An insiders guide to eating and drinking in Levenshulme

1 year ago

Levenshulme is an artsy, multicultural, community-focused former township equidistant between Stockport and Manchester city centre. In the past decade, the region has become home to an ever more edgy array of independent bars and cafes sidling up next to its myriad chicken shops and booking agents. The juxtaposition of painfully modern and proudly unpretentious is all part of the charm.

In 2013, Levy Market launched and has arguably been the glue that has brought the whole community together, becoming more and more popular and lively over the years. If you’re looking for truly community-driven events, a world of flavours and that all-important craft ale or natural wine to lubricate proceedings, look no further than Levy.

    The Klondyke Club

    Restaurant - British

    No round-up of Levenshulme’s social spaces could exclude The Klondyke Club AKA The Levenshulme Bowling and Social Club. This century-old social club was originally a bowling alley and oddly the name comes from the news of the influx of gold-rush migrators from America to northern Canada’s Klondike region. In 2019 The Committee Room reopened as a speakeasy-style bar.
