The Green is an award-winning sports bar that comes up trumps when the big sporting events roll around. Discuss all the latest track and field news with a drink in the canal-side beer garden; there’s indoor golf, karaoke and pool on hand if you should fancy a break from the action in Rio. With hearty burgers and a bar stocked full with boozy options, The Green is one of the best places to watch the Olympic Games in central Manchester.
