Room

Room, Manchester cocktail bar and restaurantRoom seems awfully modest of a name for a space that feels more like a grandiose hall. Step off of King Street and into the sky-high ceilinged bar with achingly tall arched windows and artful antique décor.

With the bar dividing the room from the restaurant, there’s ample space to relax with a floral and creamy Pink Wafer – made with gin, rose liqueur, vanilla yoghurt, lemon and peach. Or perhaps you’re feeling a little low and want to opt for the Grounds for Divorce. This smoky boozy drink is a mix of scotch, tequila, cigar syrup and old fashioned bitters. If you’re not quite ready to cross over to the restaurant, grab a few of the bar bites, like the paprika-dusted whitebait with garlic mayo. For a gentle graze, try the duck fat popcorn with five spice salt … these might be the best kernels you’ve ever tasted

Get your stylish digs on as this is one venue where you come to see and be seen. Grab yourself seats by the corner window for some stunning city views in wing-backed chairs. And if you want to rebound from the stresses of work – remember the DJ will be spinning until 2am most weekends.

Best Bars tip: Check out the regular theme nights, where you can enjoy four courses of food paired with a particular spirit or wine for just £25. Sold.
