Arrived in Manchester late on a Friday night and looking for a decent place to have a drink. Found Via and was very happy to find evening entertainment still on, the bar was busy and had a fantastic atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Visited here whilst on a night out in Manchester. Fairly priced, good atmosphere and good music. Worth a visit.

On a weekday night, the place was quietish. Enough people that it didn't feel empty. Wandered in a circuit around the place & it was well-kept with a few nooks and crannies and comfy seating in corner areas. Seemed pretty well kept.
