Bars near The Bridgewater Hall Manchester

There are some delightful pubs and bars near The Bridgewater Hall on Lower Mosley Street and Manchester Central (or G-Mex, as it's still referred to by most Mancunians) next door.
The Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Central, which includes the building previously called Manchester International Convention Centre (MICC) are all less than 5 minutes walk from some of the busiest drinking areas in Manchester.
There's easily something for everybody here, whether it be a pre-show shandy or a post-concert cocktail. There's traditional pubs offering real ale and pub grub, flash wine bars and cheap chain's providing pre-show food and many nightclubs allowing an after-concert boogie.
