THE BLUE PIG 300 X 300

No longer a newbie in the ever-evolving Northern Quarter bar scene The Blue Pig has honed it’s offering and has now firmly established itself as a go to drinking and dining spot. Of course coming from the same stable as its near neighbour Odd Bar, The Blue Pig could hardly be described as your average bar but is indeed ‘a curious drinking den‘!

Head up the High Street from the Arndale end of the Northern Quarter and you’ll find The Blue Pig and with it carefully crafted cocktails, quality food, and some of Manchester’s best DJs in its deliciously dark atmosphere, where wrought iron chandeliers and dark wood sit alongside original 1930s Parisian doors, a sweeping bar and of course a blue pig wondering around on the ceiling which also features hand-drawn graphics from Manchester street artists.

The Blue Pig bar offers a fine spirit selection with a bar crammed full of tipples from around the globe; from single malt whiskies to fancy tequilas, small batch gins to family-owned liqueurs, fine aged rums and flavour-filled vodkas, sippers, snifters, aperitifs, digestifs and all manner of curios to drink in between. Carefully crafted cocktails, continental draft and bottled beers are also on offer plus an excellent ever changing selection of locally sourced real ales. Their superb selection of fine wines has also received the same careful attention, drawing inspiration from both the old world and the new.

As you can see, if you click through, The Blue Pig food menu features burgers and small platesmains, twisted classics & more, including a fine selection of veggie options for those so inclined, and much more. They also have a fantastic lunch offer where you can choose from such delights as a Maple Smoked Bacon Burger, 8 Hour Beavertown Ale Braised Pulled Pork Ciabatta (which is even more of a mouthful than its name!) and much more, for just £5, which includes fries too!

When it comes to entertainment The Blue Pig is filled with music from Manchester’s finest DJs and special live guests all of which is designed to keep the discerning Northern Quarter crowd happy late into the night, with DJ residencies including Will Graney & Dan Deighan with their Indie Rock’n’Roll night on a Friday and the fantastic PB&J DJ collective (Saturdays), not to mention the ever popular Oink Punk Bingo on Wednesdays which features classic tunes, tequila and rounds of bingo and air guitar and the new PIG-turehouse classic movie screenings every other Tuesday!
