With this perfect sunshine and near-stifling heat, it’s difficult to concentrate on anything apart from ice-creams and slush puppies. At times like these, no-one is bothered about work – it’s all about looking longingly out of the windows, sunbathing in your lunch-break, and finding ways to either get out of the office (“erm, I could deliver that by hand…”) or, if you don’t have the luxury of an air-conditioned office, standing next to the refrigerator as much as possible.
And, of course, the other thing that’s on your mind is also where to head to for a post-work pint in the sunshine. Whilst it seems like the weather has been like this for ages, honestly, this isn’t Manchester weather – so it’s important you make the most of it, and have fun whilst it lasts!
When the sun shines in Manchester, there’s nowhere better to head than Castlefield, for it’s wide array of outdoor seating, the beautiful calming canal-side location, and the vibrant atmosphere – particularly when all the bars are rammed with happy Mancunians.
Our favourite bar in Castlefield needs no introduction - Barca has been one of the top, top places to sit and quaff for years. We love it, you love it, and CityCard members love that they get 25% off food and drink! They have a great range of beers, brilliant food, and it’s a fantastic place to sit and enjoy our city.
