Hidden bars? What, don’t they want your money? Yes they do, they’re just doing it differently. And with a city as big as Manchester, sometimes it’s nice to find somewhere that hasn’t been well and truly Magaluffed (hello Northern Quarter). These are the bars for those who want their nights out to be a bit special, a bit secretive, a bit – dare we say – elitist?
Some are simply low-profile and don’t buy into sky-high marketing budgets, some take the notion of ‘hidden away’ full circle, becoming a topsy-turvy PR campaign all of its own. Try them all, for the bragging rights if nothing else.
