Queue for 30-40 minutes to just get in the lift and then once you're finally in the bar, expect to wait 30 minutes for an overpriced drink! We gave up and left the bar before our extortionate drinks had even materialised... pathetic.

Visited quite late on a Friday evening, waited about 10 mins on ground level for a free table, when we got to the 23rd floor it didn't seem too busy, but the guys on the entrance were friendly, so that wasn't a problem. The views from floor 23 are beautiful & are ultimately the reason why you are paying top... More

We came here with friends to celebrate, we were staying at he hotel so made a reservation, which was helpful as it meant we bypassed the long queue. We ordered our first round of drinks, the menu takes a while to read, there is a piece about each cocktail. Thoughts were varied, 2 of us loved ours and 2 were... More

we went here christmas time. the drinks were a little expensive but worth every penny when you feel like your sitting ontop of the world and the staff music and the atmosphere is just spot on!

also, I could see Beyonce performing at the Trafford stadium, but couldn't hear what she was saying, so it was a bit of a damper on the experience.

We came here for drinks as part of my brother-in-laws birthday celebrations. We knew it wouldn't be cheap before visiting however still decided to go as it was for a special occasion. We had to queue for a short time as it was Saturday evening and busy however this was very civilized and well organised. As predicted it cost around... More

Visited for afternoon tea and i couldn't rate this place any higher. it was the most amazing experience. if driving there...there is a car park over the road...£6 all day or you could you use the NCP car parks surrounding the building so parking should not be an issue. if you are planning to stay in city centre i would...

Really great service - we were in quickly and had great service by the staff plus they were more than willing to take photos as we were celebrating an occasion. Drinks were nice and we got a good table but we did pay the extra £20 to be seated by a window and have some nibbles. Also be warned this... More

Very blasé attitude .. Drinks just sat on the dispense bar not being taken ... A couple next to us waited forever for drinks... drinks were also sat on bar for ages whilst bartenders, waiters, runners and even managers walked past ignoring them. £13 for what they call 'the dean' is actually just an overpriced mojito with a drop of...
