Top Rated Nightlife in Manchester

Atlas Bar

Popular with media types, Atlas was one of the first designer café bars in Manchester. It is spacious with a modern chic feel accentuated by simple metal tables and minimalist turquoise seating. There is a pleasant heated beer garden area at the back, while the large front windows afford a splendid view down Deansgate. Atlas Bar specializes in gin, so make sure to give that a try.


It's the punters, as much as anything else, who give VIA (a major focal point in the Gay Village) its character. Of course, the rich wood paneling and opulent neo-Gothic surroundings help, but this merely serves to reflect the exotic splendor of the clientele. This place is extraordinarily busy at weekends and during the summer months. Boddingtons and Stella Artois are served on draft along with the usual range of continental bottled beers and spirits.

Richmond Tea Rooms

Richmond Tea Rooms will transport you to another world with its elaborate, Alice in Wonderland-inspired decor. Tea pot light fixtures hang from the ceiling, lighting the counter that has been shaped and decorated to look like a cake topped with frosting. Sip teas from around the world and enjoy afternoon tea classics like scones, cakes, and sandwiches. You can even grab some of their delightful pastries to take home and enjoy.

The Star and Garter

This large turn of the century pub has established quite a reputation locally for its live music acts over the last few years. The Star & Garter started by offering free space to any band that could bring its own audience, and recently was the only pub-sized venue in the UK to put on Status Quo during a recent tour. Inside on the ground floor there is a traditional curved bar with a main room festooned with music posters and fliers, while the snug houses a pool table. Upstairs is the venue room with small raised stage, basic sound system and its own separate bar. It has a late license and also puts on regular club nights, such as Manchester's longest Indie club night Smile on Saturdays.

Joshua Brooks

One of the most sought-after nightlife spots of the city, Joshua Brooks takes care of your drinking, dining and entertainment needs all under one roof. Open since noon, this is a great place for a lunch detour with delectable burgers on offer. As evening closes in, Joshua Brooks takes on the role of a vibrant watering hole where cocktails take center stage. But the place is at its euphoric best during the soccer season when locals as well as travelers head here to catch a good game. Jam sessions keep the crowd entertained on several other evenings.

The Witchwood

Recently saved from demolition, Ashton's historic music venue also doubles as an Ale house. The Witchwood, with a seating capacity of 200, has been known as a springboard for young musicians; local independent music and comedy acts can be seen here seven nights a week. Price of admission is inexpensive, but purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.
