About The Font Manchester

A favourite among Manchester’s cool folk and student crowd alike with their infamous two-quid cocktails, The Font is a stylish bar and restaurant conveniently located on New Wakefield Street, a short walk from Oxford Road station and MMU. With quirky circus-themed decor The Font is one of Manchester city centre’s most stylish venues, popular for both dinner as well as drinks with DJs spinning tunes in the evening and exhibitions regularly taking place. The cocktail menu may draw in the crowds but don’t miss out on the food on offer at The Font either, you’ll find everything from gourmet burgers to burritos, big breakfasts, hot dogs, sandwiches and wraps on the menu. We recommend the Fleetwood Mac (mac ‘n’ cheese with four different cheeses and roasted garlic) washed down with a cocktail or some craft beer from the lengthy list.
