The night time liveliness of the Printworks in Manchester is no secret. For years, students, hens, stags and groups of all ages have been heading there for a guaranteed wild night. However, one thing that has been lacking is somewhere that provides excellently decadent cocktails without pretence or prejudice. Around the World Bar have filled this hole and solved the problems of couples and groups alike by updating their cocktail menu with some absolutely divine gems.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a cocktail making class, in which I got to try some of there new summer menu (and be some I mean nearly all of it!). A delicate balance between strong, sweet, sour and creamy drinks made up the menu. Luckily we were able to sample some of the food that is also served down there, the mini pizza’s and mac and cheese balls were amazing at soaking up the booze and letting me sip on just a few more cocktails.
If you have followed any of my posts your would know that I have a self confessed sweet tooth. I love sweet food, sweet drinks, anything that can be sweet I love it! So the amaretto sour (despite the name) were right up my street. Now, with it being what we Brits like to call summer time, I had to try the (if you like) pina coladas…wow! This was the best one I had ever had, ever! They hit the nail on the head with the mixture of creamy but pineapply but alcoholic but just generally great.
After sampling the menu I would defiantly recommend. Printworks will always be printworks and that may not be to everyone’s tastes but if you happen to be in the area and want something more than satisfactory then sneak downstairs to Bierkellers underground Around The World Bar and let time simply pass you by.
