About Liquor Store First Street

“The Liquor Store” in the heart of the city centre has its Mancunian roots coursing through its veins. We opened the doors in November 2012 on the corner of Blackfriars Street and The Parsonage, situated just off Deansgate, underneath the Maybrook House building. Bare brickwork, vintage Los Angeles Liquor Store signage and a bar crammed with a collection of the most desirable liquors from around the globe are just some of the features waiting to greet as you enter.

Amongst the subtle nods towards American bar culture, the standout theme is the city of Manchester.One whole wall is dedicated to our city’s most loved exports with everyone from Liam & Noel, Ian Brown and Morrissey to Nobby Stiles, Davy Jones, The Bee Gees and even Les Dawson watching you as you drink. Passionate service from one of the city’s best bar teams delivers a whole host of cocktail creations such as “St Hendrick’s Elderly Rose”, “Oasis” and the famous “Dead Man Walking!”

Quirky, original, creative but inherently stylish… just like the city itself. The bar ambience is transformed at 5pm with the help of its indie, rock’n’roll, classic rock and pop soundtrack blend. featuring more than a fair share of Mancunian favourites.

The Liquor Store’s intimate atmosphere and late opening hours, seven days a week showcase the true Manchester party spirit and deals for all hospitality industry workers, the Liquor Store is storming Manchester. The bar has recently won “best city centre bar” in the Eat, drink, sleep awards!

Me and 8 friends came to the Liquor Store for a cocktail master class. Danny was absolutely amazing with us, made us feel at ease and let us do things at our own pace (even when we were late because we went to the wrong place!!) His customer service was phenomenal and if we ever do any more cocktail classes they’ll have a lot to live up to after this one. Thankyou for a fantastic evening!

Hated It! But maybe not, because I'm not Alisha, so I didn't go. Alisha just likes to use my email address to sign up for things, which I find particularly annoying, especially when those sites don't do any kind of email verification.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. I have had meals and drinks on several occasions at First Street, always a good night out. I'll be back again soon, no doubt.

The cocktails were absolutely delicious and the kopparberg and flower headband making stalls outside were a lovely touch. The food was lovely too and I would definitely return because of that as well as the good value for money. Unfortunately, I did find the 2 male bar staff behind the bar fairly rude and they definitely need to work on their people skills. The girls were lovely. One of them came across as very miserable, then 10 minutes later seemed to cheer up as he began play fighting behind the bar putting ice down his colleagues top. I didn't mind that I thought fair enough have fun but it was a bit awkward as the bar was quite busy and everyone was left waiting for them to finish pratting about before serving us. As I sat down with my group I commented on how rude the bar staff was to which my friend replied 'God you're the third person who's come back and said that!'. I also overheard the barman being quite passive aggressive towards another man waiting to be served who turned to me and said 'I've never known anything like it'. Having shots behind the bar is fair enough but the way they knocked them back then turned to face the customers as if to say look at me the big man having shots in work was cringeworthy. Extremely bad attitudes and they need to remember they are in the workplace.

Excellent service from start to finish, we booked a large table of 13 and were well looked after. The offer of matching your bar tab is amazing, highly recommended. Thank you to all the staff!!!

We attempted to submit vouchers for payment of draught beer in line with discount offer, however we were told the barrel was being changed - This went on for half an hour, and as a result all vouchers weren't spent.

We came to Liquor Store for a cocktail Master Class as part of my Hen Party. There were 30 of us in total and we had a fantastic evening! Danny, who hosted the session was brilliant and made the night really fun! Would definitely recommend the class to anyone! :) We can't thank you enough!

The food was good, especially considering how cheap it is. However, I think a some chilli, or something very spicy, maybe have somehow found it's way into my burger, as one bite nearly blew my mouth off! Even though our party had 24 people, the food was still served quickly, and everyone's came at the same time which meant people weren't waiting for others - very good effort given the size of our party. The staff were very friendly and came around regularly asking if anyone needed drinks. On the whole very well looked after. Would definitely recommend to friends/family, and will be visiting again myself.

Excellent service. Booked a table of 12 at just gone past 11.30 am for 12. Sent all orders through at 11.45. Got there at 12 and was eating by 12.20. All finished including a couple of drinks by 12.45 which is the ideal on a working lunch. Service was excellent. Everyone is very tentative. Value for money is superb. £5 lunch with also drink offers.

Food is ok, I guess against you expect looking at the menu. The service however was very very good! The manager changed our tables for us (12) without question and was very attentive and the barman/waiter went above and beyond the call of duty and deserves congratulating.
