The Deansgate area (not to be mistaken with Deansgate Locks) offers some of the trendiest bars in Manchester city centre.
Located at the top end of Deansgate, the mile long road that runs through the city centre, it's surrounded by the designer department stores and popular shopping streets and is a stone's throw from the MEN Arena.
As a result, it's popular with trendsetters, concert goers and shoppers alike.
Whilst some of the fashionable bars on Deansgate require you to have your best clobber on, there are others which are less formal and there's a good selection of cocktail bars, traditional pubs and wine lounges.
As well as the original Living Room, Deansgate is also home to the very first La Tasca, the tapas bar that has since grown into a huge national chain.
