NQ’s Common Bar to relaunch with 100% refurb

Northern Quarter hang-out has a full face-lift...

It seems Common isn’t so common. Northern Quarter institution to relaunch in the spring.

We’ve all spent a few nights at the NQ’s Common Bar. The original hang out for Manchester’s hipsters and elite and known for it’s extensive list of craft beers, tasty food and trendy tunes. This March, they will be closing their doors to spread out, spruce up and blow your mind with a fresh new look!

Open for over ten years, Common have been the go-to place to check out the latest and greatest art and design, lending their walls to local creatives and artists. This continues with plans for the new space which seems to be better than ever.

When it re-opens in the Spring, Common will have earlier opening times, and an extended square footage with 30 additional covers, making more time and room for a new all day food menu and next level coffee whilst maintaining the ace stuff they’ve always done.
