Dating in Manchester

As one of the most vibrant cities in the UK, Manchester has plenty of options to keep you busy on your dates. Here are our top picks for date ideas:

  • The Green Quarter is a great lesser-known part of Manchester if you want to impress your date with your knowledge of the coolest spots in the city. If you’re a gin fiend, take them to Manchester Three Rivers for an award-winning tour and tasting.
  • If you’re both sports lovers, pay a visit to the Etihad Stadium for a unique behind-the-scenes look at what it is to play for one of the country’s biggest clubs. Dating in Manchester doesn’t get much better for football fans.
  • Singles in Manchester who want to learn something new on a date can head to the Manchester Museum. Once you’ve had your fill of browsing, sit down over a romantic coffee at the museum cafe.
  • The Northern Quarter is one of the hotspots for singles looking for bars in Manchester. Check out Lost in Tokyo, where you can immerse yourself in another world with your date.
  • The Gay Village, situated around Canal Street, is perfect for gay Manchester dating. Go toTribeca, a New-York inspired bar which hosts an array of events, or Oscars, which often has live entertainment and gets pretty raucous on big nights!
