Discover Manchester’s bohemian Northern Quarter

Manchester, Greater Manchester

The Northern Quarter offers a truly alternative experience with its array of unique independent retailers, retro boutiques, cafés and bars.

Step into a whole new world with Afflecks, an Aladdin’s cave set out over many floors and a maze-like layout housing unique independent traders. This mecca for alternative culture offers an eclectic array of jewellery, second hand and one off clothing, record shops, retro gaming and craft stores. If you love vintage style, Retro Rehab, JUNK and Blue Rinse offer tailored clothes and accessories.

Find 63 Degrees, a family owned restaurant, in the heart of the Northern Quarter. With a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, it makes it a great place to go for dinner.  The restaurant’s French cuisine uses only locally sourced and fresh ingredients.

After dinner make the short walk to one of Manchester’s most popular bars, Kosmonaut. A convivial neighbourhood hangout firmly established in the area with stellar food and drinks including a fine selection of artisan beers and craft cocktails.
