We’re located at the centre of the action, so you’re only a short stroll to a bar or special occasion restaurant. Impress your partner with our guide for the top things to do for couples in Manchester…


1. Chocolate themed afternoon tea

Nothing says romance like chocolate! Cocoa Cabana Chocolatiers do an afternoon tea that melts the heart. With unlimited hot chocolate, cute sandwiches and all manner of chocolate covered goodies this is a must for chocoholics everywhere. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a glass of prosecco or champagne for an extra cost, or unlimited prosecco if you’re feeling downright bold.

2. Eat, drink and sing in Chinatown

When you stay at Wilde Aparthotels St. Peter’s Square you’re just a couple of minutes’ walk from one of the UK’s biggest Chinatowns. Grab a bubble tea, take a picture under the beautiful archway or enjoy a meal at one of the many authentic Chinese restaurants. Karaoke and late night drinks can be found in some of the bars.


3. Ginger’s Comfort Emporium

We all scream for ice-cream! Ginger’s is the perfect spot for a creamy, colourful pick-me-up. These guys do ice-cream a little bit differently… Expect experimental flavours like ‘marmalade on toast’ and ‘olive oil and sea salt’. Find it on the first floor of Afflecks, an eclectic variety shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.


4. Cocktails and a view at Cloud 23

Head in the clouds? It might be at Cloud 23, a cocktail bar with a panoramic view of the city. Try a signature cocktail, like the ‘Up, Up & Away’ in the shape of a balloon. Each cocktail is inspired by a classic Manchester moment. The pro romantic move is to go at sunset for a special drink with an incredible view (and we don’t mean your date!).

6. Treetop Adventure Golf

For a slice of competition with your date, take a swing at Treetop Adventure Golf. With two indoor 18-hole mini golf courses you can always demand a re-match! Choose the Tropical Trail or Ancient Explorer, if you win the bonus 19th hole you get a free round! Refuel with a pizza in Pizza Cabana’s or head to the Toucan bar for a post-game drink.


7. Spirit of Manchester Distillery

Calling gin lovers everywhere! The Spirit of Manchester Distillery will take you on a production tour and fill you with samples of their delicious gins. After, head to Three Little Words, their cocktail and small plates bar tucked away under historic Grade-II listed railway arches. Date night sorted.
