Ease into the famous northern nightlife with a relaxed meal at Browns on York Street. Formerly the Athenaeum pub, the building was originally an opulent banking hall. Move into the bar – seen as one of the best places to drink in Manchester – for some cocktails and enjoy the striking surroundings.

Stick with the cocktails at All Bar One on King Street, then move out of town to O'Neill's or The Woodstock Arms in the chic suburb of Didsbury. Will you spot one of Manchester's famous footballers?

Or fix the family's rumbling tummies with a great meal at Harvester Lowry in Salford Quays, where you can enjoy a tasty grill before (or after) hitting the shops.
