Back in 2009, Ian Morgan fulfilled his dream to open a bar when he converted a former textile warehouse into a bar he called Corridor. Then in the summer of 2017, Adam Day and Shane Kilgarriff took over this unlikely site and turned it into a hidden treat called Peggy’s Bar. Named after a former local landlady who was famous for her parties, this dimly-lit cocktail bar is one of the best in Manchester.
Peggy's is a 15 minute stroll or a short cab ride from more central Manchester bars but is well worth the journey.(Top tip – there’s a cut-through to the Trinity pedestrian bridge at the end of the alley).
