Schofield’s Bar

How to pick the best cocktail bar in a city overflowing with them? But Schofield’s is as classic as a dirty martini, as cool as a mint lemonade, set up by two brothers who returned to Manchester after 25 years to realise their dream of opening their own bar – and what a bar, pure elegance in the splendid surroundings of glamourous 1930s Art Deco Sunlight House.

Seven Bro7hers

With a brewery in Salford, and three funky beerhouses in Ancoats, Media City and Middlewood Locks, it’s fair to say that Seven Bro7hers has become a craft beer institution in these parts, with plenty of non-alcoholic choices too. We can’t say which is our favourite; we want you to find your own.
