impress.

If you've worked up quite the appetite, there's a range of Middle Eastern-inspired food on offer. Delve into wood-fired plates, including charred king prawns in a brown butter hot sauce, or oak-smoked pork belly. And on weekends? You can also expect egg-cellent brunch plates, such as shakshuka and nduja on sourdough, alongside hearty roasts washed down with a pint from the epic 24-tap selection. Hoppy days.
