“The Liquor Store” in the heart of the city centre has its Mancunian roots coursing through its veins. We opened the doors in November 2012 on the corner of Blackfriars Street and Parsonage, situated just off Deansgate, underneath the Maybrook House building. Bare brickwork, vintage Los Angeles Liquor Store signage and a bar crammed with a collection of the most desirable liquors from around the globe are just some of the features waiting to greet as you enter.
October 2016 saw the opening of our second site at the new First Street development, opposite the old Hacienda. A big sister to the original, First Street has an open kitchen showcasing American inspired dishes with a Mancunian twist. Open for lunch daily from 12pm but with the back bar & hospitality expected from our original.
Amongst the subtle nods towards American bar culture, the standout theme over both venues is the city of Manchester. One whole wall is dedicated to our city’s most loved exports with everyone from Liam & Noel, Ian Brown and Morrissey to Nobby Stiles, Davy Jones, The Bee Gees and even Les Dawson watching you as you drink. Passionate service from one of the city’s best bar teams delivers a whole host of cocktail creations such as “St Hendrick’s Elderly Rose”, “Oasis” and the famous “Tina Turner Died!”
Quirky, original, creative but inherently stylish… just like the city itself. The bar ambience is transformed at 5pm with the help of its indie, rock’n’roll, classic rock and pop soundtrack blend. featuring more than a fair share of Mancunian favourites.
The Liquor Store’s intimate atmosphere and late opening hours, seven days a week showcase the true Manchester party spirit and deals for all hospitality industry workers, the Liquor Store is storming Manchester. The original venue at Blackfriars has recently won “Best Late Night Venue” for the second time in the Eat, drink, sleep awards!
