Dukes 92 – Dukes 92, 18 – 25 Castle Street, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4LZ map
- Castlefield is the best place to be in the summer, with canal side drinking and historic buildings. With it’s large patio seating, barbeque and great views, Dukes 92 is where everybody flocks to. But it’s not just in the summer that Dukes gets busy – thanks largely to it’s wonderful choice of pates and cheeses, superb choice of beers and wines and open plan warehouse style layout – it’s remained popular whilst others around it have closed down and been lost forever. Named after the canal lock it sits next to, Dukes Lock should have been numbered No.1 lock as it’s at the bottom of the Rochdale Canal. However the canal was built by a Yorkshireman who refused to have No.1 in Lancashire, therefore the usual numbering method was reversed and Dukes Lock was given No.92 instead! Upstairs is available to hire and gets popular with birthdays and office parties, whilst next door is the superb Albert’s Shed restaurant and the Castlefield Rooms, available to hire, and packed almost everyday with weddings, birthdays and corporate events. This is truely one of Manchester’s best bars in one of the best lcoations.
