Venue Info

From the same crew behind some of Manchester's favorite cocktail haunts The Violet Hour and Dry Bar, this swinging 60s' inspired bar/booze den is a bright and fun retro bar that'll make you smile. The name of the game is strong, classic cocktails with a twist: from artisanal mezcal, to bespoke gin, these artfully crafted drinks are made with skill and noticeable attention to detail. Snag a big table by the windows with your crew, or find a more secluded spot for some one-on-one time and settle in for a full-blown tipple -- just be sure to read the wallpaper in the bathroom, and try to keep a straight face as you walk back to your seat.
