The best new bars in Manchester prove there’s one thing Mancunians love to do, and that’s have a good drink. Of course, when we love doing something, we want to do it well.

The drinking dens on this list are raising the bar. They’re not your average run of the mill places. They’re the kind of places you’d take that mate from out of town who thinks he’s been everywhere and seen everything. And you’ll probably have a good time trying to find them.


Aside from their killer Latino bar snacks which feature salt and sweet paprika popcorn, epinadas and some of the best BBQ ribs this side of Brazil, this quirky bar on the edge of the Northern Quarter does drinks and they do them well. They use some of the freshest ingredients available to man and their mixologists certainly know their way around a shaker. The Melon Man Thai is a guaranteed good bet but, if you’re feeling adventurous, order yourself a Santiago Sun. Thank us later.

The drinks are fresh and the beer is ice cold. And that’s about all we know about this place as there is hardly information about this bar anywhere online. You might find the odd Facebook post but that’s about it. It’s located on Peter Street, opposite Albert Schloss, and that’s pretty much all we’re going to say on the matter. Yes, it’s just that secret.
