Went to the Washhouse with a friend when visiting Manchester in June. I liked the whole concept after reading about it online on a list of different things to do when visiting the city. No issues booking beforehand, I like keeping up the pretense of booking a machine it's good fun. Staff were very friendly and accommodating on the night especially after we had arrived late. Tried around 7 or 8 drinks from the menu between and each one was presented uniquely and with its own flourish. We even had a mini marshmallow roast with one drink. Yes that does add to the price of course but if you wanted a standard run of the mill cocktail then it would be better going somewhere else. This was a fun experience and the fun comes in the presentation and variety of just how weird and varied some of the cocktails are. Wanted to try a lot more of the menu but we were tipsy enough as it was so will just have to come back again next time I'm in the city!

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience here,

***MUST BOOK IN ADVANCE, NO WALK INS***

Dark dingy, prohibition feel to it, was fantastic. All servers were very knowledgeable and even able to accommodate guests that were a little more fussy and couldn't find something on the carefully thought out Manchester themed cocktail menu.

The cocktail were more like something from a Michelin Star restaurant.

Some of them you needed to burn, toast marshmallows over, and even vape part of one of them! Amazing.

We finally managed to get into this place, and I can honestly say it was worth the wait!
If you like pornstar martines you have come to the right place, it's a Friday night Chris and Sam working, it was Chris(male) who made us the cocktails and Sam (fem) who served us. Both Beautiful people who made us so welcome.
Please don't miss this little gem of a place I can't recommend it enough!
