City & Culture

Drinks at the Principal, Manchester

Lunch-hour drinks are my favorites, and of all the bars I've trolled in Manchester, The refuge at The Principal Hotel tops the list. Great drinks and phenomenal service - I even met Sam, the very funny bartender, who made me the best gin and tonic I have had on this side of the world. I made him an offer to style him for this graduation, but he thought I was too pricey. LOL.

Generally, I love hotels. I usually get to stay in a lot of hotels across the UK, but i never knew there was a gem of a hotel so close to home. Being at the refuge is the closest I have ever come to finding a new paradise at the heart of Manchester. The ambiance was very welcoming and optimistic, staff was unceremoniously polite, and guests had an unwavering smiles on their faces. 

The Principal, Manchester is much more than a home away from home- it a place id love to make my brand new home, even in the most familiar city.
