Manchester Bars - Castlefield Area

Castlefield is without doubt the most beautiful area of town to go for a drink, especially in summer when it can get busy. Located alongside the Bridgewater and Rochdale Canals, Museum of Science & Industry and the old Roman fortress on Liverpool Road, it houses some of Manchester's best independent bars and pubs together with some of the city's finest restaurants. A wonderfully historic setting, it's an area you can't help but fall in love with.

When bar culture really hit Manchester in the late 80's, stylish Mancunians flocked to Castelfield's trendy canalside bars however the area suffered badly when fashion dictated the crowds walk a few metres along the cobbled road to the nearby Deansgate Locks. The likes of Quay Bar, Box Bar and Jackson's Wharf all closed down long before the controversial Beetham Tower blocked their once beautiful view of Manchester's skyline. Their architectually brilliant shells left to decay, showing glimpses of what once was, tragically awaiting the property developer's crushing ball to make way for more luxury apartments. Fortunately, there's still some wonderful bars and pubs here, seemingly busier than ever before.
