Odder December 14, 2006

OdderOdder Odder, 14 Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 5QA map

  • The creators of northern quarter favourite, odd bar, have snapped up the oxford road premises vacated by zumbar, to bring us odder.  This is a great addition to this bustling area of Manchester and is popular with students, workers at the BBC opposite and visitors to The Dancehouse Theatre next door.  The theme to the bar is ecclectic to say the least, the décor is refreshing and adds to a very warm atmosphere. Two rooms make up the new venue, and it has been completely changed since it was zumbar, with the space being utilised more sensibly.  With a full range of drinks on offer and the same friendly, relaxed attitude we’ve come to expect from the staff at odd, odder is set to be a great success.

The Old Monkey

The Old MonkeyThe Old Monkey  90-92 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 4GX map

  • A Joseph Holts owned traditional working class pub, the old monkey is deceptivly large inside, whether you drink downstairs or upstairs the atmosphere is the same, this is a traditional pub with friendly staff and the manchester brewed holt’s beers.  One of the great things about Joey Holt’s pubs was their prices.  Whilst these have gradually increased over the years, they are still extremely cheap.  If you want a pint of true northern beer then grab a pint of Joesph Holts bitter, a unique taste which goes down extremely easily and after about six pints magically makes your legs disappear, this can be troublesome if you then visit the toilets for the first time, as they seem to be located in a different postcode!

Orchid Lounge Karaoke Bar

Orchid Lounge Karaoke BarOrchid Lounge Karaoke Bar  54 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 4QU map

  • ”I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky”, “I did it my way” and “dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen” are all words that you’ll hear in the orchid lounge, although it’s not exactly called singing! Situated up a staircase directly above the orchid lounge restaurant on portland street, this bar could easily be missed if you didn’t know it was there. The bar is tiny, but get a good group of freinds together, get very drunk and go for the laugh. There isn’t a great choice of beer although there’s loads of spirits and the staff look after you well.  If karaoke is your thing then this is definitely a bar you should visit.

Overdraught November 16, 2006

OverdraughtOverdraught 121 Princess Street, Manchester, M1 7AG map

  • Whilst Overdraught is located just a short distance from Manchester’s Gay Village, it’s a world apart from the finely polished bars that you’ll find in the Village.  Popular with students, it’s a dark indie rock bar mostly used as a pre-club boozer for 5th Avenue which is located underneath.  It temporarily changed names in 2005 to Rendevous, only to reappear as Overdraught in 2006.
