It goes without saying that Three Little Words is among Manchester's best bars for date night. Not only are these arches home to a restaurant and bar, but also the gin school where you can distill your very own bottle before gazing into each other's eyes over impressive plates and boozy drinks.

If the weather isn't in your favour, you can experience a little bit of nature indoors with Kai. Expect a menu of fresh mezze to share, with handpicked wine and an exceptional selection of expertly-crafted Turkish cocktails to enjoy under the floral installation.
