Just a stone throw away from the loud and bright Deansgate Lock sits Catalan Square, Castlefield; a much quieter area that is home to the likes of Dukes 92, Bohemia and The Twisted Med. When the weather permits it, the large open space welcomes those wanting to have a relaxing time enjoying the sunshine and catching up with friends. When the weather isn’t so kind (which is 99.9% of the time!) the mixture of bars and restaurants provide much welcomed shelter from the elements.
Adding to the appeal of Castlefield is the new Uber Lounge. Described as a ‘bar with a club feel’ Uber Lounge is one of those places that ticks all the boxes; the music is a mixture of soulful house and club classics and doesn’t interrupt your conversation; it’s relaxed atmosphere is the ideal place for anyone wanting to unwind after a hard week at work, as well as the perfect place to start your big night out!
Although it serves a wide selection of wines, champagnes and beers the main attraction of Uber is its cocktail menu. With 29 to choose from there are your standards and there are those with a little bit of a twist for example the Passion Fruit Sparking Mojito (which was my favourite) and the Strawberries and Cream which is made from jam, fresh strawberries, vodka and cream! Oh and it is served in a jam jar.
The bar itself sits above Bohemia and boasts a large outdoor terrace which overlooks Castlefield. Indoors, the intimate space is decorated with purple velvet booths and low lighting giving it a cool, relaxed vibe. There is plenty of seating but table service and booth reservations are also available.
So, for anyone planning a night out this weekend, Uber Lounge is open every Thursday to Sunday, 7pm till late. For more information or book a booth, call 0161 839 7099.
