A late-night Northern Quarter cocktail bar, with its own dedicated 'whisky portfolio'

Perhaps the only bar in the city offering a dedicated ‘whisky portfolio’, this increasingly popular venture sits with the likes of Kosmonaut and Lammars to create a lively little district between Piccadilly and the Northern Quarter itself. Exquisitely presented in a disused textile warehouse, The Whiskey Jar thrives in matching a specialist taste in booze with a welcoming, Tennessee inspired atmosphere that fortunately errs away from the cheesy. If anything, despite a recently expanded downstairs dancefloor, it can be the victim of its own popularity when the weekend comes. Most cocktails trade for £7.50, and if late-night boozing isn’t your thing, you can find two for £9 offers daily before 7pm. Beers on offer also punch above their weight, but naturally, whiskey remains the key attraction, from standard drops such as Johnny Walker to some very choice cuts indeed.

There are plenty of craft ale pubs and cocktail bars in Manchester, all trying to outdo each other with the most impressive menus. This isn't one of them. Instead, The Whiskey Jar - as the name would suggest - is all about whiskey. With over 300 varieties on offer, if you're not a whiskey fan when you get here, you will be when you leave. The venue itself is warm and inviting, just like a good whiskey...
