Bar Below review

This tiny little basement bar is located at the junction of Canal Street and Sackville Street and the recent refit has improved upon what was a great venue - although very very small. In fact the only bar in Manchester that's smaller is the nearby Temple of Convenience on Oxford Street, and that used to be a public toilet.

Down the stairs you've got a swish looking bar, seating at the back and some rather large toilet cubicles. For liquid refreshment this is one of the best stocked bars in the village, with a huge range of spirits and wines. Take a full wallet and empty stomach - the cocktails are equally good, and the only downside to visiting Bar Below is that it can fill or empty within minutes. Not really an issue, unless you have a phobia of mass people movement.

Your reviews for Bar Below

Bar Below is one of the best bars in the village and the city centre to visit on saturday nights with the now established "Saturday Night Sessions" with "In Demand" DJs Mark Johnson and Ste Howarth playing a collection of vocal house music that will get keep you moving all the way through until 5am. I personal also the free shots and the various cocktails they have available. I am a regular at this bar and i recommend it to anyone that has not tried yet it to go down and experience this intimate and enjoyable nigh. SEE YOU THERE

I am a 30 year old single gay man. I have lived in Manchester all my life. Tonight (Good Friday) I went to the Village alone for a few drinks. Just to chill and enjoy myself. On trying to enter Bar Below at 11.30, I was told "We do not allow single men in on thier own". Is this a gay bar??? or is this a bar in the wrong location. Should this not be a bar on Deansgate. Get a grip Bar Below and remember where you are

there has been trouble in the past with middle aged men harassing chickens in there the bouncer was only doing what any good SIA holder would of done assesed the situation at hand and refused entry, perhaps 1 was too drunk for entry?

an amazing little gem, this bar offers something different to those in the village. With a well established cocktail menu and friendly staff I will be spending a few more weekends down these stairs.

An amazing bar that keeps getting better. Think it has been through a slow patch lately and was getting a little boring but went there Saturday and they had a knew night on called 1999* which was amazing. As as for the person who was kicked out for dancing on a chair it serves you right. Go home and dance on your own furniture you freak.

Apparently 1999* is the last Saturday of each month! The poster say they have the Quirk Burglars playing this month. Last one was class!

Probably the nicest cocktails in the village, with a nice mixed trendy crowd I?m gay and kissed my BF in there without any problems, all the staff seem to be gay too!

Small, intimate, never overcrowded. Nice 'rest rooms'

I love the door policy; I've noticed they are not keen to let 'just anyone in' (it is a small bar after all) and yet, with charm, wit and finesse I have always talked my way in past the polite bouncers, so that's an experience in itself.

simply love it never seen the chavs menionted above

Never heard of people been kicked out of a bar for kissing seems like lies to me. I love the place so many different drinks in one bar never seen so many, its great, worth a visit.

Awful bar staff that didn't have a clue what they were doing. No ingredients to make the cocktails we wanted after much discussion between themselves about how to make a vodka martini....
