Cord, along with now sister site Simple Bar & Kitchen, can live up to it’s title of “Northern Quarter original” when it comes to the ever changing NQ bar scene, opening as it did in it’s original guise way back in 2001. There have been many changes since that time, and the most recent looks set to put Cord firmly back in its rightful place – at the top of any Northern Quarter visitor’s ‘to-do’ list.

New owners The House of Adventure Group have set about the place since they were handed the keys in the summer and the venue is now transformed, both upstairs at ground level and even more so downstairs in the basement. The boutique cocktail bar offers a laid back atmosphere with plenty going on. Tall tables erected from beer barrels, walls filled with wooden planks and a Bose audio system makes Cord Bar the ideal venue for both relaxed evening hangouts and weekend partying.

As a drinking den, Cord ticks all the boxes. Dimly lit, excellent selection of bottled beers, back bar spirits and a mouth watering cocktail menu. The focus may be on drinking but if you get peckish there’s a fantastic nibbles menu provided by sister venue Simple Bar & Kitchen, perfect for an after work munch.
