Manchester Northern Quarter Bars
The Northern Quarter has established itself as the most popular place to go for a night in Manchester, with some of the city's best independent bars and traditional pubs to be found here.

Located around the revamped High Street and the 'original Northern Quarter' on Oldham Street, it's next to both the Arndale Centre and Piccadilly Gardens, and now stretches up to Piccadilly Basin, next to the station, taking its name from the M4 postcode, in which it sits.

The Northern Quarter has always been famed for it's emporiums and independent shops, selling all sorts of weird and wonderful products, from retro clothing and rare vinyl, to collectable comics and board games, skate boards and hipster bicycles, to smoking paraphernalia and unusual art.

Today it is equally famed for its nightlife and is the most vibrant area of Manchester, with many young professionals living in the Northern Quarter's flats.

There's a whole host of privately owned bars and pubs in the Northern Quarter, with new establishments seemingly opening up on a monthly basis, each offering a fine array of foreign beers, local brewed casks, cocktails, spirits and food.

The Northern Quarter also has a high proportion of live music venues with the long standing Band On The Wall, Night & Day Cafe, Dry Bar and Matt & Phreds Jazz Bar all enjoying a great resurgence.
