When it comes Millennials, we’re a generation of want-it-now, over-thinkers with little time to spare and a burgeoning desire to take part in social media worthy activities. So considering we’ve all got to get on with our busy schedules, I’ve derived a list for all your entertainment needs, so you don’t need to trawl the internet on a Thursday night looking for places to spend your weekend (oh, and that will free up more time to internet shop too…).

Relaxed Vibes and Great Service at Dukes 92

Did I mention that millennials are time conscious?! Which is why a trip to Dukes 92 is worth of a visit, particularly if you’re impatient about food (and let’s face it, who isn’t?!). Great service and friendly staff mean you can get your food in approx 3.45 mins (oh, millennials are also prone to exaggeration too… But it’s a similar time frame! Put it this way, food arrives quickly). Not to mention that their meals are reasonably priced for the delicious quality!

Located right near Deansgate station, you can jump off the train and head straight to bar hopping, making use of their outdoor terrace and heated seating areas. A stroll along the canal right next to Dukes 92 is also a must!**

**But probably advisable before a few proseccos!
