Step back into 1920s New York, just keep it quiet – The Fitzgerald feels an awful lot like the illegal drinking dens of yore. Hidden away above Stevenson Square, the bar stealthily overlooks the Manchester skyline. Expect unique and fruity cocktails served to you by suitably-attired flapper bar staff – here Prohibition-era America really comes to life, but with an extra pop of extravagance.
The drinks menu itself is a wonder – full of classics and twists. You will love the Candied Sacred Negroni with the sumptuous sweet and icy tang of sorbet counteracting the sharpness of the Campari. Or try the perfectly presented Aviatrix – it comes in an old fashioned-style mini-suitcase. Shall we take a trip?
The Fitzgerald has an authentic vintage atmosphere, all dark wood and ruby velvet, with carefully curated live acts at the weekend. Sit back and lose yourself in the jazzy tunes – most of the time the bar provides table service so you really have nothing to do but to enjoy yourself.
