Really quirky little bar - doesn’t actually look like a bar from outside!! Cocktails were really nice and staff were really friendly too. Will definitely be returning on our next trip to Manchester

Enjoyed my time in here, the bar is nice and staff are good. House white is a nice wine and they had a good selection of obscure largers and ciders. Would like to return to try a cocktail

We went on sort of a weird night--all the credit card machines in the UK were down so everywhere was cash only which gave everything a weird energy. Love the inside and the semi-hidden exterior. Bartenders were very friendly and my cocktail was summery and...More

It’s my first week in Manchester. Bartender Chelsea was super friendly and made loads of really good suggestions for other bars and things to do. Would def recommend for a drink with friends or for a solo chill-out like I did!

I don't think they will let you book a table for just two. It does get very busy though and there is only a very limited number of tables. If you do have to wait for one the wait isn't usually that long and there are stools... More
