Still planning your April reunion?
We’ve got your back. While many of Manchester’s popular bars and restaurants are pretty booked up already, we’ve done the hard work for you and found the best spots in town with alfresco reservations available this April. Without further ado…
1. Wolf at the Door
Returning with £1 tacos and bao buns, Northern Quarter’s Wolf at the Door will be operating on a walk-in basis from April 12th, meaning if you don’t have a reservation for anywhere already – you don’t need to worry. Just rock up on the day, and the team will do their best to accommodate. Wolf at the Door, 30-32 Thomas St, M4 1ER.
2. Almost Famous
Almost Famous’ beloved burgers are back, and the good news is, you don’t need a reservation to enjoy them. Popping up on Edge Street, Almost Famous will host an outdoor terrace this summer, where you can simply turn up and be seated by one of their friendly team members. Almost Famous, 100-102 High St, M4 1HP.
3. Rudy’s Ancoats
While Rudy’s has certainly been a popular option for those looking to head straight back to bars and restaurants this April, there are still a few reservation slots left throughout the month. Tables of just two don’t need to book, but parties any bigger should snap up a slot before they’re gone. Rudy’s, 9 Cotton St, Ancoats, M4 5BF.
Bookings for Manchester’s wonderful Portuguese tapas restaurant – the sister site to El Gato Negro – are now open, and they’ve done a terrific job with their outdoor terrace. Cornered off with a lovely white picket fence, guests can be transported to the Mediterranian with their fantastic Portuguese-inspired menu. Book now. Canto, Cutting Room Square, Blossom St, Ancoats, M4 5DH.
Bookings are now open for Hatch, however, if you haven’t secured a table yet – fear not. Hatch will be holding a number of their tables for walk-ins, too, meaning you can still head over for a spontaneous pint and a bit of grub on a Friday afternoon. If you’d rather book, head on over to their website here. Hatch, 103 Oxford Rd, M1 7ED.
6. The Ivy Spinningfields
Launching a brand new outdoor terrace for the spring and summer months, The Ivy has a limited number of tables available during April, where you can enjoy a select menu of Brasserie dishes in the Manchester sun. Be quick though, as the tables are booking out fast. Book here. The Ivy, The Pavilion, Byrom St, M3 3HG.
7. Crazy Pedros
Crazy Pedro’s is back with a bang this month, with the relaunch of their popular bottomless brunch event. Guests can book a table to enjoy bottomless slices, margs, beers and more – with bookings for both Bridge Street and the Northern Quarter venue open now. Book here. Crazy Pedros, Short St, M4 1AA | 55-57 Bridge St, M3 3BQ.
8. Seven Bro7hers
While Seven Bro7hers is definitely set to be busy this April, there’s still a number of tables left on their booking system. The bar will be serving their beloved Salford-made brews, as well as a classic menu of pub grub, including burgers, kebabs and sandwiches. Book here before they’re all gone. Seven Bro7hers, 39 Blossom St, Ancoats, M4 5AF.
9. Revolucion de Cuba
Adapting to provide a fun, outdoor experience for customers, Revolucion de Cuba is hosting a pop-up ‘Daiq Shack’ this summer, which will be parked up on Great Northern Square opposite their Peter Street bar. No bookings are required, so you can simply turn up, grab a seat and enjoy cocktail after cocktail.
10. Great Northern Beach Club
New in town, the Great Northern Beach Club is set to open on Monday at Great Northern Square, and there’s still plenty of bookings left to take advantage of. The newly launched concept has been created by the team behind the karaoke Christmas huts by Bar Hutte, and it’s set to bring Balearic vibes to Manchester with frozen cocktails, beers, chilled music and private beach huts. Book here.
