Overview

We are a friendly bar that welcomes students and locals alike. We are the best priced bar in Manchester with cocktails from £2 and pints from £2.15. With one of the best outdoor spaces in the area which is partly covered so can be used all year round. We show all the football as well as have a great atmosphere on a night time where you choose the music from our jukebox.
