This luxurious drinking hole is hidden in the depths of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, below the West Corner Diner and is a real surprise.
But if you’re expecting a den of iniquity or a bar styled as a speakeasy, you’ll be somewhat surprised as this Manchester cocktail bar is fresh, stylish and sophisticated.
The venue is dressed with a heavy nod to the Art Deco period, featuring cool lines and geometric shapes covered in bright, shiny brass.
Corner Cocktail Club’s menu is in sync with the bar’s design, featuring classics that date back to the golden age of mixed drinks.
Drinks on the menu are broken into four parts, segmented by the style of serve – highballs, old fashioned, coupette and punch. There’s also a small menu of food platters, just in case you need a little sustenance.
Prices for drinks range from £7.50 to £9, so an evening in the bar won’t necessarily break the bank.
On the Highball menu, the Beer Here Now (£8) is made using fennel-infused Powers Gold, lemon juice, honey, plum bitters and lemon zest.
The Old Fashioned menu features drinks like the Corner Breakfast Club (£8.50) made with Bushmills 10-Year, fat-washed bacon syrup and truffle bitters.
Sir Thomas Phillips (£8) features on the Coupette menu and has made using Bushmills Black Bush, Mr Black, Tawny Port, orgeat and a whole egg.
Finally, drinks on the Punch menu include Tea Smoke (£9), which features Bimber Oak, Noir Fume, apple juice, vanilla syrup and hazelnut syrup.
