The Deansgate area (not to be mistaken with Deansgate Locks
, a mile away) 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 Manchester Arena
and Royal Exchange Theatre
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, wine lounges, Tiki dives and rock clubs.
As well as the original Living Room
, Deansgate is also home to the very first La Tasca
, started here before growing into a huge national chain, whilst local bar operator Living Ventures
, also grew into a massive national chain after starting out as JW Johnsons cocktail bar, in the pemises now occupied by their Botanist
