Oh, stunning: The Manchester bars serving Negroni

1 month ago

If you’re lucky, they might add some Prosecco to it.

If there’s one thing you can use to get the sum of a bar, it’s how it mixes its classic cocktails. Negroni is one of our all-time favourites and a well-balanced aperitif is wonderful to sip in a cosy cocktail bar just watching the world go by.

We thought we’d put together some of the places in Manchester that we’d recommend for a great Negroni – whether you ask for Prosecco in it is up to you.

  • Manchester City Centre

    Blinker Bar

    Bars

    The name for Blinker Bar comes from a forgotten classic three-ingredient cocktail made from rye, grapefruit and raspberry. It’s this curious collection of ingredients that inspired ex-Gordon Ramsay bars boss Dan Berger to create a menu that changes seasonally but still honours the classics.

    Elnecot

    Grand Pacific

    Restaurant - Pan Asian

    Grand Pacific is the work of Living Ventures and it easily outshines its sibling venues in terms of pure glamour. Not in a big chandeliers, glass and chrome Spinningfields way, but with a decadent blend of colonial Raffles-style grandeur and some of the best of the city’s Victorian architecture.

  • Book Now Chinatown

    Namii Kitchen & Cocktails

    Restaurant - Vietnamese

    It’s got neon, it’s got pastels, it’s got faux foliage, it’s got innovative cocktails and it’s got Pan Asian cuisine with a definite lean Vietnam-wards. It calls itself “authentically modern”, but faithful to the Vietnamese way of life, it recommends ordering food for the table, tapas style.

    Neon Tiger

    Restaurant - Thai

    Meaning “grill house” in the rural northern Thai regions from whence it hails, Baan Yang offers a method of cooking and smoking meat and veg over flames, barbecue style, and teams well with the casual “urban drinking space” concept of Neon Tiger, both booze and food served late.

    Three Little Words is housed under the arches at the lesser-visited end of Watson Street, near Beetham Tower.
