Fancy a girly day out? Or simply feel like immersing yourself in the happy colour that is pink? We’ve got you. From wonderfully Instagrammable bars and restaurants to hidden pink-hued spots that are tucked away in plain sight, check out our guide to the prettiest pink places in Manchester.
1. 202 Kitchen
The newest, Instagrammable spot in town – 202 Kitchen is a pink paradise, with a number of photo opps throughout the venue. The pretty in pink bar makes for a perfect afternoon with a cocktail, and their food is just as good – providing the comfort food sure to fulfil your cravings in a social media-inspired ‘trapbox’. New address TBC.
Archie’s newest venue is a pink haven, with every single inch of the burger joint covered in the warm hue. And the decor is incredibly fun, too, with inflatable flamingos, neon signs, and even a ball pit to play in. The pink theme runs throughout all of Archie’s venues, too, so no matter which restaurant you pop to, you’re sure to be treated with an Instagrammable sight. Archie’s, 6 & 7, Gateway House, Piccadilly, M1 2GH.
3. Glass House/Nice Things
Manchester isn’t short of seriously gorgeous plant shops, and Glass House is by far one of the prettiest thanks to its stunning pink interior. The place is absolutely packed full of tropical style plants and greenery – but be warned, you’ll probably be leaving with lighter pockets as a result. Glass House, 74 Princess St, M1 6JD | Nice Things, Oldham Street, M1 1JQ.
4. Sunset by Australasia
Decked out with beautiful art deco-style furnishings, Sunset by Australasia is every cocktail seekers dream. Enter into their outdoor terrace, and you’ll be greeted with cosy decor finished off with beautiful pink flowers, blankets, neon lights and white picket fencing – and that’s all before you step inside the venue. Inside, you’ll find gorgeous pastel pink seating, with gold trimmings, a pink bar and marble tables. Sunset by Australasia, 1 The Avenue, M3 3AP.
Menagerie has long been one of the prettiest venues in Manchester, with every corner looking picture perfect. From their ball-pool bathtub framed by a bright pink neon sign, to the hottest table in the venue which is placed within a giant birdcage – there’s a lot to see. The majority of the decor is a candy pink shade, with a private dining room complete with pink furniture and sheer curtains. Menagerie, One New Bailey, New Bailey St, Salford, M3 5JL.
Taking oriental decor and turning it pink, Tattu is complete with a frequently photographed cherry blossom tree – standing tall in all of its pink glory. The whole venue is uplit with bright pink tones, with ever-luxurious finishings everywhere you turn. If you’re a fan of Asian food, we highly recommend it. Tattu, 3 Hardman Square, Gartside St, M3 3EB.
7. Copper and Blossom
Manchester’s girliest sleepover spot Copper and Blossom is a floral, pink paradise – perfect for a weekend in the city enjoying all that Manchester has to offer. From its pink velvet living room to its wisteria-laden sleeping area (not to mention the private bar), your Instagram is sure to be poppin’ after a stay here. Copper and Blossom, 46 Oldham Rd, Great Ancoats St, Ancoats, M4 5EE.
Adding a little colour to The Rock in Bury, Drip is beautiful both inside and out. Head to the entrance and you’ll be greeted with cascading pink flowers, before stepping inside to find soft-toned pink velvet seating and hanging plants. The restaurant serves tasty cocktails and a menu filled with naughty favourites, including Neapolitan pizza, burgers, steaks and fried chicken. Drip, 5, THE ROCK, Bury, BL9 0JS.
9. Fletcher Moss Botanical Gardens
Fletcher Moss is a little piece of nature in an otherwise concrete jungle, filled with beautiful plants, trees and flowers. But the most showstopping, of course, is the cherry blossom trees – which loom over the gorgeous community park. In spring and summer, the trees stand in full bloom, perfect for sitting under while pretending you’ve escaped to Japan. Fletcher Moss, 18 Stenner Ln, Didsbury, M20 2RQ.
10. Cocoa Cabana
Cocoa Cabana is Ancoats’ resident chocolatiers, and inside their lovely cafe, it’s pretty in pink. Enjoy lovely cocktails, cakes and handcrafted chocolates, say hello to the owner’s pup, and relax in the baby pink surrounds on comfortable, velvet furniture that’ll persuade you to stay for hours. Cocoa Cabana, 7 Murray St, Ancoats, M4 6HS.
You can’t get any pinker than YES’s Pink Room – an airy, vibrant space where gigs are frequently held. The ambience is incredible in here, with every single nook and cranny painted bright pink, and hot pink lighting accompanying the tones of the room. Next time they have an event on, why not immerse yourself in this wonderful room (which has fantastic acoustics!). YES, 38 Charles St, M1 7DB.
