Set in Manchester’s uber trendy Northern Quarter, Apotheca Bar is popular among students and young professionals alike.
Its location in the basement of a Grade II listed building and its decor of antique pharmacy cabinets – from which it derives its Greek name for ‘pharmacy’ – is just a couple of reasons why punters are constantly being pulled through its doors.
The attention to its design is perhaps another reason why it has become so appealing to the creative types of the city with Queen Anne chairs, ella and meta embossed high stools and black leather sofas a mere selection of the seating options in the bar.
Exposed brickwork walls, huge canvas photos and blood red carpet are just a few elements of drama to this basement bar, offering just enough distinction to make Apotheca drinkers the loyal kind.
Its neighbouring restaurant Dough, serving delicious snack-sized pizzas throughout the bar, might also have something to do with it.
