Deansgate Locks Bars - Lock 91
Deansgate Locks Bars Manchester

The converted arches on Whitworth Street West, at the bottom end of Deansgate house some of the most popular bars in the city centre.

Not to be mistaken with the Deansgate area of Manchester (a mile walk away), 'The Locks', as they are better known locally, are famous for their trendy bars and clubs, all offering sun terrace drinking in the summer.

The ten railway arches are home to six bars and a comedy club, all with a walkway and bridge hanging over the canal below.

The tram station at Manchester Central sits above The Locks, whilst Deansgate train station is just across the road and Oxford Road Station only 5 minutes walk away.

There's a handful of other bars near Deansgate Locks that are well worth exploring, many dating back to the vibrant times of the Hacienda, which once sat on the corner overlooking this spot.

Castlefield, the most popular and picturesque part of town in the summer, together with the historic pubs in the Bridgewater area also sit next door.

The Wharf   Ale  Wine  Garden  Children Welcome  Pets
Although you'd be forgiven for thinking it dates back to the 1820s, the time of the historic warehouses around it, this beautiful Castlefield pub was actually built in 1998 and traded until 2005 as 'Jackson's Wharf'', before Brunning & Price spectacularly re-opened it in July 2012. The large building offers a huge canalside terrace alongside innumerable nooks and crannies, with cosy, intimate rooms and alcoves in which you (and your dog) can enjoy the friendly "country pub" atmosphere, 12 cask ales, 50 wines, 100 whiskies and delicious British food.
Ale = £3.70+    Wine = £4.30+    Cocktails = £7.50+
