Named Best Bar award at the last EatDrinkSleep Awards, The Liquor Store not only has the chance to regain their title but has been nominated for two awards this year – Best Bar AND Best Late Night Venue.
The Liquor Store is the ultimate Manc/American hybrid. Clean US styling with lots of warm brick, soft wood and dark leather meets Mancunian hospitality, music and humour.
The spirit of the original venue off Deansgate has been kept alive and kicking at a second venue which opened on First Street in October. The same décor, the same hint of classic NY, the same Mancunian heart.
But instead of lining the walls with The Rat Pack, there’s the Manc Pack – Tony Wilson, The Charlatans, Les Dawson, Steve Coogan, Caroline Aherne in Mrs Merton form, to name but a few. Upstairs there’s a striking central signpost that marks not Route 66 but Coronation Street and the Hacienda.
It’s always been the little touches that make The Liquor Store special. The customer service has always been excellent and there is no doubt that this will remain the case.
The drinks menu is packed with innovative cocktails like the Made of MCR, a creation which combines all the famous flavours of the city in one seriously tasty drink and names that will have you reaching deep into your record collection, if not your movie back catalogue. You’ll never forget your first sip of Tina Turner Died (nor the name) and the happy hour deals are legendary. The new Liquor Store on First Street serves up classic American dishes daily, too.
