Rain Bar – 80 Great Bridgewater Street, Castlefield, Manchester, M1 5JG map
- Rain Bar is in a wonderful canal side location, a stone’s throw from the Bridgewater Hall. Located half way between Oxford Road and Deansgate Locks, it’s a popular starting location or stop off for reveller’s making their way from one area of town to another. Owned by local brewers JW Lees, it’s named after the umbrella factory that once stood here and the classy photographs on the wall celebrate Manchester’s wet climate. The ground floor is in the style of a dark traditional pub, whilst upstairs is a bright modern bar (often reserved for private functions). There’s loads of tables alongside the canal and it can get very busy during the summer and on concert nights at The Bridgewater (which is accessible along the towpath which directly links the Rain Bar with the Hall).
