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.

If you’re planning a night in Manchester, make sure you check out our website for a luxurious end to your evening.

These three guests below stayed in Manchester Roomzzz… read what they have to say!
“Great Aparthotel”

Reviewed 3 October 2011 by Chalky 31 from Cheshire


Recommended by a friend this was a good call and a nice change from our normal hotel. Parking is very easy with the clean (not like an NCP) and well lit Q Piazza at the back. Ask for a parking voucher at the hotel, it reduced my ticket to £12.50 (3pm-8am).

We had Room 503, a suite – not in the traditional sense, but a large room anyway. Well furnished, very clean and with great facilities. The bathroom is also large, with a big rainshower.

Being an old building it is quite stuffy, and the aircon was needed. Our room was attic style and had large skylights with electric blinds. There were smaller skylights below which did open, but had no window stays to keep them open, a shame as we like fresh air in the room.

We didn’t use it, but there was a good selection of food and drink in The Pantry area at reception.

The Grab and Go breakfast was just right with juice, coffee/tea, pastries and fruit. The staff were friendly and helpful, thank you.

“Excellent option in Central Manchester”

Reviewed 4 October by Peedlewif from Orkney


This is good value apartment style accommodation with a continental breakfast thrown in. Good basic kitchen facility, huge bed, widecreen TV which is also a computer with internet access – we stayed one night but i think it would be a great option for business travellers who don’t want to eat out every night or drink alone in a bar. Very stylish, lovely reception staff, very quiet, would use again.

“Roomzzz Manchester”

Reviewed 7 October 2011 by AndyH from Bournemouth


Stayed here for two nights in early October 2011. Excellent location in city centre with a short walk to the nearest tram station. Hotel is opposite chinatown which is good for a visit or a meal. Nice greeting at reception, very friendly and helpful as first visit to Manchester. Rooms are superb with kitchenette, plenty of space, large bathroom / shower area which was excellent. As it’s in the city centre it can be noisy at night depending on what part of the hotel you’re in but you have to expect this due to the location. No on street parking but large car park right next to hotel although could be viewed as expensive but is discounted for hotel residents.

Couldn’t find too much to fault if you want a central location, good value for money and helpful staff. Free grab and go breakfast too which was good. Would definitely stay in this in another Roomzzz again.

But don’t just take our word for it! JohnG from Bournemouth left us this review on Trip Advisor:

“I started my stay in July but am still staying at Roomzzz City West. I would be happy to recommend Roomzzz to anyone. I have found them very accommodating and the staff extremely polite and friendly. It makes a refreshing change to some of the impersonal hotels that I have stayed at where I have just felt like a number. It is far more a home from home and has all the domestic appliances that most people would have at home.

I can’t praise Roomzzz enough”
