Make your 2020 at The Pen and Pencil

January means 50% off food five days a week – plus music, music, music and all your Pen and Pencil favourites: Bottomless Brunch, Happy Hour, and our Tuesday quiz.

2020: we're coming for you.

All events are free entry.

Planning a party in 2020?

The Pen and Pencil is a brilliant setting for a private party, meeting or event in the Northern Quarter. Our private room hosts up to 70 people, and the full venue up to 200. Smaller parties are very welcome too.

Pencils Down Quiz – every Tuesday

Four rounds of fast, funny questions on film and TV, general knowledge, music and an anything-goes ‘wildcard’ round. It's £1 entry, winner takes all, and there’s a round of the beers for the best team name. Starts at 7.30pm.

Friday and Saturday Night DJs

Cutting-edge DJs playing soul, funk, house and disco, every Friday and Saturday until 2am. Coming up we've got deep and soulful house from Gareth James on Friday 11 January, and a massive night with Manchester legend Paulette on Saturday 25 January.

And there's more: deals, open mic, Bottomless Brunch

Open Mic Wednesdays: live music every Wednesday from 22 January. And don't miss the food offer: any main or burger and a pint of Amstel or 175ml glass of house wine for £13.

Happy Hour: Monday- Friday, 5pm-7pm. (Includes two for £10 cocktails, £15 bottles of Prosecco, £3 bottle of beer, £10 house wine).

Bottomless Brunch: Saturday 25 January – end the month on a high note with unlimited brunch dishes and booze for £40. It's always popular – advance bookings only.
