A cosy, CAMRA-approved local that welcomes dogs and has its own book exchange. The Sunday roast is excellent.
Just a stone’s throw from the famous ‘Four Banks’ of Chorlton, Electrik has the vibe of a place John Peel might have built just to listen to records in. It’s a 1970s tinged bar that serves up some stonking real ale (including their own award-winning collaborations with local brewer Happy Valley), and good wholesome food, with arguably the best Sunday Roast in Chorlton.
It’s all been put together by Justin Crawford and Luke Cowdrey, the people behind the legendary Manchester Electric Chair parties and the owners of Didsbury’s Volta bar.
With a terrace out front and a secret garden around the back, you can follow the sun when it’s out, or cosy up inside with a good read from the book exchange they curate inside. A thoroughly modern bar that doesn’t shy away from home comforts, Electrik is welcoming to party-goers, fine diners, children and even dogs. It’s an all-inclusive emporium that prides itself on locally sourced goods with a global outlook on music, food and beer. One of Manchester’s game-changing new locals.
