Dusk Til Pawn
With a window full of ancient TVs and H Samuel jewellery, you could mistake this place as a relic from the days when the NQ wasn’t even the NQ, it was just that bit of town between Piccadilly and Shude Hill. But in typical modern day Northern Quarter style, Dusk Til Pawn isn’t a pawn shop, as the red neon sign suggests. It’s a hidden cocktail bar, and a good one at that.
Ran by the same team who made NoHo a hit next door, Dusk Til Pawn serves up carefully-crafted cocktails, beers and spirits, including, of course ‘the pawn star martini’ because it’d be daft not to.
Sit outside on the square or head indoors for dark wood fittings and leather seating. It has a cosy, hideaway feel that makes it easy to forget whatever’s happening outside and get lost in the cocktail menu. You’ll find all the classics and more – and skilled bartenders who know how to make anything else you might be hankering after.
