The Lawn Club

You want a little bit of class? We've got you.

Set in the heart of Spinningfields, The Lawn Club is where classy meets quirky. It’s got the most gorgeous beer garden for you to enjoy a fresh fruity Pimms that’s served in a glass boot or an Aperol Spritz from a watering can, or a simple glass of wine whilst you’re sat in a greenhouse. 

It’s a fresh open bar that’s buzzing with groups of friends enjoying a cocktail in the sun, which gives it the perfect vibe for you to enjoy the summer. Make sure to take your friends from outside of the city to show them just how well Manchester dominates the summer cocktail scene. 

Behind Closed Doors

Ok, so we obviously love Manchester, but if you're from here you'll know that the weather doesn’t always hold up. If the Manchester rain spoils your beer garden plans, then look no further than Behind Closed Doors! This Northern Quarter staple is an underground cocktail bar with some interesting 70s style memorabilia decorating the walls (you’ll have to see for yourself) and a relaxed vibe which makes it a fab cocktail hotspot. 

Their extensive cocktail menu has something for everyone, from a French Kiss to a Lovebite, you’ll find the perfect cocktail to enjoy in this cool relaxed setting, making it a perfect fit for the Northern Quarter family.

20 Stories

Manchester’s ultimate classy cocktail hotspot. 20 Stories is another Spinningfields babe that we trust to give us the best boujie cocktail experience. It has one of the best views in Manchester, with a 360 range that helps you the far reaches of our beautiful city. 

The 20 stories roof terrace is perfect for bigger groups that want to indulge with a cocktail in the sun, or stay inside for a date with that special someone, or even a fancy wine date with the bestie.

The Liar's Club

Need something a little more down to earth? The Liar’s Club is a dopamine dream and the perfect cocktail destination for a more relaxed sunny Saturday. It’s a Tiki inspired bar filled to the brim with bright and bold eye-catching colours and neon lights to go perfectly with their fun and colourful cocktails.
