Read on to see who won this week and find out more about Manchester’s top watering-holes. And don’t forget to share your tips with us using Twitter – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.
• @betsyisvapid made it into our winners’ list this week with a great tip to try Solomon Grundy in Withington, as there’s always something going on there. It’s coffee bar and bistro by day and a bar and restaurant by night, so you can head there for a night out and return the next day for a delicious breakfast too.
• @simonjp73 picked up those loyalty points too with hisTwitter tip to try Crunch in Canal Street. You’ll have to be quick though – after three fantastic years, this lively bar is due to close any day now. But another bar will be opening there soon, so keep an eye on what’s going on.
• @CallumCollie chugged into this week’s top 10 too with a winning tweet directing us to FAC251 in Princess Street, in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. This new club is owned by Peter Hook, ex-Joy Division and New Order bass player, and is in the former Factory Records HQ, so it’s perfect for anyone looking for a touch of ‘Madchester’ nostalgia.
• @astrotour2010 won this week too with a great Twitter tip to try Fab Café in Portland Street. This amazing TV and Movie theme bar is decked out with daleks, spec ships, movie posters and even the TARDIS – and it’s just ten minutes’ walk from Manchester Piccadilly Station, so it’s ideal for anyone arriving in the city by train.
• @millerjen15 steamed into this week’s top 10 with her Twitter suggestion to dance the night away at Lammars Restaurant and Bar in Hilton Street. With fabulous food, brilliant music and cocktails to die for, a visit to this bar’s a must when you’re in Manchester.
• @aweSam92 also took home those prize points with a Twitter reminder to try Baa Bar in South Manchester’s Fallowfield district. This three-storey bar and club has a fantastic atmosphere and the drinks are cheap too.
• @northern_lauren made it into this week’s picks too with a top tweet recommending Corbieres in St. Anne’s Street. This cosy cellar bar is known for its friendly staff, lively atmosphere and great jukebox, which features rock and indie classics.
• @PhilospherLiam railroaded his way into our top ten this week with his Twitter tip to try one of Manchester’s KRO Bars for great beer and cheap, tasty meals. And train travellers arriving in Manchester won’t need to go far to find one either. KRO Piccadilly is just10 minutes’ walk from Manchester Piccadilly Station.
• @pstearman won this week too with top Twitter recommendation to head for Cloud 23 in Deansgate – but also says that you’ll need a head for heights if you stand close to the floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s worth doing just that, though, to see stunning views of the city whilst sipping a superb cocktail or two.
• @ryath89 pulled in the last of this week’s prize points with another Twitter vote for Cloud 23. This luxurious Manchester bar is definitely a firm favourite with our Twitter followers -and with its contemporary décor and high-class drinks menu, we can see why.
Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks for your fantastic Manchester bar suggestions! And if you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – you’ll get the chance to win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, car hire and hotel accommodation next week too.
