Bars in Castlefield
This leafy district is close to Manchester city centre, and is home to some of the more serene, summer-orientated bars. Castlefield has it's fair share of traditional boozers - The Ox on Liverpool Road is highly recommended - as well as more modern bars. Barca, overlooking the Castlefield Basin, is a more trendy place to drink, and over the road from that is Dukes 92. Closer to the City Centre, Cask (Liverpool Road) has a wide selection of beers, and a summers garden, whilst Dimitris is a bar and tapas restaurant that's perfect for a quick pint.

29 Liverpool Road
Indie and Underground bar
If you can make it through the spring loaded double doors at the front then you'll be rewarded with one of the finest selection of beers in Manchester. Cask is most definitely a beer drinkers pub, but not at the expense of the d?cor or ambience?it's not the largest bar in the world but it seems to cope admirably with the influx of visitors. A small patio area at the back will provide more drinking space in Summer (sadly it was raining when we visited last) and it's a much needed addition to an area that is slowly losing it's independent bars.
Cheap and Cheerful bar
Dukes 92 is situated in the heart of Castlefield overlooking the Bridgewater canal and within walking distance of Deansgate Locks. Like a spacious version of a typical pub, Dukes is laid back and low-key and has plenty of outdoor space at the front and back. Like most of the bars in Castlefield this place is for summer drinking, once the sun comes out it suddenly gets very busy!
5 Arundel Street
A small, but lively, bar on Ellesmere Street in Castefield. Built beneath the Moho building, part of the area that has almost entirely been taken over by Urban Splash developments, this is the second license premises in the area, and the time seems (almost) right for a venue of this calibre. Four years ago a private members bar opened up beneath Timber Wharf, but with barely 600 people living in 'nu' Castlefield, the sliver of land between the real Castlefield and Hulme, the venture didn't last long. Now the area is much different, with the redeveloped St Georges Church, the award winning Moho and Burton Place, plus the nearby developments by Dandara, there's quite a community building up. Binary hope to capitalise on all the youngsters who live nearby, and they've bagged themselves a reasonably late license (11am Mon to Wed, midnight on Thur, Fri and Sat). Food served until 9pm, sandwiches, soups, sharing platters, fresh pizzas (also available for takeaway) Happy hour available, selected beers and cocktails, 2 for 1, Mon-Thu & Sat, 5-9, Fri, 4:30-9, All Day Sunday free wifi, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii Large screen TV for Sky Sports and Setanta Quiz nights on Tuesdays
Indie and Underground bar
A place that truly comes alive in the summer, Dimitris is located in the Campfield Market building at the junction of Deansgate and Liverpool Road (Close to Deansgate Locks). It's more of an eating establishment than an actual bar, but its still worthy of a mention here due to the outdoor-indoor eating at the back. Campfield is one of those strange twisted elderly buildings that probably played host to hangings or witch burning trials (or possibly a market) but has ended up being a restaurant. Character drips from every rusting bolt, and there's a covered walkway at the rear that acts as a dining room. Probably the closest thing you can get to a Mediterranean eating experience in Manchester.
20 Castle Street
Style Conscious bar
It's a risky business opening a bar (or bar-cum-restaurant) and the decision to site Alberts Shed in Castlefield couldn't have been an easy one. The area has seen a number of high profile closures, so it was a brave decision for the owners. The gamble has so far paid off, as the swanky Alberts Shed has proved to be a winner and the quality of food and drinks is excellent, without breaking the bank. During the Summer they're happy to open up their glass frontage and let you sit outside with the rabble from the nearby Dukes 92, who aren't half as bad as we make them sound. Sitting in the sun eating Pasta and drinking wine was something that we enjoyed this year.
