We aren’t blessed with the best weather here in Manchester so when the sun does start to shine everybody wants to eat and drinks al fresco.
We’ve put together a huge list of the 50 things you should be doing in Manchester this Spring and keeping yourself well fed and washing it down with some fresh beverages is absolutely key.
Make sure you tick them all off the list…
One of the most famous outdoor bars in Manchester, this bar has a great canal side location and some proper party vibes when the sun goes down.
18-25 Castle Street, Castlefield
Have a heated area all year round but really comes to life when the sun shines with a few ice cold beers and some quality tunes by the DJ. No better place to spend a little time.
80 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, M1 5JG
Having recently undergone a fresh refurbishment, this South Manchester City bar has its walls and huge beer garden draped in team blues.
8 Burton Road, Withington
It’s massive, family friendly and has always got plenty of dogs to pet.
852 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury
The Marble Arch
The birthplace of Marble Beers, the local delicacy was brewed here until 2011, and now they have a jukebox, good food and a beer garden.
73 Rochdale Road, Manchester
One of the first places that many people think of heading when the sun shines. Stunning views, water nearby and plenty of drinks flowing to keep you happy. A wonderful place to while away a few hours.
Nothing beats sitting out in the square in the Northern Quarter when the sun shines. Plenty of food options, great people watching and awesome drinks. All you need to do is make sure you get here early to get a table.
Known best for their huge variety of gins which is more than enough to tempt us down here on a sunny day when we need to quench our thirst. Aa great crowd and the party often continues into the late evening.
The very newest kid on the block and an absolute must visit for everybody in Manchester when the sun shines. The highest bar and restaurant in the city with stunning views and great food.
Sinclair’s Oyster Bar
One of the most iconic pubs not just in Manchester but in the entire UK. A haven for tourists, football fans or anybody visiting the city but that shouldn’t put off locals visiting either. Wonderful people watching.
