Living Room review
Located on a busy stretch of Deansgate, The Living Room was launched to much acclaim in 2001 and has been one of our favourite bars ever since. The venue is deceptively large, with a small and inconspicuous frontage that's home to three floors and three separate brands. On the ground floor is the lengthy bar area, home to a wide selection of spirits and some great cocktails - one of our favourites is the Silver Mercedes (Sorbet, Vodka, Champagne) - served by attentive and amusing staff that are far from being stiff.
Upstairs is a 50 seater restaurant that serves a good selection of modern English foods that will set you back around ?50 for a meal for two. The quality is well above most modern restaurants with a wide range of dishes, good 'hands off' service and a relaxing atmosphere. Hat's off to the Living Room for their wine list, as it's packed with affordable and wonderful bottles.
Up the stairs once more is The Study, a very small (30 cap.) members only area of the Living Room that has a hint of colonial India in its decor - think wooden shutters, bit fans and lights down low. Access to this is for gold card owners only, so it's well worth becoming a member although that's not as easy as it should be.
On a Friday or Saturday night the Living Room operates a selective door policy, and if you can make your way inside you'll often be greeted by a mixture of local entrepreneurs, footballers and beautiful women. Not necessarily a bad thing, as the piano player and personable bar staff make sure the atmosphere isn't too staid.
Previously the area around the bar was populated by bog standard bars and pubs but the popularity of the venue has brought some much needed class - the strikingly similar Label bar is next door, whilst around the corner Prohibition (owned by the same company behind the Living Room) and Revolution provide the cocktails. Hats off to Living Ventures for their success.

to my knowledge it is the usual 18 & over policy..drinks are a little bit more expensive but worth it; (wine around ?6.50) don't let that put you off though..i'd advise you to give it a whirl and if it isn't to your liking there are many other fab bars within the city centre..win/win situation
