About The Liquor Store
“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!”
Thank you for having us for our staff do -- everyone had a great time :)
Beth is amazing. She was friendly, welcoming and excellent at her job.
Hi, Thanks for looking after our team of around 40 persons on 20th Dec! We arrived at The Liquor Store after our team Christmas meal. We put a tab behind the bar and requested this was managed for spend on specific drinks, this was managed very well by the team. The team were very friendly and we had a great night. Great music too! Thank you!
Great atmosphere here. Fab music and friendly staff.
Excellent location and venue that suited our party's needs and everyone had a great time.....thanks
Hi Jamie Glad your party made it down, please feel free to contact me directly if you need to use us again. Kind regards Beth
The cocktail masterclass by Danny was absolutely brilliant. A really good teacher, very patient with the 10 of us and good fun! Made my 50th celebration memorable. Would highly recommend.. Cheers!
We visited the Liquor Store recently as a group of 10 girls for an early 50th birthday night out. Wow, this was amazing, so much fun making and drinking the cocktails 🍷🍹🍾 We had prosecco on arrival, pornstar martini’s, bramble cocktail’s and then a shot before heading off for a meal. Dan our host was fantastic as was all the staff. The atmosphere was very relaxed and really made the start of our night. Would definitely recommend this cocktail masterclass and will be returning before Christmas. Thanks again The Liquor Store.
This is one of our favourites bars in Manchester. Fantastic bar staff, music and all round atmosphere. Would highly recommend !
Hi Clare Thanks for your review, I'm glad you had a great night! We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues again :) Kindest regards Beth
Your booking staff are really professional and helpful. The guys working in the bar were professional, friendly, fun and really knew their drinks and blends. My party of 20 adults loved the 2 hours we stayed and that good that we spent all the money we had agreed to behind the bar :-)
Hi Simon Thanks for your review! I'm glad you all enjoyed yourselves, I hope the gig was just as good :) Kindest regards Beth
Staff friendly. Allowed us to use our deposit exactly how we wanted to and music was really good! In there! Would like to give a special thanks to Beth who was out working the tables last night, you were very attentive and approachable. You are a true asset to the team. Thanks for hosting us last night.
Hi Richard Thanks for your review, it was a pleasure to have you in! I look forward to seeing you again soon - get in touch with us in advance next time you're looking to come down :) Kindest regards Beth
We were lucky enough to spend the afternoon/evening at the Liquor store last week. We had pre booked a cocktail making class which was hosted by Mason. All 6 of us had a brilliant afternoon, it’s a great bar with great music and bar staff who create a relaxed fun atmosphere. We would highly recommend the cocktail making. Mason showed us how to make fab cocktails! We’ll definitely be back to this perfect hidden gem it’s Manchester at its absolute best!
Hi Shioban, Glad you enjoyed yourselves, thanks for the lovely review! Kindest regards Beth x
We visited The Liquor Store as part of a group. They couldn't have been more helpful! We had our own area and the staff were really friendly and chatty. We took advantage of the "double your tab" offer, even though I was very pleasantly surprised at the cost of the drinks. The cocktails were amazing!!! Very well made and delicious. When I'm back in Manchester I'll definitely be back. Thanks so much.
Had a great time and the Bartenders were great!
I booked a little party of 6 at The Liquor Store. The booking was very easy and received confirmation emails. As soon as we arrived we were enthusiastically welcomed and shown to our table. The cocktails and drinks were superb. The staff fantastic. We had a amazing night and we will be going again. I seriously would recommend this place to everyone. Thanks.
Chester and the team were excellent, the offers were brilliant and we had an amazing night out!
Brilliant afternoon in here, Doug is a top bloke! Will 100% return.
Fun bar with a laid back atmosphere and friendly staff. Great happy hour deals and an even better offer of doubling any money you put down as a bar tab when you make a reservation in advance.
We were so pleased with the cocktail masterclass! It helped the group to unwind after a long day of meetings. The host was great and managed such a large group so well. Thanks to all of you for a great evening!
Great friendly atmosphere. We did the double your money deal - superb value!!
Been here many times and it's always great service and the staff are amazing!!
Fantastic night!! Great venue and looked after by an amazing team...
Great night, great service. Only possible improvement I can think of would be to hand out vouchers for a tab instead of everyone having to keep track of their own spend.
If you are going to offer customers a doubled bar tab you should be very clear about how the promotion is redeemed. I spoke to you in an email feed and over the phone about a party of at least 20 and stated I wanted to put £400 behind your bar for the group with the intention of it being doubled. Not once was it made apparent that you needed the money up front. When speaking to your manager on the day, he was argumentative and dismissive even though I evidenced all of the above. The basis of his arguement when he could string a sentence together was that we had just booked a table and wanted to put a £400 tab in only. Why on earth would I NOT want to double our tab? Your manager put a really bad vibe out. You lied about our telephone conversation about the booking when the manager rang the owner. I had this booked since June 4th, did you not also consider calling me to ask if I could pay the bar tab in advance as it was getting closer to the date? As I said on the night, I'll be speaking to trading standards. Firstly about your hazy and unclear wording on the offer. that it seems to favour other parties (as my wife and sister in law paid on the day only 6 months ago). Your manager being snarky and evasive. And lastly that you will not honour a conversation with a paying customer where I stated I wanted the doubled tab and that it was not made clear until the day that you required this money up front.
Hi Ash Firstly i am very sorry that you felt that the manager was rude on the evening, i will look into this and take further action, thank you for bringing it to my attention. In regards to the 'Double your bar tab' offer. You at no point enquired about the offer or asked if you could pay money when you arrived and it would be doubled. The offer is subject to availability and deposits need to be paid at least 24 hours in advance. If you had wanted to take up this offer we more than likely could have arranged this for you but you need to book in for the offer. I am sorry that this was missed. I am more than happy to book you in again with the offer and hopefully we can improve your experience of The Liquor Store. Let me know if i can help at all by emailing me at [email protected] thanks Doug
Great venue , staff couldn’t do enough and range of beers and spirits top class . Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves
Excellent service, I would highly recommend them.
