A classic Mancunian beverage, Vimto is the pride of the city, and turning it into an adult treat is Trafford Centre cocktail bar Oh You Pretty Things. Standing proud in The Orient within the Trafford Centre, Oh You Pretty Things is the perfect luxury addition to the wonderful variety of food and drink available for avid shoppers and luxury-hunters.
The ‘Juicy Vimto‘ provides everything you could want in a refreshing cocktail, with the ‘Manchester Tart‘ cocktail adding to the Mancunian influences of the beautiful bar. So many other creations adorn the bar, in an assortment of colours and toppings including candy floss and twists on classics such as the Bubblegum Daquiri.
Non-drinkers and kids can also join in the fun with mocktails, milkshakes and smoothies, meaning Oh You Pretty Things can most definitely be a family affair. Shop ’til you drop with mates, family or other halves, then put your feet up and grab a cocktail.
Of course, the menu is full of fun, but it’s not without its luxury elements. The look of the bar, covered in flowers and integrated into the shopping centre’s marble columns and reflective archways, is positively art deco, adding that little bit of class to an already lovely bolt hole. The decor flows perfectly into the famous cloudy ceiling of the Orient food court, adding to the dreamlike ambience that engulfs it.
Oh You Pretty Things also encourages creativity with its ‘Canvas n Cocktails‘ painting events, run by artists who love to pass on their wisdom to guests, with a different aim each month. Following the passing of the icon Tina Turner, the last event captured her striking looks and powerful personality, with next month’s lined up to be another success, painting ‘The Flower Girl‘.
Canvas n Cocktails usually takes place on a Thursday, and you can treat yourself to bottomless Prosecco or bottomless cocktails during the event – upgrade your ticket and choose your preferred drinks add-ons for a truly delightful time, taking away your very own piece of art to remember the night by.
You can keep an eye on the Canvas n Cocktails events on the Oh You Pretty Things social media, and you can find the bar at The Orient, Trafford Centre, Trafford Park, Stretford, Manchester, M17 8EH.
