Serving up Po Boys and great cocktails, Henry C is a cosy neighbourhood bar with a heavy New Orleans influence. As with many newer bars and dining spots in Chorlton, its premises used to be a shop, with large windows looking out at the goodie-two-shoes grocery, Unicorn. But everything in moderation, right? You can pick up a tote full of chickpeas for the week and grab a grilled cheese sarnie and an Old Fashioned as a reward.
Most of the menu involves sloppy, meaty stuff crammed into a soft slipper of bread, NOLA style. Current hits include Bloody Mary brisket with horseradish mayo for dipping, while vegans are catered for with a jackfruit chilli alternative. The cocktails are what get people really excited though. Our (very well travelled) reviewer found his Sazerac and Negroni to be right on point. Negronis are a fiver on Thursdays, by the way. Fancy something a bit different? They do clever and not OTT twists too, adding things like black pepper gin, Thai basil and Lapsang Souchong, with thankfully not a cocktail umbrella in sight.
