Speak in Code

Manchester, Greater Manchester

Situated between Jackson Row and Lloyd Street, just off Manchester’s Deansgate, is cocktail bar Speak in Code that launched onto the scene in 2018.

Offering high quality service, delicious food and of course outstanding cocktails, Speak in Code is an exceptional venue in the north of England and a must visit for those near and far.

Bringing industrial New York vibes to the area, the award-winning bar uses an extensive and imaginative list of ingredients to its exciting plant-based menu.

You’ll sip and dine in a relaxed environment featuring bare brick walls, subdued lighting, and dark wooden touches as well as plush velvety furnishings. It is an exceptionally sophisticated venue perfect for visiting with close friends or a significant other.

From the entrance, a Victorian archway above an unassuming, yet handsome, black door, right through into the main bar area, it is an experience you must have at least once.

Drinks have included Track 13, made using Grape Skin Vodka, chamomile wine, pink grapefruit and foamer; Track 11 made with Sipsmith London Dry Gin, Genepi, homemade white charentes and SiC Spent Botanical Bitters; and Hot Buttered Rum Old Fashioned, made with fat-washed golden rum with plant-based butter, winter demerara mix and cocao bitters.

The bar also sells, at various times of the year, cocktail giftsets, with Christmas 2021 including an Old Fashioned version with each ingredient expertly mixed and packaged into a neat present.
