Sandbar, Manchester

Sprawling bar with exceptional beers and good food

Sandbar is the bar that keeps on giving. Just when you think you’ve found your preferred spot in the bar, next to the fire or next to the spacious smokers' terrace, you’ll turn a corner and find more pews and pals in another section of the bar.

Locally roasted coffee is served with a Tunnock’s chocolate bar as a matter of course, while beers (Belgian and regional) and Scotch whiskies are a strength. Eat stone-baked pizza and get involved with one of the many friendly comedy, spoken word and improv nights at this bar with a heart.

One of my favourite bars within the Oxford road area. Sandbar offers a ridiculously large amount of ales on draft, all reasonable priced too, which is a nice change for a near city centre venue. Bar staff know what they are talking about when it comes to taste pallet and would happily talk you through the process, if that’s your kind of thing.

With Sandbar being so close to MMU and Uni of Manchester, as you may expect the bar has a large student clientele, as well as a regular academic clientele - which gives a good mixture of conversation to overhear.
