Mackie Mayor is one of Manchester’s newest openings, but it’s quickly become my favourite place to hang out and take visitors.
Its grand location is inside a Grade II listed former meat market. The stunning interior, under a gigantic glass roof, features long, sociable tables surrounded by a variety of street food vendors.
I like to go for coffee in a morning, snacks at lunchtime and dinner and drinks in the evening – it’s one of the most versatile places in the city. There are lots of food and drink options to suit all tastes and budgets – I like Wolf House Coffee for their flat whites and delicious selection of cakes; Tender Cow’s mouthwatering steaks; and Blackjack’s extensive selection of beers.
It gets super busy pretty much all day, so head down early to avoid disappointment!
