“Good way to see the city”
Review of Cloud 23 Bar

Cloud 23 Bar
Ranked #5 of 208 Nightlife in Manchester
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Afternoon tea and views over the city, it is great on a clear day but even better at dusk as the sun goes down and the lights come on all over the city. The tea is a bonus but it really is about te views, the glass floor isn't that fantastic but that is because it isn't really capturing anything but a bit of road and the pavement. The expensive chandelier wasn't worth the investment.

What a brilliant bar, everyone should experience it if visiting Manchester,
The views are amazing and even better when dark. Up to date music, friendly atmosphere,
There should be a bar like this in every city. Location is easy walk to the main life of Manchester.
To get in the queue to the lift can be long especially on a weekend.

Visited Cloud 23 with family and friends and was really impressed with the view' . Very expensive non alcoholic cocktails at £8 each approx .
I would recommend visiting it a least once for something different to do in Manchester, It is very relaxing and the staff did not rush us out of the place, Would like to visit again.

Myself and some work colleagues visited Cloud 23 one evening and were disappointed. The surly bouncer by the lift told us to "Stand on the carpet!" and made us feel like we weren't good enough to be granted entry. When we eventually did enter the bar, there was plenty of space. We chose where to sit and were just getting comfortable when a waiter came and told us to move. He swiftly escorted to another seat, by the toilets and away from the view.

Looking around at the people in the bar, it seemed we were moved closer to the "rif raf". We endured just one drink which was impossible to enjoy as mixed in with the smell of sewage from the toilets. The service was okay but certainly not what I would expect from a place such as this.

I went to Cloud 23 bar with a group of ladies for a 40th Birthday. The view is stunning (on a clear day) and the decor is very luxurious. The cocktail menu is comprehensive and quite pricey but as i would expect in a place like this!
I did try to reserve an area for us but was told they were fully booked on the day / time we were attending. However when we arrived (6:30 on a Saturday) there was plenty of space and we were given a bar table. I would imagine it gets busier later on, and make sure you factor in time to que for the lift up to the bar.
