Bakerie Bread & Wine Bar really is the upper crust
AWARD-WINNING Bakerie bar has made itself the Northern Quarter stalwart of bread and wine since setting up shop back in 2011. As its name might suggest, Bakerie knows a thing or two about knocking out a loaf – a crust or two accompanies the menu staples of hearty stews and home cookery-inspired comfort food, so baking takes place on site every day. You can take a fresh loaf home with you, even, or you can sign up to one of the breadmaking courses and learn how to make a bit of dough for yourself.

Bakerie is also famous for being a go-to place for large groups, with sharing platters – including the Sunday Roast Tapas Board – a great way to get your mates together for some nosh and a natter. There’s also a fairly new series of events called Long Table Dining, when 32* like-minded souls rock up for a special main dish and drink combo and eat in a line along the 40-foot communal dining table – the Bakerie’s take on the ever-popular supper club.
And as well as breaking bread with friends old and new, the “grazing for grown-ups” concept extends to drinks. There’s an extensive range of wines served by the glass, the bottle and from the wine jukebox, which we’re told was the first in Manchester. This lets you sample various types as your fancy takes you or you can sign up for one of the regular wine-tasting sessions in the recently opened wine cellar bar. Oh, go on then…
