Date Night Destinations: Manchester Round-Up

Ready to shake up your social life in Manchester? We’ve got a ‘date night destination’ round up in store for you that’s not to be missed. At MFC we know all too well how great relationships form from friendships that connect over common interests, values and fun; at least in the first instance.

We’ve put some good legwork into exploring the amazing city of Manchester to ensure you’ve always got some great ideas in your back pocket for your next date night. We thought we’d take a look at places you can eat, drink, think and move, just like our MFC events categories (and we can promise we’ve had a lot of fun along the way doing so!)

So, say goodbye to traipsing around the city centre looking for the coolest spots to take your next date or mate to, because we’ve got you covered. We know you don’t do things by halves and neither do we, so here it goes…


Mackie Mayor is described as the perfect spot for brunch, lunch or dinner with an atmosphere. This central Manchester venue is a follow-on from Altrinchams award-winning market hall. It’s certainly a spot to step out of the cold and into a warming foodie haven for a drink, dinner and atmospheric destination for date night. More info here

Gotham Hotel If you’re ready to splash out on your date night or social then this is the place for you. They’ve left no stone unturned when it comes to quality in experience, food and service. Visit Gotham’s restaurant or brass bar to take your date night to new heights. The view from the top is to die for and the dining experience just as good. Even if you’re in the mood for a fancy-schmancy cocktail head to a taste of Brooklyn in the heart of Manchester on Kings Street and you absolutely won’t regret it. Visit Website Here


Flight Club If you have an ounce of competitive nature and a dash of co-ordination then you absolutely have to consider heading to flight club in Manchester to make it a date night to remember. Flight club, for those who are more into thinking and moving, moreover drinking and eating, is a darts space with a difference. Both you and your equally competitive dater can play a game of darts that is time-pressured, fun and atmospheric. Move over local pub darts night, this takes the sport to a whole new level. If you’re having a great time you can stay and grab a drink and a bite too – there are different stalls, bars and options for food inside of this quirky date night venue.

Chill Factore Sparks could fly on the slopes over at Chill Factore, or at least a lot of laughs and fun certainly will! This is an incredible place to put your date through their paces and make date night a whole exciting and different experience altogether. Ski, snowboard or slide down the slopes, do whatever works for you or, better yet, sign up to one of their snow workshops so you really learn the ‘ropes of the slopes’. Of course, it’s a chilly destination for date night but you can warm up after with a glass of something or hot chocolate as you de-brief of this incredible date night experience.  Visit website here. 

We’re so excited to hear which places you try, how you’re dating differently and what you’re doing to think out of the box when meeting and greeting great potential matches!

Manchester is one of the most vibrant cities we know and it’s only getting more exciting with all of these fun eateries, bars, popups and next level night’s out to remember. Date night doesn’t just have to be a drink and a chat, it can be made into the coolest, funnest and most memorable of experiences. Date differently and make each moment you invest in the process count!
