Being a student does not mean that an appreciation for this cultural magnet cannot be upheld. Despite propping up one or two of the real pillars of Christmas, North Pole is, for a bar, surprisingly not all about the religious holiday. Under all the tinsel, it’s a place for family and friends to gather together and enjoy the season.
When a bar lined in fur and tinsel awaits it’s hard not to instantly fall in love with this Mancunian Christmas beauty, especially if your heart is already aglow with the joy of the most wonderful time of the year.
Still trying desperately not to sound like an advert but rather a woman merrily possessed with Christmas glee: whether it’s 2 for 1 cocktails or mulled wine that you need to get into the Christmas spirit, the North Pole Bar situated in Cathedral Gardens has a variety on offer. The bar and its knit-clad crew are just waiting for you to get down there and check out Parky the Polar Bear (this is not a joke) for yourselves.
The warm and friendly atmosphere redolent in the beverages is matched by the wooden chalet room, inviting you into what can only be described as a scene from the movies. A picture of a burning log fire, cosy seating, and an inviting atmosphere, coupled with classic pop and dance music. This is how we do Christmas, Manchester-style. What better, and relevant, way to celebrate the festive season than with a spiced Rum Punch and some good old Brit Pop music?
