Cloud 23, Manchester - A Bar With A View!



Looking for somewhere unique to go in Manchester? Whether you fancy taking your mum for afternoon tea, cocktails with the girls or a coffee after a long day shopping, Cloud 23 caters for everything. (Excuse the main photo - I didn't take enough of the bar itself!) Located at the top of the Hilton Hotel, Deansgate,  it sets itself apart from any other bar/lounge as the view is incredible! Read on to find out more...

I had been wanting to go to this bar for ages and since my boyfriend was coming up to visit I thought it would be a perfect end to a day in Manchester and really show him everything there is to see in the city. Of course I went straight to the cocktail menu where there was so much choice! I had the 'Knickerbocker Special'... It was yummy (but so alcoholic!). They are priced from 7.50 to 15.00 so you don't have to spend a fortune. 

There were other guests enjoying afternoon tea which looked incredible. I hope I can find time to take my mum or one of my girlfriends here for this before I head back to uni, as afternoon tea is always so adorable! (And probably more appreciated by the females).

As you can imagine this is quite a classy place and the dress code is smart casual. However there were more families there in the afternoon than I expected, so don't feel put off by its seemingly pretentious appearance. Unless you are visiting after 6pm there is no need for a reservation, but if you are then make sure to book online beforehand. And if you're thinking of coming on a Friday/Saturday night then book a few weeks in advance as the weekends are really busy. 


The feature that seems to draw everyone in is the view. From the bar you can see every corner of Manchester from the Etihad Stadium to Old Trafford to the city centre and even the Trafford Centre. And you can see for miles and miles outside of the city!
































I really enjoyed our visit to Cloud 23 and would really recommend you make a stop if you are in Manchester. Even if it's just for a quick coffee!

Have you been to the bar? Are there any other unique bars in Manchester you would encourage we to go and see? Or maybe you are thinking of visiting Manchester, drop us a comment and let us know! :)
