My little piece of heaven in Manchester

My little piece of heaven in Manchester

Last night, I found a little bit of my personal heaven right in the heart of Manchester.

Down below, a basement bar. But not just any old basement bar – it was themed around cult film and television. There’s a full-sized Dalek in the DJ booth. A glass cabinet by the bar with various spaceship models. Framed posters fill the walls – and the customers in the bar were a good mix of people. There’s even a pub quiz every Wednesday. I bet they serve Romulan ale behind the bar too…

And above it, just to make it heavenly, there’s a cheap Chinese buffet. So I can fill up with alcohol, geek TV and good times, and then nip upstairs for noodles afterwards.

Does it get any better than that? πŸ™‚


  • Move to Auckland. Bars that good are all over the place.

    And who's this "almost witty" person. Have you republished your entire blog?!

  • My new blog name. There's some changes afoot πŸ˜‰

  • "Almost" witty. Sometimes you overestimate yourself Andy πŸ™‚
    Sounds liek an excellent place. We'll have to go for a lemonade there one evening.

    Only slightly – the first apartment I lived in in America, I had a Mexican restaurant downstairs that I could get to without going outside, and it did happy hour every week night – $2 beers and free tacos. Plus I had my first American proposal of marriage in there.
