Coffee and Thyme – Gili Air

Coffee and Thyme – Gili Air

As soon as you step off the boat to Gili Air you are greeted by crowds of fellow travellers, tourists and locals alike, ready to board their boats or to start to explore the serene island. Once you pass through the crowds, less than a […]

Around the World Bar Summer Cocktail Launch

Around the World Bar Summer Cocktail Launch

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 […]

El Capo

El Capo

El Capo is a Mexican restaurant and bar that has become a staple part of Tariff Street in Manchester’s infamous Northern Quarter. Albeit, the bar at weekends is one of the places to be but what is even better than the prospect of a busy tequila […]

Another Heart To Feed

Another Heart To Feed

Amazing lighting, check. Beautiful food, check. Aesthetically pleasing latte art on your oh so hipster matcha latte, check. Another heart to feed ticks all my boxes and more but was it really everything I had hoped for and more?! Urm…. yes! The strikingly colourful exterior renders […]

Oké Poké Launch

In short, Poke (pronounced poke-eh) is a beautiful combination of raw cubed fish and vegetables. To make it even simpler, think of deconstructed sushi… in a bowl. This aesthetically pleasing taste of Hawaii has finally come to Manchester and I was lucky enough to attend the […]

Cafe at the Museum

Cafe at the Museum

One thing I have found since living back home after university and working in Manchester city centre is that there is a heck of a lot of restaurants about. We have an eating out culture and a vast choice throughout the city and suburbs. Unfortunately, […]

Gorilla

Gorilla

Most people may know Gorilla as a night time venue for music and a generally good place to go for a lively drink. However, after finding out it was owned by the same company as Trof (a bar/restaurant in the northern quarter which I loved […]

Rustik

Rustik

Disclosure before I start this review – I have classed this as Manchester but Rustik is actually a cafe style restaurant in Didsbury, which is just in south Manchester. I stumbled across this place a few months ago when I stopped for a coffee but […]
