Singles in Manchester

Now don't get us wrong, we love a good old TV binge as much as the next person, but no one meets the love of their life sitting at home alone in their jammies watching Friends repeats. You gotta get out there to find your Netflix-and-chill comrade. A daunting prospect, we know, but that's where we come in. We've got you sorted with a selection of Manchester's best cocktail spots, indie clubs and tiki bars for you to try out your best one-liners. Go forth and mingle, my single pringles.
