We only went into Atlas to meet some friends for pre-meal drinks before going to Deansgate Locks but I would've stayed forever. I love good quality gin & the menu in here was amazing. Enough detail that it didn't overwhelm you but a massive choice. The bar staff were very friendly & the bar... read more

We were looking forward to a lovely meal and a few drinks here, but as our visit was the same time as the Great Manchester Run, this lot decided that they wanted to charge for the toilets - anyone who has children knows that when they need to go they need to go - so we popped across the road...

We are sorry that you left our venue, feeling that way. We raised £30, from the toilet 20p's, on Sunday, that goes to The British Heart Foundation; we had connections with one of their runners. If our staff did not explain this to you, enough, we can only apologise. More

Fantastic garden space with comfy seats and even blankets to keep you warm when the sun goes down! There are around 160 gins to choose from and the staff are very passionate about the selection; always great to meet fellow gin lovers. Loved this place and would definitely return!

We went to the Atlas bar after an early show at the Comedy Store. I thought the atmosphere was good but the music a bit loud for conversation. My partner has been after work on occasion and found it better then - less noisy. I would recommend as it is handy for Deansgate locks and the train station.

In January, I went to the first Gin Supper Club at Atlas bar. 3 courses with a gin matched to each course and a bit of a talk from an expert about each gin and a bit of history. I must add, that this is not the first gin themed evening I have attended. I have been to numerous gin... More
