City Centre Manchester Bars & Pubs

Many of the most popular bars and traditional pubs in Manchester, fall around the Town Hall area, slap bang in the middle of the city centre. These are the best bars near the Christmas Market in Manchester, to escape the cold.

Together with exclusive shops and top restaurants, here you'll also find some of the trendiest cocktail bars in Manchester, together with wonderful examples of traditional Manchester pubs and backstreet boozers.

Some bars operate strict door policies and, with a large number of office workers joining a more distinguished clientele than other parts of town, it makes a pleasant area to explore, taste real ale, try a cocktail, sip a wine or two, or crack open the Champagne.

Being in the central hub of town allows you to go on and explore bars in nearly every other popular area of Manchester city centre and you're also a short walk from the main shopping area, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Central, Bridgewater Hall, China Town, Manchester Arena, Opera House and Palace Theatre.

This friendly European style cafe opened on Tib Lane in December 2017, hidden away on the back streets between the Town Hall and the Arndale shopping centre. Serving over 100 beers it is the perfect place for those wanting to know the difference between a blonde and a trappist, with a menu ranging from supreme Belgian brews to lesser known artisan varieties, and offering beer flights.
