If there's one thing to say about 'TV21' (now 'Bar 21'), it's that the decor is pretty cool, and will definitely catch your eye. Unfortunately, that's the best part about the place. The cocktails are not too expensive, yet I remember them being of a much better quality. I ordered a gummibear margarita, which tasted of pure sugar. I couldn't... More

I go here all the time, absolutely love the burgers (seriously recommend the Mother Clucker!) the staff are always friendly and there is always a good atmosphere. Weekends are really busy, especially with the club downstairs, but during the week there's a more chilled vibe which is perfect for after work drinks and so on. Love this place!!

Went here for lunch on a break from shopping at the Arndale. Good menu options, and all reasonably priced. Burgers are fantastic. Very good flavour, and are hand made so are very tender and almost crumble as you bite into it. Excellent place to go for a quick bite to eat.

I had researched this bar and decided to give it a visit. I liked the alien by the toilets but was expecting more of a scifi feel. The bar staff were great, very informative and jolly, which helps. Drinks were cheap but was fairly quiet for a Sunday night.

Always a good atmosphere. Came for a few beers whilst on a walk about around the Northern Quarter. Missed the old sofas but still comfy seating.

We booked here for my a meal with 10 friends for a lads night out - from the website it looked like a restaurant and bar, but it's not - the seating area is in the bar, so as we dined we were surrounded by people getting quite merry. That's said, the food was excellent, I personally had Venison &... More

We visited TV21 for dinner on a Friday night, we ordered drinks, burgers and nachos from the bar but as it was quite early it wasn't too busy, and there were plenty of friendly staff working so there wasn't really a long wait for anything which was good. The decor is great - all retro film pictures and models! The... More

Love manchesters northern quarter and this bar/restaurant is a really good choice for a drink and to eat, menus mainly tex mex and a good range of salads, its child friendly in the day early evening, with artifacts from film and tv around the place makes it a great place to chill, recommended it top place

We stumbled upon this bar whilst on a visit to Manchester. We loved the ambiance of TV21. Inside there are little booths with great movie pictures on the walls. The bar staff where very friendly and helpful. I was given a taste of a couple of beers to try before I purchased. My wife and I ordered a platter to... More
