Everyone deserves to have their hair dropped every now and then, and mothers are no exception. While they spend their days taking care of everyone else, the evenings are their time to shine. Yes, most of them spend crawling into bed before nine, but on the rare occasions the girls can meet, fun is definitely the order of the day.
Fortunately, there are plenty of great venues in Manchester, so whether it’s cocktails and candlelight or bingo and belly laughs, there is something for everyone. Here we have put together a list of the four best locations for a great mothers evening.
When the kids are in bed, it’s time to do yourself good, but most of us don’t have the energy for anything that’s too tough. If you’re looking for something more relaxed with a classic yet cozy vibe, Lock 91 is the place for you.
On summer evenings there is a terrace on the canal that you can use, and when the days come there is a warm and inviting interior to retreat into. Located on three floors of a Victorian lock keeper’s cottage, the surroundings are cool and quirky, and the cocktails are divine.
Let’s face it – staying up past 10 p.m. is sometimes hard enough, especially when you know you’ll get up at six. If you want a fun evening that doesn’t stretch too far into the night, Buzz Bingo is another venue you might want to try out.
It has the UK’s largest bingo jackpot and prizes of up to £ 50,000 are up for grabs, and it’s not just bingo available. There are also slots, casino games, and more. You can even join the fun from home thanks to an online site that features popular titles such as Fluffy favoriteswhich is full of cute graphics and bonuses to make this a really fun and unique slot machine.
The Oast House
If you want to go out but prefer something a little more low-key than cocktails, you can suggest The Oast House as a meeting point. Located in Manchester’s stylish Spinningfields district, this Kentish style pub and restaurant offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
At the same time a bar and a restaurant, it used to house – you guessed it – an oast house. It serves a menu of deli boards, rotisseries, and more, is open daily from noon to midnight, and prides itself on serving some of the best ales and drinks in the world.
Sugar cane and grain
We think too Sugar cane and grain is a great place to meet up with girlfriends. This Manchester-based whisper pub is full of flair and has a vintage elegance that is second to none. Everything from retro-style glassware to old-world style cocktails has been carefully considered down to the smallest detail.
This is the perfect place to get lost for an evening. When you create a retro world full of glamor and elegance, you can forget the clutter and mundane of everyday life for the night. Talk, laugh and escape reality with your loved ones.
