I'd give Hockley or the Lace Market a go if you're looking for somewhere a bit more up market

Revolution in Hockley is a good choice to start a 40th celebration. Have eaten there and the food is decent for a bar. Quite relaxed too during the day into the early evening, then I imagine it livens up. These vouchers could be handy too

Agree revolution if it's early on, gets a little cheesy late on. Other options where you get good drinks

Fat cats

Saltwater

Browns

Living room

Cock a hoop

If you're looking for somewhere with outside seating then go for the Cornerhouse which has a good selection of nice bars that serve food and restaurants.

Alternatively the Waterfront by the canal will be nice if the weather is good......although you may struggle to get pimms or a decent cocktail as its more just standard bars.

My suggestion is the Cape Bar on Victoria Street all round. It is a lively place which is one of my frequent haunts! Food is good and you can sit outside. They do have a cocktail list too!

You could try the Sir John Borlase Warren at Canning Circus. A fantastic beer garden, they do great cocktails and home cooked food. There's also a massive scalextric track to hire called The Racing Room.

Pitcher and piano for the beautiful building (old church).

As suggested, Saltwater is great and has a lovely outdoor area on a balcony.

The Canal house is great for outdoor drinks if. It worried about being too up-market.
