Welcome Back To An Icon, Atlas Bar, Deansgate

Welcome back to an icon

Situated in the railway arches of Deansgate, Atlas Bar has been a Manchester icon for two decades, and has now matured into a elegant, quality bar specialising in gins from around the world.

Winner of Best Spirits Bar North West 2014 and Winner of Best Bar Team North West 2015.

Following a full refurbishment, Atlas still has the quirky individualism that made it the go-to bar of the likes of 'Mr Manchester', Tony Wilson, but now adds to that some amazing products, homely service... and of course our huge terrace which is fully heated and covered to be used in all weathers - WINNER of the DesignMyNight.com Best Beer Garden Award 2014/15!


Atlas is now open from 8am Monday to Friday serving a delicious breakfast and a wide selection of coffees/tea. Dont have the time to eat in? You can even get your coffee and breakfast to go.


Our food offering is growing for 2015... We have just launched the new Autumn Lunch menu from Head Chef Ross Parker [Arbutus/Harvey Nichols]. Classics and Autumn nibbles aplenty.. as well our usual Soup & Sandwich Lunch deal! We serve food daily right through until 3pm and our bar snacks menu is available all day every day!

Private Events

Private events are also our speciality. From small buffets to large corporate events we have both the space and the expertise to create the perfect event.. not forgetting the huge terrace outside that can also be booked exclusively where you can enjoy our fantastic Terrace BBQ menu.. OR our new 'Garden Party' package - in all weathers! Ask to see our 'Perfect Parties' guide.


Our gin selection is ever growing.. currently standing at 210. Our latest additions are Tanqueray Bloomsbury, Gin SUL and the fabulous Brooklyn returns after a sad absence! And we are proud to announce the arrival of the simply stunning Thomas Dakin too.. 

Atlas has matured from a feisty little bar yapping at the heels of the established operators to an independent quality bar aiming to offer the best products in the best environment in the very best way... make sure you pop down and see us soon!
