24 hours in Manchester

Another Heart To Feed


The city has changed and evolved so much in the last couple of years, it’s time to plot an around-the-clock adventure, says Lucy Noone 

8am – Warehouse wake up   

Native aparthotel at Ducie Street Warehouse is an ideal place to base yourself – on the edge of the NQ, right by the station and fully kitted out apartment style rooms make it super convenient. It’s a huge, airy old warehouse building with incredible views over the Pennines too. 

11am Fuel at Federal 

Federal NQ – Aussie sunshine in a cup (cheesy, sorry) but the staff smile, the Portuguese owner makes sure there are pastel de nata alongside the Anzac biscuits and great breakfasts – you can’t help but leave happy.

2pm Slurp stop 

Cocktail Beer Ramen Bun- Squashed on a busy bus route through the NQ is CBRB which has nailed on its food/service/booze so beautifully. They do half size ramen (Tantanmen all day) so you can have a bao on the side and a wine at lunch without needing a lie down. 

4pm Pick up the pace 

I love Barry’s Bootcamp; they arrived in Manchester a couple of years ago and the workout is great but I’d be lying if I said the best bit wasn’t the showers. Malin & Goetze products, as many towels as you like, candles; it’s a bit like you’ve just wandered into a hotel room to get dressed. https://www.instagram.com/barrysuk/

6pm Let the drinking commence 

Another Heart To Feed on Stephenson Square have just opened pouring a short wine, perfect winelist and full Brooklyn vibes. Another one with cracking service too. https://www.instagram.com/anotherhearttofeed/ 

8pm If it ain’t broke… 

Hawksmoor. Hands down the best dinner you’re going to get here. Hawksmoor’s renowned service style lends itself well to a city fond of a big dinner and a good night out – impeccable yet laid back, capable of turning it up to 100 when required. 


10pm The night is young 

It’s got to be Albert’s Schloss – it’s manic and noisy, the music is live and the drinks get spilled but you will have fun in this Bavarian bier palace even if you’re the most miserable soul alive. 


7am Gooey to go 

I know this is a massive treat but you’re on holiday…Gooey are making the best cookies and doughnuts going. Special flavours every weekend and served from a little cabin in the entrance of the Native hotel. Take a box for whomever waits at home – you’ll be popular.
