Best Spots in Manchester for a Good Old Drink

I'm surprised I've never really covered this before, but in the past year I've ventured out a bit and gone around town looking for the best places for a drink, from cocktails to ciders there's a range of places across Manchester that deserve a bit of a spotlight. I like a mixture of drinks and there's nothing worse than going to a new bar and choosing the same drink you have everywhere else, I like to try something different each time. So if you're looking for a new place to grab a drink take note of where am about to mention, from the Northern Quarter to Spinningfields. 

First up, is Jimmy's if you're into the more indie scene of Manchester this is a great place to check out. They have a great range of cocktails, great music that you can't miss and they house a lot of gigs around the year. Some of my best gigs from the past year have been at Jimmy's and it's somewhere you really can't miss. It's a bit different to the rest on the lis…

Hidden Gems - Cow

I mentioned this lovely place a while ago in my vintage shopping post. But I didn't really do it that much justice. Cow has a special place in my heart and I am always so excited to go in there. I've managed to get more and more stuff from there recently. It's always good to go in frequently to get your hands on the new stuff and plus why wouldn't you want to go in there anywhere.

It's got a vintage feel to it, from old sweatshirts to sun dresses they have a good mix of everything. If you're a brand lover check out the top floor like a hawk it has the best bits. I managed to get a Tommy Hilfiger shirt here for £16 and it's one of my favourite shirts. It really holds everything, even a pair of cowboy boots that I am desperate to get my hands on.

Price wise it isn't the cheapest but with the amount of brands the place has i'm not surprised. It's one of the best places to just have a look round in. Whether you're on the hunt for something or not. I went in there with nothing in mind and walked out with a bag and shirt so you'll definitely find it difficult not to pick something up in here. I find the struggle harder to not buy anything so if somebody could please say they do this as well that'd be great.

The main winning point for this place is the location. It's based slap bang in the middle of the northern quarter with music shops, cafes, and other vintage shops squeezed into a couple of roads you can't really miss this place. When I first started coming into Manchester Cow was my direction point. It's easy to spot and close to everything.

Do I even need to give this place anymore brownie points. They have seamstress and steamers there as well so items that come in and need a little tlc can be sorted and tidied up. It helps especially if you aren't the best seamstress in the world aka me to have that little of help.

Overall this place is a gold mine, it has everything you'd need readily available. It was one of the first vintage shops I checked out and it's somewhere i will always crawl back to. Let me know if you've been there before and what your favourite pieces are from there.
