I thought Manchester city center was meant to be nice thanks to the Irish Renovation Association's sterling work in the 80s and 90s?

by the way i really miss a good british style kebab, so if anyone gets a kebab can you please look at the salad in there and tell me what it is cause i've forgot. i know there's like purple stuff and onion and lettuce i think idk. also a recipe for that bangin chili sauce you get on them.

isnt it pretty much just shredded lettuce, beetroot, onions, maybe a carrot or two with one of those green chillis and some coleslaw? just make sure to leave the salad out in the warm sun for at least a day before serving to get the real authentic kebab shop taste.

It's been what, 5+ years being constructed? There's still sections of it boarded up inside and it still looks like a holding cell for human beings in some weird cheap sci-fi film.

2 years or so ago i was trying to find the way out and i walked for ages along a corridor to come to a dead end featuring nothing but a tesco express. is it being built ironically?

yeah they pretty much expect you to drop whatever you are doing or whatever customer you are with to be their personal butler while they make their loving minds up and god help you if you dont have the right shade of cushion you basically ruin their life

you should go to the stonegate area for drinking, theres a really good little underground live music bar/club there called satano's next to kennedy's. pivnis is amazing for beer.

in the summer you wont move for tourists but the shops are nice and quirky, the surroundings are gorgeous and the designer outlet is great for shopping. also theres a ton of great restaurants, go to ambiente for the best tapas outside of spain and luccias is a great italian place (also stonegate area) that turns into a decent club at night.

yeah the problem there is you have to always queue to get in and its tiny as gently caress so you can be queueing for a loooong time

i dont like the idea of queuing just for what is essentially a pub thats not really any better than all the others around it but its one of those places where people think it must be good because look at that queue

e: the habit is good too and the duchess sometimes has some decent live bands a lot of the time these are throwbacks from the 90's + 00's i saw toploader there for a fiver for instance. the stone roses is the bar with the most character in york just dont go there on a student night.

There's a newish joint called Nevermore or something, used to be where Fibbers was years ago. Super dark inside and is more club than pub but the cocktails are so good and they serve fresh pizza... A winner in my book.
