Balck Dog Ballroom NQ Balck Dog Ballroom NQ

Since its inception back in 2010, High Five, a charity event founded by Andrew Scott has raised over £20,000 for various charities, including Macmillan, Save the Children and various local Manchester charities. For their latest ‘raving for a reason’ event, The Bunker at Black Dog Ballroom NQ will be welcoming the latest High Five on Saturday 25th November in aid of a family severely affected by the terrible attack at Manchester Arena.

Back in May our great city was rocked by this incident that would change the lives of many forever. One of those people was Martin Hibbert who was caught up in the atrocity along with his daughter, Eve, tragically Martin was left paralysed from the waist down. Since then Martin has been coming to terms with this and his story was recently captured on the documentary Manchester: 100 days after the attackThe way that he has coped with how this will change his life is truly inspirational, so High Five decided to help Martin, Eve and their family with the more practical adjustments they are going to need to make, and that is where ALL the proceeds of this High Five will be going.

As ever, High Five have pulled together a line-up of DJs who know how to deliver. First up a pair who have over 30 years combined experience of playing in Manchester, and every High Five event since the beginning, The Warehouse Project residents Krysko and Greg Lord. They will also be joined by one half of AudioJack, James Rial, who will be flying in from Ibiza just to play this event. As ever these guys are doing this for nothing so we can maximise the money raised for this very special cause.

Running from 10:00 – 04:00am on Saturday 25th November, tickets are available at a standard price of £10 per ticket, or £25 + a bottle of Prosecco, tickets can be purchased here with all proceeds going to Martin Hibbert and his family. ~ November 2017

The Bay Horse Tavern - Northern Quarter
The Bay Horse Tavern - Northern Quarter
The Bay Horse Tavern Opens

The Bay Horse Tavern will swing open its doors officially for business on Monday 23rd October. Situated on Thomas Street, The Bay Horse has been a Manchester institution since the Georgian era. It was once The Bay Horse Hotel and a common drinking ground for factory workers. The historic venue was burned to the ground in the 1990’s. It was rebuilt and became The Bay Horse Pub.

The Bay Horse Tavern - designed by Lyndon Higginson is his modern take on the humble local boozer. Higginson says “You see it in the news every week; another pub closes its doors! I hate that all these places are closing or getting turned into shit bars. We’re on a mission to bring back the local boozer. We’re so excited about The Horse. The place was pretty grim with no redeeming features so we’ve ripped it apart and started from the ground up. It’s our modern take on the local. You can play darts or grab some amazing food, order a cask beer or get a fancy cocktail. It’s The Rovers Return meets Soho House! We just want everyone to feel at home.”

The newly remodelled pub provides the perfect location to eat, drink and party, with the finest quality pub grub and an extensive selection of beers, wines & spirits. The Bay Horse Tavern will serve up small plates of classic British dishes full of locally sourced produce, including suckling pig, chicken and beef from the rotisserie served with fresh bread, baked in-house daily.

With the trend for small plate dining growing rapidly in the UK, diners are looking for a more social element to eating out, as small plates are shared and passed around to encourage social eating. The newly refurbished pub features a large oval dining table at the centre of the basement restaurant. Going back to its roots, the drinks offering at The Bay Horse Tavern will be focused around locally produced beer, wines by the glass and Manchester gins paired with fruit, botanicals and tonics. From casks, kegs, bottles, cans or cocktails, the bar is fully equipped for any drinking occasion.

The Bay Horse Tavern, located on Thomas Street in the NQ will be open daily.The Bay Horse Tavern is the first restaurant focused operation from The Liars Group, who’s portfolio consists of Cane and Grain (including Science and Industry) on Thomas Street, Crazy Pedro’s on Bridge Street, along with a second Crazy Pedro’s site underneath Afflecks Palace and The Liars Club ~ October 2017

Forget the yellow brick road - Manchester’s gin lovers should follow the bubbles this week to enjoy free gin and champagne cocktails in Manchester’s swankiest bar Impossible. The venue, which recently won Best New Bar in the 2017 Late Night Awards, is set to banish workweek blues and wow thirsty passers by with a series of surprise happy hours.
Gin lovers should keep their eyes peeled and look out for the venue’s already infamous sparkling bubbles pouring out from the roof over Peter Street as it will signify the start of their biggest gin giveaway ever. Each time the bubbles flow the first ten people to share photos of the bubbles declaring ‘I Love Gin & Bubbles’ using the hashtag #impossible will be rewarded with a free French 75 - the house classic gin and champagne cocktail.
The happy hours could happen at any point between 12pm and 8pm Monday to Friday and clues will be available via live streaming from the venue's social media channels - Facebook and Instagram. A timeless classic of the cocktail scene, the French 75 is sophisticated, elegant and refreshing.  Named after the French "Canon de 75 modèle 1897", a ruthless and efficient weapon from the First World War, this stunning aperitif is likely to have been created by Harry MacElhone at Harry's American Bar, Paris, in 1925.
Simplicity is something that many classic cocktails have in common, and the combination of a g'vine French premium gin from cognac, a beautiful Champagne, freshly squeezed lemon juice and a hint of sugar is the definition of simplicity. The subtle complexity of the ingredients complement each other without being overpowered. Located on St. Peter's Square off Peter Street, Impossible has an exquisite offering of 74 gins from around the world. It offers a variety of bespoke cocktails, an extensive bottle list plus a selection of beers, wines and champagnes ~ October 2017
