I'm in Manchester next week – what's worth checking out in the evening?
Well, it seems there’s nobody skilled (or cheap, more likely) enough in Manchester to do what needs doing next week so I’m on my way up on Sunday evening and spending the week flooring. 😐 Unfortunately, I’ll be sans bike.
Will be staying fairly central. Any good curry houses worth checking out? Decent pubs where I can try out some northish ales? What’s the name of the chin-stroker cinema there? Ive always wanted to visit so might take in a suitably chin-stroking film.
I’d ask if anyone was up for a beer but I fear I’d be setting myself up to be disappointed by noone wanting one. 🙂Posted 6 years ago
Northern Quarter has nice bars if you can handle the hipster vibes 🙂 Common does nice food.
If you want a proper old school boozer this place is cool (not been for a few years though) – http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/peveril-of-the-peak-manchester
Cornerhouse is the cinema I think you’re referring to.Posted 6 years ago
Cornerhouse is the chinstroker cinema, next to Oxford Road station. Loads of good pubs – you have any idea where you’re staying? Binners might be a better bet for recommending specific pubs and eating establishments, my fave is Chaophraya which is Thai (and not cheap either)
if you bring riding gear you can stoke the tandem if you want an experience 😉
Edit – busy monday (warren miller film tour at Didsbury) and Wednesday, but beers on thursday might be a goerPosted 6 years ago
Common’s a bar, so neither pub nor restaurant. The Chophouses are nice pubs – Sam’s Chophouse or Thomas’s Chophouse. Cask near MOSI has an extensive selection of bottled beers and a decent selection of beers on draught.
Oh, how did I forget to mention The City Arms on Kennedy Street – 8 taps, a different one on each, when the barrel is done a different one goes on. You might get 12 different beers in a single night.Posted 6 years agoNaranjadaMember
Evening beers – Peveril of the Peak & Britons Protection & Rain bar if you want something authentic (and all 3 are close to each other), Corbieres (it’s down some stairs) off the side of St Annes Square & The Temple on Oxford Street (it’s also down some stairs, used to be a public convenience – good sounds usually) are both interesting and then there’s the Northern Quarter if you fancy something overpriced.
Sanam sweethouse on Wilmslow Road in Rusholme is, IMO, the best curry in Rusholme so is deffo worth a trip. I believe the Rajdoot on Albert Square is also a good curry but I’ve never been.
The Cornerhouse is brilliant & does decent food and beer – they do a ‘Reel deal’ one night of the week, Tues I think, so you can have Pizza, drink and film for £12.Posted 6 years agoGlitterGaryMember
Best pubs are:
Bar Fringe on Ancoats,
The Smithfield on Ancoats,
The Crown and Kettle on Ancoats,
The Castle on Oldham Street,
The Marble Arch on Rochdale Road (Great and worth the 10 minute walk)
And a newish poncy bar, but sells great ale: The Port Street Beer House:
Also, Knott Bar is worth checking out opposite Deansgate station, decent grub there too. The Peveril is ok, as is the Britons Protection if you can get a seat.
Edit: as nbt says, the City is great too.Posted 6 years ago
Oi! What’s up with my curry recommendations? Its worth going to Rusholme just for a wander down the mile.
There are loads of decent pubs in the centre. I like Sand Bar on Oxford Road, The Knott and Cask in Castlefield. Northern Quarter is all good. You could see if there any decent gigs on at say the Deaf Institute.
I’m sure a few of us could arrange to meet up one night and give you a bit of a tour> you can meet Hora. He is real. Honest!Posted 6 years ago
binbins, that would be awesome to put faces to some of the names. Added bonus would be mrs deadly thinking how weird it would be. 🙂 Just need to see how my responses from CouplesSeekingMales are going on Adult Friend Finder. I imagine my week will be free though. 🙂Posted 6 years ago
