Trof was the OG Mission Mars bar in manchester and it’s still got ‘top Manchester night out’ written all over its labyrinth three stories.
Having said that about nights-out, Trof is just as well known for its morning-after comfort feeds as its disco cocktails. The Sunday Roast has a reputation for greatness, and the weekend brunch menu is popular. Go for the full English breakfast or chorizo hash with poached eggs and hollandaise on sourdough.
During the week, it offers small plates and burgers as well as lunch and dinner ‘plates’ such as chicken and chips with burnt lemon and caper herb salsa, or vegan Katsu curry with chilli and lime crispy tofu.
There’s a weekly quiz on a Wednesday night and DJs mark the shift to a more upbeat, party vibe at the weekends. Drinks-wise, there’s a dedicated bourbon bar on the first floor with some American rarities as well as the familiar names. You’ll also find five beers on tap plus a curated selection of cans and bottles.
It’s worth knowing that Trof has one of the longest happy hours in the NQ – it runs Monday-Friday 4pm-9pm, and includes post-work favourites such as £20 bottles of prosecco and £5 cocktails.
