Manchester’s Northern Quarter is home to some of the most quirkiest bars, eateries and shops I’ve ever seen.
Whatever time of the day, Manchester’s Northern Quarter has something going on; a quiet catch up with a friend, to a Friday night blow out – there’s something for everybody.
Each bar and restaurant has that rustic, edgy feel to it, but every place you visit is unique. From Tiki bars to a cosy ‘old man’ pub, The Northern Quarter has got them all!
A staple fashion district for those who prefer something from the norm, The Northern Quarter does not disappoint. Manchester’s iconic Afflecks is an indoor market, perfect for those with an interest in alternative fashion and unique lifestyle. For Those with a love for vintage fashion, you’ll be in your element with The Northern Quarter’s variety of second hand stores.
The thing I love about the Northern Quarter, is that it’s not just what’s on the main roads, many places, and amazing street art(!), can be discovered down the side streets. I’d highly recommend having an afternoon wander around just to take it all in!
