When looking at which hotels to feature on our app we found Dakota hotel, this is a four star boutique hotel and has been ranked as one of the top 25 places to stay in the UK and not only that, it’s been voted as one of the highest rated stays around the world! 

Overall the hotel feels very luxurious and the rooms are clean and spacious with a bed you will not want to get out of in the morning. They also have a stylish bar and restaurant on site which had an amazing atmosphere so if you wanted to spend your entire 24 hours in Manchester without even leaving the hotel then you definitely could!

If you’re looking for a busy bar/restaurant in Manchester where you can get dressed up and spend your Friday/Saturday night in, then Firefly is the place to go.

We booked our table for half 8 and left around 1am so we spent our entire night at Firefly. The atmosphere was unmatched and the DJ was playing all the best songs to get everyone in the party mood.

You can either have dinner/drinks or just drinks at the bar but I would definitely suggest you eat here too as the food was incredible.

I would 100% recommend coming here for a birthday or special occasion and definitely get a group of you to go because you will all be dancing around the venue and you’ll have so much fun! 

(Firefly is next door to Menagerie which is also another amazing recommendation  for nightlife in Manchester)

3. Ezra & Gil

  • Brunch/Lunch/Poke bowls
  • Coffee
  • Dog friendly
  • Solo & Groups welcome
  • Drinks to try: Vanilla Latte


We asked a few locals where a good recommendation would be for lunch and they suggested Ezra & Gil (Ezra meaning helper and Gil meaning happiness), the queue was half way down the road which was a good sign so we waited (which was around 10 mins) and the food was amazing.

They also did the best lattes ever so make sure you order one of those if coffee is your thing.
