Plan a Perfect Date in Manchester

Do something special in the city with your significant other. Here’s where to stay, where to eat, and what to do for a date night to remember in Manchester.

The Lowry Hotel
At the point where Salford meets Manchester, on the banks of the River Irwell, sits The Lowry Hotel. This 5-star hotel is right in the heart of the city and boasts the largest rooms in Manchester’s centre, as well as super king-sized beds.

Best For
The huge floor-to-ceiling windows bring welcome lots of natural light. On the first floor is the Spa which has a private treatment room for couples, making it a great way for you and your other half to spoil yourselves. And the River Bar and Terrace is the perfect place to kick off your weekend with a couple of cocktails overlooking the waterfront.

Head to Ibérica in Spinningfields for a Spanish fine dining experience. Ibérica’s two outdoor terraces are great places to hang out with friends at the end of the working week. If you’re after something more relaxed, check out their bar area where you can enjoy some pinchos (mini tapas) and a jug of Sangria before heading out into the city centre.

What To Order
Make sure you try their incredible Juan Pedro Domecq Ibérico ham with a glass of wine that Ibérica handpick from boutique Spanish wineries. The traditional seafood paella is, of course, a delicious option and, if you’re feeling adventurous, the Galician style octopus is a real winner too.

Hidden Cinema
There’s more than meets the eye at boutique hotel, King Street Townhouse. Located in a Grade II listed building, the hotel has a new subterranean surprise up its sleeve. Step down into the cellar to see the newly transformed space that is now home to an intimate 20-seater screening room that’s available for hire. You and a group of friends can relax in plush deep grey sofa-style seating and enjoy your favourite films thanks to the state of the art screen and sound system. No movie night would be complete without snacks, so you’ll find all your favourites on offer here, from ice cream and pic ‘n’ mix to classic popcorn.

Call 0161 667 0707 to book the cinema room. Head to to find out more about the hotel.
