11 Top Spots For An Unforgettable Valentines Date in Manchester
Deciding where to go on #datenight can be a nightmare. She wants to go somewhere nice but you just want a burger and then it’s over before it even began.
Not to worry though, we’ve come up with a comprehensive list of all the places you should be taking the potential love of your life, so you don’t have to…
11. Junkyard Golf, Piccadilly Place
For a limited time only, Junkyard Golf is in the city as a pop-up brand of crazy golf. With a fully stocked bar, you can always stay for a drink if it goes well on one of the two courses.
10. El Gato Negro Tapas, King Street
9. North Tea Power, Tib Street
An independent tea house with a lot of choice (and coffee for the less adventurous.) North Tea Power also offer some decent winter grub - their large cheese toasties really warm the cockles.
8. Grano, Birley fields
A bit off the beaten track on Stretford Road in Hulme, Grano is a quiet spot outside of the bustling city centre to have a heart-to-heart. It offers great coffee and homemade cake throughout the day, while a bar and wood-fired pizza oven provide the evening's entertainment.
7. Atlas Bar, Deansgate
With a wide range of gins, Atlas have a terrace with heated seating outside for those cold winter nights. And it look out over that most romantic of places, Castlefield Locks.
6. Twenty Twenty Two, Dale Street
Introducing a competitive edge can go one of two ways. But a bit of friendly banter over table tennis and drinks at Twenty Twenty Two can't hurt.

5. Ruby Lounge, High Street
4. People’s History Museum, Left Bank
Craving culture over a craft ale? The People’s History Museum will not only help gain an understanding of Manchester’s history but will be a civilised conversation starter over a coffee after.
3. Vogue Exhibition, Manchester Art Gallery (until 30th October)
Something for the culture vultures, the 100 years of Vogue exhibition gives you and your date a talking point (plus she'll be impressed at your venue choice) and being right by Piccadilly, if it goes well the possibilities are endless.
2. Pot Kettle Black Coffee, Barton Arcade
One of Manchester’s most popular caffeine pit stops. Also PKB, as it is affectionately known, does fantastic food so if you’re on a lunch date, there’s nowhere better.
1. Cloud 23, The Hilton
It may be a rather clichéd place in Manchester to go on a date, but it has its reputation for a reason. Enjoy one of their exclusive cocktails or a glass of champers if you're feeling flush and you and your date could be in seventh heaven in no time.
