Great outings in Manchester
Mary D’Bemish Bar
One of the best Manchester City spots near the stadium. This sports bar shows all matches and is the next best thing to being inside the stadium.
13 Grey Mare Lane
If you like all kinds of meat, or if you want to get into the joga bonito frame of mind, this Brazilian restaurant is the place for you. It’s also a good place for player spotting as by both United and City players are regulars there.
Deansgate: King Street West
Northern Quarter: 58 Lever Street
For post-match clubbers, Sankeys is the place to be. First opened as Sankeys Soap in 1994, it has closed and re-opened four times. The latest comeback saw the light of day in 2014. In 2010, DJ Mag readers voted it the number one club in the world
Beehive Mill , Jersey St
Deansgate Locks is famous for its trendy bars and electrifying atmosphere. Don’t get it confused with the Dansgate Area a mile away. The ten railway arches house six bars and a comedy club.
Here you’ll find a nice selection of Manchester’s best restaurants, bars, record stores, and coffee shops. Great for vintage shopping as well, the Northern Quarter is where the alternative vibe is.
A must-visit for lovers of Pakistani, Indian, and Middle Eastern food and culture. The Curry Mile is popular among both locals and tourists. And don’t worry, you won’t have to walk a full mile, within a half a mile there are at least 70 restaurants to choose from.
Trafford Shopping Centre
With almost 300 stores, the intu Trafford Centre is one of Europe’s biggest shopping malls, and you can easily spend an entire day there browsing, eating, and maybe catching a movie. Easy access by train, bus or car.
