Chorlton Ees

Located between Chorlton and Sale, this great little haven can be your escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.



This Chorlton bar is a fantastic place to hang out. In the daytime the café serves great tea, coffee and light bites. In the evening the music is turned up and you can bop the night away.


Royal Exchange

This theatre has a real mix of the old and new. Audiences are treated to a close up view of the action and made to feel a part of it.


This & That Cafe

A great place to go for an authentic curry in the Northern Quarter. The quality is unbeatable and a massive plateful will get you change from a fiver.


Fab Cafe

Share the dancefloor with loads of weird and wonderful things in this great place to go for a bit of a dance.
