Having tried a cocktail, and being a little disappointed in its quality, we almost passed by this place but did pop in and were very pleased that we did. Cocktails were cheaper -than elsewhere but kept up the quality. Well-recommended !

A large group of us went here reasonably late on a Saturday for a night cap or two. The atmosphere was great but importantly we could also get a table and a seat. Bar staff were very welcoming. Highly recommend.

Myself and two friends visited Saturday afternoon, only expecting to stay an hour before moving on to shopping. Well, we ended up staying almost 3 hours and sacking off the shopping so that says it all really! Adam and Matt were so friendly and full of energy it was infectious! The cocktails were delicious (Twisted Espresso Martini was my absolute... More

My friend and I did a cocktail run in the northern quarter. We hit about 7 bars and this was one of my absolute favourites. It isn't massive but that's what I loved. Nicely spread out tables. Candlelit so very romantic. Fairy lights always float my boat and there are lots. Appealing bar area. Friendly staff. Great guy served us... More

This place is fantastic! Have visited a couple of times. Great cocktails, every time, great atmosphere, great staff. No hurstle and bustle like the larger chain bars. I already recommend this place to friends going to Manchester. Will definitely return.

My dad would hate this place, it's got music on and it's mood-lit. So if you are a hard of hearing, octogenarian with poor eye sight steer well clear. Otherwise it's fab, pleasant knowledgeable staff, good music and a great G'n'T.

As the title says... stopped for one drink with friends and was nicely surprised. Their Pornstar Martini is spot on, so tasty.

We came here for mid afternoon cocktails. They do 2 for £11 which is good value and the cocktails in that list were different and nice. I would definitely go again.There was table service earlier on but that stopped as it got busier.
