Walrus is a really cool bar in the Northern Quarter Manchester. It's not like your average drinking hole where you can end up being served God knows what after queuing for 15 minutes. The bartenders put effort in to their cocktail making and are all incredibly talented. 

During the daytime (and weekday evenings) you can try the delicious food. This is something out of the ordinary and it's sometimes difficult to get enough of it! Lunchtime offers a £5 Bento on weekdays between 12noon - 5pm. It's the perfect lunch! A genuinly tasty meal that will fill you up until dinnertime, no pointless snacking needed!  :)

On to the cocktails. As I previously mentioned the cocktails are stunning. If you come in on a non busy night (i.e. anything but a Friday or Saturday) the bartenders will truly devote all their time and effort into creating any cocktail you wish. You can just tell them what your usual spirit preferences are and what type of cocktail you feel like having and they will talk you through their process step- by-step and ensure you are fully satisfied with your drink. 

So, the food is great, the drinks are great what about the venue itself? This is almost undescribable. It's looks like a cartoon world from the 60's. A truly psychedelic experience with bright colored walls and curvy white plastic interior, they've even got an aquarium built into the wall as you walk in!

When you're next in Manchester - don't miss out on this place!
