One Night in Manchester

Posted on:

Dinner

Sapporo Teppanyaki

If you’re looking to be pushed out of your comfort zone, this Japanese offers a unique dining experience if you’re new to the cuisine. In Sapporo Teppanyaki guests are led to their own or shared Teppanyaki table where the dishes are cooked in front of your very eyes by the restaurants array of skilled chefs. All the food is fresh and the seafood in particular is a delight; however there are ranging chicken and meat dishes to cater to those still cautious when it comes to experimenting. We recommend you push the boat out and also try a Japanese whiskey from behind the bar, as a perfect wind down over some conversation over your meal.

Choices

Tucked away in Castlefield, Choices was voted one of the top ten riverside restaurants by the Sunday Times. If you like honest British food cooked to perfection then this is the place to head, thanks to a frequently changing menu which utilises good seasonal produce. The cottage pie is particularly popular amongst diners with daily fish specials also proving well-liked. The décor is clean, stylish and the walk in wine fridge adds an interesting dimension to an establishment already brimming with character.

Drinks

Epernay Champagne and Cocktail bar

Epernay is a glamorous and elegant bar for those looking to avoid some of Manchester’s more student orientated drinking scenes. Epernay presents an impressive range of drinks, boasting more than 100 champagnes which offers one of the most extensive selections in the country. Don’t fret if you’re more of a mixer or have a different tipple, the bartenders supply an excellent range of cocktails and spirits which can be enjoyed in a really laid back and friendly atmosphere. Prices aren’t cheap, however Espernay is a must visit if you prefer a classy establishment to enjoy sociably with friends.

The Alchemist

The Alchemist is widely known as one of the best bars in Manchester by locals and it’s not hard to see why. Always popular, and often crawling with patrons due to its city centre location, the bar mixed a great ambiance with a stylish food and drinks menu. Each cocktail is carefully hand crafted by the highly knowledgeable ‘alchemists’ who use the highest quality ingredients available to create some completely unusual concoctions. The drinks are as much about theatre as they are sustenance with nostalgia inspired bottles, lavender foam, dry ice and Bunsen burners all used to create truly unique drinks. Don’t fret if a fashionable cocktail doesn’t take your fancy, The Alchemist also offers lager on tap.

Entertainment

The Comedy Store

If you’re staying in Manchester, a must see is the world famous Comedy Store. With tickets from as little as £10 and fantastic acts every night of the week, the Comedy Store is a true mecca for comedy enthusiasts. Some of the biggest names in world stand-up have graced the Comedy Store stages of London and Manchester including, Eddie Izzard, Mike Myers and Lee Evans and many familiar faces do unexpectedly ‘drop in’ to try out material.

Mint Lounge

Mint Lounge is a popular attraction for locals, least of all because it is home to Manchester’s longest running club night in Funkademia. Every Saturday night, Funkademia plays what it describe as ‘a chronological history of soul’ to a regularly full house. It plays the best soul, funk and smooth R&B music in the city but also holds other music events throughout the week if your taste is better suited to dubstep or house. You may need to book tickets in advance for some of the more popular events.

Valentine’s Day… This is what Wikipedia has to say…

Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly shortened to Valentine’s Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It was deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines“). The day first became associated with romantic lovein the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly loveflourished.

Modern Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shapedoutline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Manchester gets 5 stars!

Posted on: No Comments
Check out this review written about Manchester Roomzzz by cosmiccar from Belfast… they had a great weekend in our Manchester city centre location!
5 of 5 stars 
“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 1 December 2011 
Roomzzz Aparthotel was one of the best places I’ve stayed in. The location of the hotel is ideal, we found everything walkable and easy to find. It’s located opposite Chinatown and very near the town hall, which had a lovely Christmas market when we visited at the end of November.

I had booked a smart studio for three nights for my boyfriend’s birthday and when we arrived we had been upgraded to a grande studio. The room was large and spotlessly clean. The bedroom section was a good size with a large, very comfy bed and a huge tv. The kitchen area was very clean and had a good selection of equipment. Beside this was the shower room; which had two rain shower heads, a sink and vanity mirror. The toilet was in a separate room, with a sink etc. The room also had a desk and apple mac computer which was a nice touch.

The staff at this hotel were probably the most friendly I’ve encountered, very willing to help.

The only slight negative was probably the breakfast, but I expected this. It had a selection of pastries and fruit, juices and tea and coffee. I would’ve liked more breads, like bagels etc, but this may have been our fault as we were always down quite late! We bought some cereal and had it in the room, which was handy as you have the kitchen facilities anyway.

I would definitely be back to Roomzz and have already recommended it to my friends and family.
