Forever dreaming of the Mediterranean? Let us introduce you to Capri Beach Club. Located in Exchange Square, this beach-inspired bar is complete with cabanas, lounge chairs, and real sand. From feel-good tunes to an extensive cocktail menu, this is the ultimate spot for those sun-filled days in the city. I mean, who needs Ocean Beach when you have this Manny-terranean gem? 

Sports Events In the Best Beer Gardens 

From the Euros to the Olympics, this summer is certainly a good one for sports enthusiasts. As a city filled with sports bars and beer gardens, we can’t think of a better place to support your favourite teams. Oast House, one of Manchester’s biggest and most popular beer terraces, is showing the England matches on its huge outside screen. For non-England games, matches will be shown inside on the small screen, some with and some without sound, depending on the game, day and time. The Lawn Club, another popular venue, is also bringing the Euros to Manchester with their huge 160″ screen. Teaming up with Lucozade, this Spinningfields bar will be serving ice-cold pints and pitchers throughout every game in the tournament.
