The Pen & Pencil Manchester

An added touch of New York glamour has arrived in Manchester with the The Pen & Pencil bar and eatery on the corner of Hilton and Tariff Street.

Taking its name and inspiration from the infamous mid-20th Century bar on East 45th Street in New York, which was popular with newspaper journalists and ad men – the original ‘Mad Men’, The Pen & Pencil offers the perfect place for the NQ’s creative locals to chill, think, meet and enjoy great food and drink.

Open seven days a week, The Pen & Pencil is open from 10am right through until late, with a focus on a strong day time offering with great breakfast, brunch and lunch washed down with top quality coffee and freshly blended smoothies. 

The brunch menu typifies its American namesake and includes American pancakes served with buttermilk pancakes, blueberries, house made maple syrup and streaky bacon; Mexican breakfast, Huevos Rancheros, with scrambled eggs, Pico de Gallo, Monterey Jack cheese, chipotle mayonnaise and chive crème fraîche with a charred tortilla.

Evenings and weekends the menu develops to include small plates and a few larger dishes with an international feel. It sits alongside a specially created cocktail list making the venue perfect for mid afternoon cocktails, after work gatherings, and those wanting to eat and drink until the early hours.

The cocktail list, created in-house, features amongst others Beer in the Bronx with gin, IPA syrup, pink grapefruit juice, sweet & dry vermouth and Cucumber & Sake Martini with cucumber, vodka, sake, sugar.

A resident DJ gets the party started every weekend and the team has curated a series of monthly live music nights. There is also a room available for private hire for networking meetings, private parties and launch events.

The Pen & Pencil is the joint venture of two of Manchester’s established bar and restaurant operators, Dan Pollard who created The Violet Hour cocktail bar and lounge on Burton Road in West Didsbury and Kevin Connor, who previously ran the NQ institution, Dry Bar on Oldham Street.
