We recently had a weekend in Manchester. It was quite a visual city. The Northern Quarter was packed full of unique galleries and restaurants/bars. You are able to pick up on the great vibe from just walking the streets.
I am not a foodie by any means, but I do love food. Artisan is a restaurant I have been looking forward to visiting. I'm not going to lie, this is one of the main reasons I wanted to visit the city. Not only is the food and drink amazing, but the overall aesthetic is spot on. It all works.
