Based underneath the iconic Albert Hall, Albert's Schloss hosts some of the biggest weekend events in Manchester.

Cane and Grain

Ribs, rum, bourbon and beer - it's a simple recipe but ones that's served Cane and Grain so well over the years. The venue is based in Manchester's Northern Quarter and continues to make waves with its fun atmosphere and inventive cocktail menu; we recommend the Bone Yard Julep. Head down on the weekend and enjoy an easy-going night out in Manchester full of stunning dishes and even better drinks.
