Bars near The MEN Arena Manchester

Whilst the Manchester Evening News Arena is on the edge of the city centre at Victoria Station, there are many bars and pubs less than a 5 minute walk away.
The traditional pubs that surround the Shambles around Exchange Square in the Millennium Quarter provide the most popular pre-concert meeting places and as a result get very busy, especially in summer, whilst The Printworks complex, with its many bars, nightclubs and restaurants seems to be the most popular destination after the gigs.
With so many bars near the MEN Arena, you really are spoilt for choice - from traditional Manchester pubs to classy designer cocktail bars, party bars or Irish theme bars, there literally is something for everybody here.
