This is a good bar, but I think that they are trying to make it more impressive than it is. We booked, but still have to wait a while - when once inside it was not even full. The cocktails were great, but the service was too slow! They would make a lot more money if they realised when peoples... More

Dropped in here before heading to the centre of town and were lucky to get a table as it was very busy with Afternoon Tea (that needs to be booked) Had a great table and great staff who looked after us. The cocktails are a little different than the norm but very nice and views over Manchester as it was... More

I took my girlfriend for a surprise to Cloud 23. The first thing I must say is book in advance. When we got there so many people had to be turned away as they were fully booked. It is not that expensive for what you get. The views from the lounge are amazing. We had a table by one of... More

There`s some unfavourable reviews written about this place - and yes - it is fair to say that the only reason I visited was to see the views. Due to its location (and probably its overheads too), I expected it to be pricey. However, it wasn`t quite as pricey as expected, it was a nice experience, and i will probably... More

In fairness sat to watch the sunset but was never told we could we could walk around to the stylish bar area. We were dumped in the old DIRTY section. The chair was broken and tilted back when you sat on it. Crumbs on the chairs and table dirty hand marks on the window booked for boyfriends Birthday and LP... More

I was lucky enough to be treated to pre-lunch cocktails at Cloud 23 Bar. The breath taking views are the 1st noticable difference from other venues as you exit the lift and are shown to your table, the next difference is the quality of the service and the friendliness of the staff. The cocktails are amazing and the whole occasion... More

I came here with friends who were visiting Manchester for afternoon tea. I'm so glad I made this choice as the views were fantastic. The food was lovely and the atmosphere really relaxing and exclusive. The service was spot on. We had a great time and I will certainly be returning.

Visited during our weekend in Manchester for my birthday. Yes it's pricey but we were aware of that so no surprise. We were seen to and seated straight away with a great seat overlooking the city in the window. Very polite staff and cocktails were delicious! It's definitely worth a visit to see the spectacular views!

You really are just paying for the view here. The staff are "nice", but the venue is seriously understaffed, and as a result the service is extremely slow. It took us 2 hrs 30 mins for a Sunday afternoon tea. The food served was fresh but not something you'd wait 2 hours for..The "unlimited refills on tea and coffee" are... More

We visited on a Saturday for afternoon tea. Well, beside the view there is nothing I would recommend this place for. This is an afternoon tea factory, the staff is too busy to provide an attentive service. The food was just enough for me but a stop at McDo was required to satisfy my friend's appetite. No refill or tea... More
